    NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M 1 GB graphics

    Compare the specs for the game to the specs for the computer. That is easy enough by hitting the games' sites.

    Yes it will run, quite well in fact. It will actually run on the last 3 generations (from the GT330m onwards) as long as your GPU has 512MB of RAM.

    You will need to use Boot Camp (although apparently it will actually work on wine in OS X if you're crazy enough to try it) - best place to buy it (in my opinion) is Steam.

    Thanks man. I've looked up the specs before but they can seem unclear to a novice like me. And I am a frequent user of Boot Camp and Steam, so it's good to know everything is compatible.

    No worries, happy gaming. It's one of the best games in the last year.
