My mid-range rig (Core 2 Duo 6700, 4GB RAM, 8800GTS 512) runs Risen pretty smooth at the default draw distance at 1280x1024 with all options on high, but struggles a bit in certain places - Harbor City, the Swamp during weather effects, etc.
Even with this graphics improvement, this game is not very demanding, a friend of mine has an older amd X2 5600 + 2.8 a 4870 Radeon 512, 4 GB ram. 1680 X 1050 res, everything maxed, game is smooth as butter. this is a middle of the road PC these days.
