So we start off with a monitor resolution of 1920x1200, I've dropped 1280x1024 and 1600x1200 as there aren't popular monitor resolution any more - all tests have DX11 / Very High Image Quality mode enabled according to the settings we have shown you in the past few pages. This is the internal benchmark, we can only recommend Very High Quality settings for new and modern high-range graphics cards, and here's why. Our scores are average frame rates so you need to take a margin in mind for lower FPS at all times. As such we say 40 FPS for this game should be your minimum, while 60 FPS (frames per second) can be considered optimal. Ideally you start with an Radeon 7970 or GeForce GTX 670, which both are fairly EXPENSIVE but will offer you nice performance versus that great Very High Quality mode.
But can the game run mid-range graphics cards at 1920x1200 / FullHD ?
Difficult - in a more civilized 1920x1200 monitor resolution you'll notice that the numbers are crumbling down fast. Keep that 40 FPS minimum in mind as you want a little reserve. Also keep in mind that all levels are different, some more harsh on the GPU than others. A GeForce GTX 650 To Boost might be great for the money but in this resolution it will be a tough nugget, as well as a Radeon HD 7870. For mainstream graphics cards you're going to need to throttle back to High or Normal image quality modes. BTW, notice that the GeForce GTX 690, Titan and Radeon HD 7990 are so dang close, that actually does smell like a CPU bottleneck right there.
A monitor resolution of 2560x1600 is of course even more complicated, still with a GeForce GTX 680 or Radeon HD 7970 Ghz you could manage the job reasonably well. The internal benchmark is just really heavy. The good news is that overall gameplay definitely feels a hint faster opposed to what you see in the benchmark. So you do have some reserve as the benchmark is extremely taxing.
Anmd if SSAA is your thing, we'd recommend something spicy like a GeForce GTX Titan. These are your average framerates at Very HIGH Image Quality settings enabled with the internal benchmark.
