Back of the Box

Star Citizen brings the visceral action of piloting interstellar craft through combat and exploration to a new generation of gamers at a level of fidelity never before seen. At its core Star Citizen is a destination, not a one-off story. It's a complete universe where any number of adventures can take place, allowing players to decide their own game experience. Pick up jobs as a smuggler, pirate, merchant, bounty hunter, or enlist as a pilot, protecting the borders from outside threats. I've always wanted to create one cohesive universe that encompasses everything that made Wing Commander and Privateer / Freelancer special. A huge sandbox with a complex and deep lore allowing players to explore or play in whatever capacity they wish.

Which resolution, settings and fps? I think the 760 could do medium-high on 1080p, high in 720p, with decent fps (30-40). That being said, I do not own this game, haven't played it, and it's nowhere near completion, so it's hard to know.

As on right now they have the hangar and Arena Commander modules. I've been playing those a lot and you can for sure play those on max settings. As for the rest of the game:
Spring 15: FPS Beta +Planetside/Social Beta
Summer 15: Arena Comm. 2.0
Fall 15: Ep1 of Campaign
End of 15/Early 16: Persistent Universe/Launch

I don't think that would be optimal. My FX 6300 is ok, for now. And a 7790 is getting pretty old. 1GB of VRAM isn't enough for SC. Plus, with the FPS module coming this year, the requirements are just going to rise.
If I were you, I'd stick w/ an intel CPU, buy an i7 series, then pick up a R9 series GPU.

You may be able to get away with low-med settings with that GPU, but that CPU can't handle any settings.

yes, you're right.
At low settings arena commander is fluid.
On average it is playable.
Hangar is playable.
