Ultra easy as it can be….. your resolution makes things lot more easier for your rig. But i believe that even on 1920x1080 you would get 40-50 fps.

Really? Im getting 56-64 fps in town and an average of 47 outside of town. Maybe updating the GPU drivers will help?

I had the same issue, but playing Metro 2033 (demanding as hell). The solution was a clean instalation of the Nvidia driver, now it is 45-60 fps all the time.

Another thing to mention about this game. Many have problems even with high end AMD HD7000 series GPU's even on mega rigs. This game demands newer cards with AMD. Go R7 250 trust me. GPU makes a world of difference with this game. go new.
