You can play the game full ultra settings with 60fps+ especially on that res. With ubersampling on you should get around 30-+ (i was able to get around 25++ fps with ubersampling on on a gtx650ti 1GB)

Full ultra 60FPS+, even with ubersampling on you will probably get a playable framerate, not 60fps, but playable

yes definitely recommend.Your pc will run it well over 30fps, i used to have a pc with core2duo 2.2ghz 2gb ram GT9600 1GB gpu, and i was able to play the game with around 30-+FPS on low 720p..The one you have now can definitely push more fps, i would say that on 1080p you will be able to play medium with playable fps

You've been duped by the lowballed (recommended) system requirements. I had similar performance @1080p with mostly low/medium settings on a hd7770. Had to drop to even 720p to get smooth frames, but even then the frametimes were all over the place. Sometimes they just lowball the requirements to get more people to buy the game. Ended up buying it on xbox. Looked worse but ran much more consistent.

Your res is too high, i've seen guys running the game with similar frame rates on 720p with r7 250. Your r7 250x aint way better, but allows you to get a bit more fps in games. Put a lower resolution like 1360x768p or even 720p. Put everything on low, with texture downscaling high and texture memory size at very small
