What kind of GPU do you need to max this with ubersampling on and get 60+ fps? I can easily max it, but ubersampling literally "eats" 20+ fps.

on mt current rig, but using a gtx 650ti instead of the 970, i was able to play the game on ultra 1080p (no uber sampling) and get around 45 fps… your cpu is a bit weaker, but your gpu very similar, so in 768p i believe you can run the game on high easily. hope this helps :)

that is absolutely NOT true…. ;)
as long as the cpu isn't LIMITING the gpu or the other way around it's ok.
CPU and GPU usage are NOT bound together or by each other and the IDEAL scenarios is if both the GPU and CPU(and RAM) are at 100%, BUT the problem is that this is not a gaming console, and thus windows or your OS has background processes running while you are playing so you need spare CPU and RAM resources to deal with them, you don't need gpu resources for them, since they are not GRAPHICAL.
I hope I explained it to you :)

an older rig i had was using 2gb ram, 9600gt 1gb, core 2 duo 2.2ghz and i was able to play the game on low 720p average fps around 35…. you will probably be able to play it around medium at similar framerates or even higher. My older pc had a bit bottlenecking though, yours won't.
