Considering I get like 80 FPS easily on Noshar Canals and like 45 FPS on the most demanding maps even on Medium at 1680 x 1050 Res I don't think 1080p, Probably 30-45 FPS on 720P I am guessing

You can do what you want, I guess my computer is just **** because of its parts? Like I don't understand man... I said "I am guessing" because I wasn't sure if you could get 60 or not
