Overclocking to 30%,how is that possible withut driver failure?However if i can run on high except textures on low at my res,than you can go even for medium-high textures cause you have more vram with pretty good fps.P.S You max expirience fps drops cause of your CPU,as this is very cpu intensive game.Good luck! :D

This is badly optimized game that even a gtx 1060 is having trouble running on ultra even on 1080p,so for you running at 1440p on ultra is impossible(without lagg).Go try with High settings and than see where to go,but i think medium-high is best option.

The 970 isn't the greatest performer when it comes to 1440p. I can't keep my game at ultra 1080p with constant 60fps.
