Its hard to max this game on any GPU except top tier like gtx 1080,i would say around high settings at 1080p for good fps.

Nope it is not GPU problem here it is CPU. My i7 3770K oc to 4.2 GH goes to 100% utilization and my FPS drop to 50 when that happens and gpu utilization stay at 70%. Only at this game i experience bottleneck.

This game is so badly optimized and even skylake i5's are having problems with utilization in this game going up to 98%.Also its not just the CPU problem in game,its GPU when you just lower some settings,you still get 98% cpu usage but frame rate improved a lot,what does that tell you?
