I run at 1440p Ultra average of 136fps at the largest maps without AA... So, I'm guessing you could be at ultra at 144fps as well.

ram upgrade, not for the game but overall system performance, you should be able to get about 40-50 fps on 1080p, I do think you should play the game at 720p 0r 768p, itll look a bit better and you'll get like 10+ fps, my recomendation
