Not sure why, but I've dropped 30 frames since I last benchmarked this game. Now, I'm at average of 101fps :/

Valve always has good optimization in games, you can run with anything. But you need at least 144hz monitor for the best experience. This is the purest fps action ever. Making high quality doesn't mean anything. Also, ping affects game much. Good luck.
