My GPU is a somewhat overclocked version of the recommended GPU. It still maxes out my GPU on minimum settings at 1080p without giving me a stable frame rate. Make sure you're at least a bit above the recommended requirements if you want a chance at running this game smoothly at 1080p without downscaling.

If I'm GPU limited on a GTX 1060 6GB and can't maintain 60 FPS at minimum settings, there's no chance a 1050 Ti is going to handle 60 FPS on medium.

its playable using RX 560 2gb on 720p
but unfortunately your CPU compared to the video will produce different results (lower fps)

At High setting you can play it at 1440p without any hidrances. You can even set it at ultra and get 55fps on average, only dense populated areas will have drops at 45fps and maybe when there are extreme weather effects.

Thanks for the feedback. I'll certainly try for 1440p if I can snag an appropriate monitor in the holiday sales. I don't play on Ultra anyway because I rarely notice a difference between it and high settings.

You have to tweak some towards mediumish if you want to have a stable 60FPS on that card. If you're alright with drops to the 40s territory sometimes and having the average of 60, then maybe.
