Was a GTX 760 actually the recommended GPU at launch? This game will max out a GTX 1060 6GB at times. I've had to drop down to high from ultra, and even then there are a few specific situations (the basement of the Badham preschool, the main menu for some events, etc.) where I'll be at 100% GPU load and below 60 FPS.

Low. Your CPU and RAM would be fine even on Ultra, but your GPU is relatively weak and this game is way more demanding on the GPU than the requirements here would suggest. You may even need to reduce resolution to maintain a consistent 60 FPS.

You can on 720p low-medium. Maybe it will go below 30fps sometimes because of your CPU.
