PC System Analysis For Project CARS Requirements
Project CARS will require Radeon HD 7790 graphics card with a Core i7-3770S 4-Core 3.1GHz or FX-8350 processor to reach the recommended specs, achieving high graphics setting on 1080p. 8 GB will also be needed to achieve the Project CARS rec specs and get 60FPS. Project CARS needs a graphics card thats at least as powerful as a GeForce GTX 260/Radeon HD 5770 1024MB paired with Phenom II X4 940/Core 2 Quad Q8400 2.66GHz CPU to match the min specs. This PC setup will deliver 25-35 Frame Per Second at Low graphics setting on 720p resolution. Don't try and play Project CARS without 2 GB, which helps get the 30FPS You will require a DirectX 11 GPU. We suggest a 9 year old PC to play smoothly.

Thinking about buying this game, but I am not sure what FPS I will get? on high to ultra. Don't want min frame drop below 40fps. Ideally I want solid 60FPS.
