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 Another thing to consider is the DirectX capability of your GPU. Project CARS needs a GPU capable of running DirectX 11.00. We suggest a 8 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.

AMD cards on this game just flat out do not run well at all. I've got a 480 and my frames are always in the 30FPS.

I voted no because... high would be hard to run for your gpu medium to low works well

i don't think 60 FPS on 1980x1080p. you are limited by your CPU and a little by GPU. you should just try it and fiddle with the settings. try a demo version to get to know how your rig will do you can probably get 60FPS if you lower the settings a tiny bit
