Just use Digital Foundry's equivalent graphics settings to Xbox One X and it will run pretty nice at 1080p, or a 1440p with downscale.

If my CPU is OC'd to 5.0 GHz and my GPU is OC'd to 2.0+ GHz, will I be able to run this on high settings on 4k at 60fps? This game is very demanding so not sure if my rig can run it.
