Garry's Mod (officially abbreviated to GMod) is a sandbox physics game that allows the player to manipulate objects and experiment with physics using the Source engine. Garry's Mod has been available on Steam's content delivery service since November 29, 2006. rnDespite being a standalone game, Garry's Mod requires the user to own at least one game on Steam based on the Source engine, such as Half-Life 2, Counter-Strike: Source, Portal 2, or Team Fortress 2. It is also commonly used for the creation and publishing of videos on YouTube, mainly from Team Fortress 2, Half-Life 2, Portal and Left 4 Dead.

Garrys Mod

GeForce GT 1030

Low Vs Ultra GeForce GT 1030 Performance Review

We can see that when playing Garrys Mod with a GeForce GT 1030 will return a consistently high 200+ frame rate. Those frames are achieved on Garrys Mod when being played at 1920x1080 screen resolution and on High graphics.

Playing Garrys Mod on Ultra 4k is certainly possible with this graphics card and we expect it will return around 200+ frames per second at that top scale resolution.

Finding a PC with this gpu or better would return some strong FPS in Garrys Mod. We would definitely recommend running at 4K screen res and on ultra, before trying any lower screen resolution. You would also need at least 1GB of RAM.

In summary, Ultra graphics setting is highly achievable with this GeForce GT 1030 card, but what monitor resolution are you looking to play Garrys Mod at, because you can get 200+ FPS at Ultra 4K. But perhaps you feel better served at 1440p, where you would get 200+ frames per second on Ultra 1440p. Lower the resolution further and you get a blistering 200+ FPS at 1080p Ultra.
