Tales of Monkey Island: Chapter 1 - Launch of the Screaming Narwhal packshot image
While explosively stripping the evil pirate LeChuck of his demonic mojo, Guybrush Threepwood inadvertently infects the entire Caribbean with the arch-fiend's expelled voodoo, which threatens to transform buccaneers into unruly pirate monsters. Pursued by a notorious cut-throat Pirate Hunter and a creepy French Physician who believes that Guybrush's eerily-infected hand holds the secret of eternal life, Threepwood sails the seven seas in search of La Esponja Grande, a legendary sea sponge with unparalleled voodoo exfoliating abilities. But little does Guybrush know, his quest is part of a larger, more sinister plot, and good and evil are not always as they seem.

Tales of Monkey Island: Chapter 1 - Launch of the Screaming Narwhal

GeForce GTX 970 4GB

Low Vs Ultra GeForce GTX 970 4GB Performance Review

Booting up Tales of Monkey Island: Chapter 1 - Launch of the Screaming Narwhal with the 7 year old GeForce GTX 970 4GB looks like it will get a very strong 200+ FPS. And those results are assuming a 1920x1080 screen resolution at High setting level.

When looking at the recommended requirements for Tales of Monkey Island: Chapter 1 - Launch of the Screaming Narwhal we can see that this GeForce GTX 970 4GB is far better served running it on Ultra even at 4K, where it would achieve 200+FPS. But it could cost around $0.54 per FPS at 4K. Compare this to Ultra 1440p, which is a more reasonable $0.32 per FPS.

The GeForce GTX 970 4GB along with the right system memory, 1GB, is very capable of getting top FPS results even at 4K Ultra graphics settings. We would recommend 4K as the way to go here. Especially if you have a Intel Core i7-4770K 4-Core 3.5GHz processor or better.

To summarise, this is an easy one, the GeForce GTX 970 4GB solution can play Tales of Monkey Island: Chapter 1 - Launch of the Screaming Narwhal at Ultra settings despite the desired screen resolution (up to 4K) you want to play it on. 4K Ultra gets 200+ frame rate, whereby we see 200+ frame rate for the 1440p Ultra and if you wish to look at 1080p gaming then 200+ frames per second is the type of results. Using the graphics card launch price we calculate the cost per frame to look like this for the different resolutions - 1080p Ultra costs $0.24, 1440p costs $0.32 and 4K costs $0.54.
