GTX 560 Ti works fine on 2560x1600. I can't max things out by any means but I get by rather easily.

For short term, the 660 listed above would be your best bet.

I tried that Bose, and its a defo a no go on my current GFX setup, 9-12 fps all low setting, hence why I haven't purchased the Early Release version....

PMD9409, Tyrone Johnson, Matrixi, wildstyle, thank you all for your advice, I will see if any of these are available on ebay.

I suspect I will need a major PC upgrade in 18months - 2yrs, so just wanted something to tie me over in the mean time

I would be excited myself had the Fanatec decided not to go apeshit and stopped working properly!
Wildstyle and Matrix....I am Married with kids, so there is a budget here, you made me laugh I was looking for the Min to get me by so to speak, not re-mortgage the house to improve my FPS HA HA HA

PMD over £130 for a gfx card to get me by, seriously.....there must be something cheaper that will work with AC...as a standard FPS rate?

Sorry for the questions, I am just so out of touch now with Overclocking / GFX cards etc etc

Cheers

I have had an HD7770, which is def good enough to play AC at a decent fps rate.
my GTX650 GS 1GB does fine with the game, although my other specs are a lot better than my GFX, but I recently purchased this too, and it handles the game well.

If you're not willing to put in £130 (under £100 used) for a GPU I'd say don't bother at all until you upgrade the whole rig. Then again, that GTX 660 would serve you fine even if you upgraded the rest and kept that GPU for the new machine.

Sure there's stuff like the GTX 750 which is a few tenners cheaper, but just look at how much (theoretical) performance you lose: http://www.hwcompare.com/17116 ... x-660-vs-geforce-gtx-750/

You can get by with this and this, but you probably won't be impressed with the FPS.

Things progress, and in order to keep up you will have to spend a pretty penny at times.

EDIT: And +1 again to the above.

WOW thanks for that Matrixi, that is a big difference, see what you mean
go for 660, i have MSI 650TI boost OC who are theoretically the same perf as 660 and AC work just great.
if you can find a 7870 with the same price its also good!
you will see some serious fps drop with full grid AI because of your old cpu, but I read somewhere that multiplayer are GPU dependent.

Btw can't wait to test update today .
Anyone has issues with steam?
Yeah, it won't work.
wouldnt log in for me for ages..then it just worked.
I've unplugged the router power cable and put it back in, works now.
What are you? Some kind of IT specialist?
Srsly, when is that patch coming... I can't wait already to see if I have to wait 2 more weeks for multiplayer...
Don't hold your breath, dude.....
This waiting is pain, haha
Guys really, the patch is normally here after 16:00 gmt. Whats with the short term memory loss and 13yo fapping level?
