Do you think PCars2 will run with the same hardware I am using for PCars1?
Specs should be in my signature.

Other than the processor bump required because of LiveTrack 3.0. But I have a feeling the GTX 980 will still be fine for 1080p, even with the upcoming Coffee Lake (i7-8700K) that I'm intending to upgrade to from my Nehalem/Lynnfield i7-860 from 2010...

If you have your settings done correctly. PCARS2 might run even better than PC1 sometimes. (YMMV).

Check this video with the hardware used in the description. 60fps (with a couple of very small dips only) with an i5 and one AMD 7970. I'm guessing that your 960 might even be faster:

(video was taken with older hardware and an older build so performance and quality WILL be better at launch!)


My GTX 970m (laptop) with a mobile i7 4th gen (very similar to a desktop i5 in performance) was much faster than this video at the same graphics level.

At launch (this weekend! woohoo!) I'll be posting my personal recommended settings for different configs/scenarios. I've tested all the configs from i5+AMD7970 all the way to a Newer/faster I7+1080ti.

Do you think it makes sense to run this game with GTX 670?
