Can I play Tomb Raider on MAX settings with this system?

#1dudupupuPosted 6/13/2014 1:33:18 PM
GPU: 2GB GTX 750Ti
CPU: AMD Phenom II X4 945
RAM: 8GB

I know I'm becoming annoying with my new system questions, but I want to gauge how powerful it is since I've been out of the loop for so long and there's all these gaming deals.

My next question would be:

Why are there more robust GPUs? From my understanding, I picked up a budget card at the recommendation of some GF users and yet it can play everything on MAX is what I'm gathering.

Just because you can max most things you think there's no point in more powerful cards? Different cards do different things. I have the 780ti and it's MUCH more powerful than the 750ti. I usually won't even use its full potential but it allows me to tweak games to my liking, such as having lush, beautiful grass in Skyrim and further load distances. Then you have the titan series and those are amazing for rendering videos

you can but tressfx will probably bring it down below 30 fps.

I didn't say it was pointless; I was just asking, because I'm genuinely ignorant about PC stuff.

The last time I tried to get into it was when I paid like $250 for a 8800GT card.

Ah, well yeah. The point of them is essentially customization through third party means for games. Or tweaking ini files. And then with the titans, the Titan Black (which is getting a price drop soon) is the most useful right now because it has the same in game capabilities of a 780ti but it also has amazing video rendering usage.

Not max, but pretty well up there. You wont be able to use tress fx and for AA, if you stick to the FXAA you'll be fine.

This.

Also, you should get a significant fps boost if you turn off post-processing. The game will look less good though.

No, but you can run it at decent settings.

Source: I have a very similar rig but with a 580. I turn only a handful of settings down to get 60 FPS.
