    Use this list to gauge where a GPU stands in comparison to other cards on the market.

    All in all, your card is on the lower end of the performance spectrum. I upgraded from a GTX 960 (ranked 44 on the list) to a GTX 1060 (ranked 14) and the difference in frame rate at 1080p is substantial and very noticeable. The card you listed is ranked 142, so you'd see a huge bump in performance if you were to upgrade to even the 3GB version of the 1060. Those can be bought for < than $200 on a fairly regular basis.

      Thanks VV. That's what I was afraid of. Also, I project to a 4k tv, does that matter?

    Are you trying to play the game in 4K resolution? I wouldn't imagine you are because the game would be unplayable with your current card if you had the graphics settings at 4K. If you're wanting to play in true 4K or plan for the future, you'd need the GTX 1080 to get even a decent frame rate at 4K resolution. If you're playing the game at 1080p resolution in your settings, then the tv will let it play at 1080p or will upscale it. Either way, the 1060 would handle that easily.

      You're right, resolution set at 1080p. It does well, gets choppy on putting some. Thanks again.

  • Hi, I am about to pull the plug and order a gaming PC. I am doubting whether to save a bit of money and go for an i5 7500 3.4 or an i7 6700 3.4.

    Any noticeable difference?

    Video card should be OK (GTC 1060 6 GB) I believe

    Also, do I need to buy SSD (I will use the pc probably only to run TGC)?

    thnx!

    • You honestly don't need much of a processor. I use a 8yr old i5, forget the model, and run it alongside a GT 970 for my Sim. Runs awesome on max (High) settings. I have another PC running it inside where I do my course creation work and that one has an i7 6700K and a 1060 6GB and its virtually identical in performance. The 1060 pushes about 70-75FPS while the 970 is around 60-65 FPS. Both systems never experience any noticeable slow down on the courses I've played. I do have both running on an SSD which I'm a huge fan of. Mostly, because the insane bootup speeds of SSD....especially if you don't have anything else on the system. My Sim PC boots in about 6sec. My advice...get the i5, and buy a 128GB SSD....Samsung 840/850 Pro if you can still find one. Otherwise the new Pro will be fine.

        • Hi,

          I'm about to order the R-motion wich comes with the TGC. But I want to test my garage setup before ordering a new Gaming PC. Do you think TGC will even launch on my laptop? It's an HP Elitebook 840 G2, intel core i7-5500U 2.40GHz, 8GB ram, Windows 7 64bit, intel graphics HD5500.

            You can try. It might run at a very low resolution in low quality. The HD5500 is about 600% slower then the minimum card recommended.

            Thanks ProTee United for the response. Thats a lot slower! I think I'll try to borrow a better computer then.

        • I am now upgrading my PC for new installation based on SkyTrak .
          From info in the forum I understood that TGC will have new Version TGC2 at the beginning next year.
          Has anyone idea what demand for PC will have new software?
          As a graphic card I selected GTX 1060 with 6GB Memory - I hope that it should be good enough for new software next year.
          I just want to avoid situation that next year after update of TGC to TGC2 I will face problem again with my PC.

          • I thought my CAD class desktop from 4 years ago would work, it even shows Direct 3d 11.1, but still getting the error in TGC. So I'm going to piece together a new computer based on the video card I just bought. Geforce GTX 1050 Ti 4GB.
