Rise of the Tomb Raider looks and plays better on PC, but budget gaming rigs won’t cut it

""While the PC port is capable of outperforming the Xbox One original, don’t expect a budget gaming PC to hit 60fps on high settings. The game’s minimum requirements list a Core i3-2100, 6GB of RAM, and a 2GB GTX 650, but the fidelity will suffer substantially if that’s all you’ve got. If you want to run the high settings, you’re going to need a graphics card with at least 3GB of memory. Very high? Invest in a 4GB card. Square-Enix recommends using a GTX 970, but Digital Foundry says a GTX 960 will be able to deliver a 1080p30 experience superior to the Xbox One version.

Of course, hitting 1080p60 requires a bit more horsepower. A GTX 970 can deliver 60fps, but it drops some frames in the village area. If that bothers you, turning off tessellation will solve the problem. Even if you don’t have top of the line hardware, you can make some sacrifices in the name of frame rate. Like any good PC game, this port allows you to switch most effects on and off at will, so you can decide exactly which features you can live without.""
