At 1920x1200 we were unable to achieve an average of 60fps on any of the GPUs tested, with the GTX 980 coming closest with an average of 59fps, 5% faster than the R9 290X.
We wouldn't want to play with less than 30fps which will require folks with a HD 7870/R9 270 or GTX 660 to reduce the game's quality settings. For the bare minimum 30fps on ultra, you'll need a GTX 660 Ti, GTX 760 or R9 270X/HD 7950.
