    Hello all, I have few questions.

    1) Ideal size of VRAM (memory on graphic card) for 1600x900 and 1920x1080 resolution? For modest player - middle setting and 40-80 fps. Are 2GB VRAM too bad? Is difference between 2GB and 3GB huge?

    2) Please, some CURRENT experiences with playing on AMD FX Piledriver CPUs (FX-4300, FX-6300, FX-8300). It was quiet bad in past, but codes is more optimised now. World of Tanks was badly playable before 8 years, but now is really OK even without overclocking.

    Thank you in advance.

    well anything below 4 gigs of vram is basically useless in 2021, but you could probably get away with it. As for the cpus... yeah have fun that’s also probably not gonna run great though I don’t have personal experience.

    I have a GTX 1650 with 4 gigs of vram and I can run most games pretty good. As for your second question, I have no experience with AMD so I can't help, sorry.

    That's pretty low. I don't think you're going to get great performance here.
    This game likes cores and threads. FX CPUs do not have many cores nor threads.

    I know, but 1600x900 resolution is low too.

    FX 8XXX CPUs have 8 threads, somebody is playing this game on Ivy Bridge 4 cores/4 threads with low frequency in notebook - 2GHz.

    I have a gt710 2gb ddr5, getting an intel i5 4460 soon, should be here mid May, 4gb of ram is enough for the smaller maps, at low/medium upto around 40fps to 50fps at 1600x900, I don't have a 1080p screen. (Also, 900p ain't bad.)if you want to go multiplayer or many ai cars and stuff, then yeah it will bog down.
