    You could probably get 60 fps with an AMD APU haha.
  3. I heard the shaders can take quite a bit, wasn't sure.

    With Sonic Ether's Shaders? Damn, I thought it was a bit tougher to run.

    Hmm, that I don't know about. You very well could be right. But that setup would be able to play any newly released game on ultra settings at 40-50 fps. That is a very powerful gaming setup. I would suggest trying watchdogs with that rig.
