can i play gta V maxed out on a R9 295X2 ?

this might sound supid but i want to know if i could get 60+ Fps if i max out all the settings in gta 5 with R9295x2. the card can only use 4 gb vram even if it has 8gb that's why i'm posting this question.

  1. Yeah here are some benchmarks it should do near 60fps totally maxed out with 4x MSAA however I would recommend you turn down MSAA to 2x or just use FXAA. 4x MSAA in GTA V hits performance way too hard to justify it in my opinion. This is all assuming your cpu is up to the task as well.

  2. how about everything else fully maxed out accept for the resolution. i have a 1080p monitor so the resolution will stay at 1080P

    Around 60fps maybe a bit lower with 4x MSAA and everything in advanced graphics options maxed as well, your fps will depend on the area of the game you are in in the city and desert expect lower frames. Like I said I don't recommend you use 4x MSAA in gta v nobody does, its not worth it. Also extended distance scaling in the advanced graphics menu hits performance hard as well if you get frame dips adjust that. This is unassuming you are on a modern i5 or i7 cpu, GTA V likes its single thread performance and performs quite a bit better on modern intel cpu's than say an AMD FX CPU.
  4. i have a 6700K btw with 16Gb ram and i don't really need the graphics settings in advanced settings they don't really seem to make a difference in graphics but affect the performance hugely. BTW in gta 5 the Vram counter is it going to show 8Gb vram or 4Gb because i have R9 295x2 (i'm new to this whole crossfire thing.)

    It will probably show 8gb but only 4gb will be usable, I would pay no attention to that VRAM counter I have found it to be absolutely useless its way off. Use msi afterburner or something if you want to measure VRAM usage. Some of those features in the advanced graphics options do quite a bit, extended distance scaling for example stand on top of mountain somewhere and play with the slider I bet you will see a difference it will render things way out in the distance that normally wouldn't even be visible without it windmills for example you have to get quite close before the windmills will pop in without that feature, ity does however affect performance I wouldn't turn it completely off but I wouldn't max it out either.

    yeah i'd keep it somewhere in the middle anyways thanks for the help..
