  1. It should do fine with the settings turned to low and off the RX 550 is not really a gaming card.

  2. Really? Only low settings? Even though minimum requirements for overwatch is gtx 460 or he 4850 and the Rx 550 is a 220% improvement over those cards?

  3. Not a clue where your getting your numbers min is min. You did say competive and that means keeping the FPS playable.

  5. All the reviews I've seen out the Rx 550 2gb over the gt 460 1gb by 100% or more and I've seen it over the he 4850 by 200% or more on different sites and in videos. So how is a modern gpu with 2gb vram going to perform worse than a 7 year old gpu with 1gb? I'm confused

  6. And your second post is 660 not 460 or he 4850

  7. The 660 is what is recomended for 60 FPS on medium settings and is 33 % better than the RX 550 so just as I said low settings to keep the FPS up
    The mim 460 is to run the game with 30 FPS not really good for competitive play.

    I never said the RX 550 was a lesser card than the 460 in fact by this it's about 30% better but nothing even close to the 200% you stated.
    http://gpu.userbenchmark.com/Compare/Nvidia-GTX-460-vs-AMD-RX-550/2167vs3925
    That is exactually why I said on low and off settings since its not really a gaming card and is 33% worse than the recomended gtx 660 for mid settings and 60 FPS.
    If you dont like a honest answer then dont ask the question.

  8. Found this showing the Rx playing at 80-100 fps with a Pentium g not even an i5. Thanks for the solid info though
