I’m looking to replace my current Mid-2011 iMac soon with a newer, but probably not BRAND-new, iMac. My iMac becomes unhappy with SR2 when I set the graphics quality settings to high (like 10-15FPS). Playing with textures on low or off, image or visual effects off and terrain quality medium I get decent performance and can get 40-50fps and sometimes even 60fps. Physics I always keep set to high.
Anyone willing to share how SR2 performs on their configuration…?

Would doubling my memory from 16GB to 32GB on this current iMac make enough of a difference to make it worthwhile?

My current specs:
3.1Ghz Core i5
16GB 1333mhz DDR3
Radeon HD 6970M w/1GB
1TB HDD

thanks y’all

    @Tweedle_Aerospace where i live it is impossible to buy them at that price, to find one in stock it has to be at least $2000

    @sentinelaerospace gpu’s don’t cost that much. A very high quality one is 1,000 but most are 300-400

    @Tweedle_Aerospace prebuilt PC's are generally overpriced, even HP ones. though with prebuilt PC's you can actually get a graphics card for less than $3000

    Although I would like to get X Code so I can make local builds for iOS (it is complicated, look it up)

    (I am on a brand new HP so I can’t give input to newish iMacs. Personally they are too expensive for me.)

    You should easily be able to run on full high with those current specs. Even an old one. Age doesn’t actually matter. Heck there are old refurbished Dell computer from the 90’s that have an upgraded CPU and some extra memeory and Windows 10 and called brand new. Although I do know that Apple does put in intentional viruses that take effect gradually. But aren’t designed to make it unusable. But they do slow it down.
