Red Dead Redemption 2

You shouldn't pre-order it. Just buy it when it comes out and see if it runs well. If it doesn't, refund it. You probably wont have enough RAM though.

I want to pre-order rdr2 on PC, but i'm in doubt about how optimized it will be.

Will an i5-6400 with 8GB RAM and gtx1070ti 8gb manage to get playable fps without stutters ?

I know that the gpu is good enough, but Idk if my cpu and ram will hold up

especially the 8GB are tight, the cpu may hold up but not good.
see if you can get the 6700/7700 (k) for cheap, the latter if you find a bios update for your motherboard.

If they are too expensive, consider getting a 3600 and b450 motherboard

@19_blackie_73 @Cyberspirit @Praesi Thank you guys for the quick responses! Unfortunately I can't get more RAM or a new CPU now. But would my current specs manage to get atleast constant 30fps?

Im sure when you play around with the settings, you will get a good and playble Experience. Dont expect everything ultra tho.

I'm not that pretentious, I just want to enjoy the story without stutters... And thanks! 

Another little question, when I will upgrade my MO and RAMs, should add another 8 gb stick of 2133mHz or throw away that one and get 16GBs of an higher frequency? (my current MO didn't support more than 2133mHz, it's kinda crappy)

If you upgrade your MB, get higher clockspeed RAM. But make sure its exactly the same 2x8 GB and put therm in Slots 1+3 or 2+4.

I have almost the exact same specs as you except my 1070 is not a ti. Add 1 stick of 8GB 2133 RAM to your existing PC, customize the graphic settings in RDR2 and call it a day. Your motherboard is not crappy, it's just old. The stutters won't exist with 16GB of RAM, this I assure you. It's the best investment I've ever made on my PC. Provided you keep your CPU bottleneck down via the custom settings, your game-play won't stutter with 16GB of DDR4-2133 RAM. 30 fps will be a breeze to achieve. I'd even say you'll be able to achieve higher than 60. Only games like Assassins Creed Origins/Odyssey kill our i5's.

you said that you have a similar computer to mine. 

That's correct. Only difference is my 1070 is not a ti. My mobo even supports just 2133 RAM.

since i upgraded to the gtx 1070ti I feel like my fps boost is too low in some games (in ac i have the same fps like before but now i can play it on ultra quality)

This is because our i5's are bottlenecking our 1070's from achieving higher fps. Lower this ultra quality that you speak of and your CPU will thank you for it. The trick is to lower/turn off settings that either kill your fps or more importantly, hit CPU usage. A 1070 ti doesn't exactly allow you to play all games on ultra quality without a CPU capable of keeping up with it. A 1070 ti does however let you keep more individual graphic settings higher than say a gpu with 3-4GB of VRAM. As well as the use of high resolution texture packs in games like Middle Earth Shadow of Mordor/War or Monster Hunter World.

 

Which AC game are you playing? You may want to try my graphic settings if it's Origins.

Is getting another 8gbs of 2133 RAM gonna improve my performances? Is it worth it or should i wait for the upgrade to a new MO?

Definitely. It's for the most part going to rid your game play of any stuttering in games that require more than 8GB of RAM. It's beyond worth it imo. Zero regrets going to 16GB. I've wanted to upgrade my mobo in 2019 because I'm playing more high demanding games on a 1440p 144 Hz monitor, but until I'm not able to achieve 60-90 fps in more and more games, I'm sticking with what I got because I also play a LOT of games that aren't as graphically demanding in which I can achieve above and beyond 100-200 fps. There's only one game I own that I cannot achieve 60-90 fps in with my PC and that is Assassins Creed Origins. So you see, to upgrade my mobo and/or my cpu and/or my RAM speed just for that one game is not exactly something worth hundreds of dollars.

 

Another reason I might make the upgrade would be if my monitor was 4K, but it's not. I enjoy 1440p just as much as I enjoy 4K because of the higher refresh rate.

I would say that it runs,console port requirements are overstated.  I've played console game port fines on a laptop that didnt even meet the minimum requirement. 

 

If you can play other ps4 games or ports or your hardware is about equal or better than a PS4, then you should be able to play RDR 2 although you may have to turn down the settings

If the CPU can provide near or about 60fps easily but stutters chasing towards 80-100fps then set a FPS Cap to 60-70fps to reduce some flux, or turn down settings accordingly when guides for 'heavy settings come out.


Maximums - Asus Z97-K /w i5 4690 Bclk @106.9Mhz * x39 = 4.17Ghz, 8GB of 2600Mhz DDR3,.. Gigabyte GTX970 G1-Gaming @ 1550Mhz
