    Agreed - with that level of system likely to be a driver or temperature issue would be my guess. (My primary system is similar - i7-7700k, RTX2080, 32Gb RAM) and runs for hours on end no issues

    I don't overheat either if I play all day and I live in a warmer temperature climate too. If you are looking to upgrade then don't hesitate to ask for advice from this forum. We have great techys here ;) This is my system.

    If you are having a system built like i did I wouldn't get my case though since it is a total monster. It is huger than you can imagine but very roomy ;)

    People are playing this game on integrated graphics, and by all reports, a 150 USD card performs about as well as a 1000 USD card. My whole laptop cost 1k USD and I'm having no problem at all.

    Money won't solve your SotA woes if you already have a reasonable system.

    Perhaps SotA should replace Witcher 3 as the default benchmark for reviewers :D

    At any rate, computers are machines and can be fixed by diagnosis.

    Yeah let’s not let this become a pc bragging contest thread.

    I noticed no significant improvement between a GT 1030 and a GTX 1050Ti when I upgraded to put the 1030 into a small form factor case, playing at 1080p.

    I was running on 8gb of RAM, livestreaming and broadcasting over Avatars Radio while running the game on it's highest graphics setting. My load times sucked but the game loaded and ran acceptably.

    Something else is wrong/under-powered.
