This is a good question ...

I recently bought a new PC and "aimed high" ...
You can find more info about it in this thread ... viewtopic.php?f=834&t=94933
(Some where, in the middle of page 2, you can see what I ended up with.)

If you click the spoiler button, in my signature, you can see the benchmark score I am getting with it.
However ... the benchmark is with the "default settings" ...
Never the less ... with this rig, I am playing with everything on max and I have basically NO framedrops, what so ever, on the stock maps ... and it seems to be working just as awesome on the modded maps I have tried so far.

It costed me around 2350 USD ... some weeks ago.

I recommend a AMD Radeon RX 470. I will be getting one for $200 and @Stegei told me that his RX 480 (which is a tiny bit better) performs FS17 on Very High. Just check my specs as well and to give you an idea. :wink3: My computer costed me $100 without the 750 Ti, but that's because it is Windows Vista old. :lol:

For modded maps: MidWest Family Farm, American Heat Land, Hard Workin' 3, Stevie's maps, Idaho, and a lot of others that I can't think of that I play. Right now, I am playing on my Sosnovka farm that I have had since its release. Stevie's maps require a pretty good powered GPU. Hard Workin' 3 you need better than a GTX 750 Ti to be able to play on High.
