It’s not every day one of the world’s biggest video game studios releases a brand new IP. Small wonder, then, that Blizzard’s Overwatch, a squad-based online multiplayer first-person shooter now available on PC, is generating so much excitement.

Thanks to a lengthy closed beta and open beta, Overwatch has already garnered huge amounts of effusive praise among existing players. Now that the game has officially released, the following guide will make sure your hardware will deliver the best possible performance.

Is my gaming rig up to the job?

For a game on the scale of Overwatch, it’s surprising to learn that the minimum hardware requirements to run the game are not particularly high.

Minimum System Specifications

OS: Windows 7/8/10 64-bit

Processor: Intel Core i3 or equivalent

Memory: 4GB RAM

Hard Drive: 5GB space on a 7,200 RPM drive, or better

Graphics: GeForce GTX 460

The Result: 4GB RAM and a GTX 460 is a pretty modest ask. With a rig like that you’ll be able to enjoy it at a resolution of 1280×720, albeit on the lowest detail settings, but at a solid 30fps.

Recommended System Specifications

Processor: Intel Core i5 or equivalent

Memory: 6GB RAM

Graphics: GeForce GTX 660 with 2GB VRAM

The result: With a GTX 660 and a little more RAM, you can expect to see the graphics setting jump up to medium, the resolution at 1280×720, and all running at a solid 60fps.

While the GPUs listed in the specs above are no longer available to purchase, you can still invest in a new rig or upgrade, and the best bet is a 900 series GTX card. By doing so, you can experience Overwatch in various shades of brilliance. To help you choose, here’s what NVIDIA’s high-end GPUs have to offer Overwatch players.
GeForce GTX 950

Resolution: 1920×1080

Detail level: Medium

Frame rate: 60fps

The upshot: This provides a significant leap in resolution from the minimum and recommended specs, and, of course, the freedom to play around with the settings.

GeForce GTX 970

Resolution: 2560×1440

Detail level: High

Frame rate: 60fps

The upshot: The GTX 970 gives you another jump in resolution, high detail settings, and a high frame rate. This is the gold standard for the Overwatch experience just below the GTX 980 Ti.

GeForce GTX 980 Ti

Resolution: 3840×2160

Detail level: High

Frame rate: 60fps

The upshot: This is where things get interesting. Invest in a 980Ti and a 4K monitor and you will be able to enjoy Overwatch maxed out and in glorious ultra high-definition. 4K gaming places substantial demands on your hardware, so nothing less than a GTX 980Ti will cut it.

And if you’re looking to really get the best possible visual fidelity in the game, NVIDIA’s recently unveiled next-generation GPU powerhouse, the GeForce GTX 1080, delivers up to 3x the performance of previous generation graphics cards.

GeForce Experience

Anyone with a GeForce equipped rig will have certain advantages over other Overwatch players. For example, players are automatically alerted to new driver releases, which means everything is always up to date. NVIDIA’s cloud datacenter provides settings tailored precisely to your PC at the click of a button. You can even tweak the settings yourself using a slider so that you can easily manage the direct trade-off between frame rate and graphical detail.

NVIDIA also works closely with developers to enhance their games using the various technologies incorporated into GTX 900 series GPUs. These technologies include Dynamic Super Resolution, which compresses a higher resolution image onto a lower resolution monitor. Developers take advantage of graphics tools like HBAO+, NVIDIA’s superior ambient occlusion system that delivers more realistic shadow effects thus improving the authenticity of gaming environments.

NVIDIA’s new GeForce Game Ready 368.22 WHQL drivers are also specifically optimized for Overwatch, and enable you to enjoy a smooth and SLI-enabled experience crucial for the game’s fast-paced multiplayer matches. To download and install, simply launch GeForce Experience and click the “Drivers” tab.

Undoubtedly, one of the most beneficial technologies for many Overwatch players will be G-Sync. Due to the legacy of old monitor technology, there is often a mismatch between what the PC GPU is attempting to display and what the monitor is capable of displaying. This poor communication leads to tearing where fragments of several frames are displayed at once; it’s both distracting and a strain on the eyes.

However, if you have both a G-Sync equipped monitor and a GTX powered rig, the two are able to communicate, virtually eliminating tearing, stuttering, and lag. What G-Sync means for Overwatch gamers is that they get the smoothest, most responsive experience possible.
