PC System Analysis For Rust Requirements
Your PC will need a graphics card thats as powerful as a GeForce GTX 980 4GB/Radeon R9 FURY 4GB and it should be paired with either a FX-8300/Core i5-4430 3.0GHz CPU to match the Rust recommended system specs. This PC setup will deliver 60 Frames Per Second on High graphics settings on 1080p monitor resolution. 16 GB will also be needed to achieve the Rust rec specs and get 60FPS. You should also have 8 GB system memory for min specs. We suggest a 7 year old PC to play smoothly.
