    The PSO2 graphics update should still need far lower specs than NGS at its best, after all the areas are far smaller on PSO2, areas and enemy models are not getting increased polygon counts, and such.

    NGS, the CBT specs are said to not be finalized and that they will be different for the release version, but I wouldn't expect them to be much lower than currently. Still, based on footage from the first CBT, NGS still looks good on medium.

    Yeah, I've seen some settings comparisons from the CBT and medium does still look good, it's just my reptile brain wanting the shiniest of graphics.

    Yeah, I know that feeling, I've been tempted to upgrade my graphics card because of NGS, but between the current cards market being completely terrible and this generation of cards having higher power consumption than what I would like, I'm staying with what I have (my current card, GTX 1660 Ti, should be enough for tier 4, maybe 5 at 1080p if the requirements don't get much lower than the CBT, I think).

    I originally planned on upgrading in the next generation of cards anyway, it was just NGS that was making me tempted to upgrade sooner (but since it's not possible, I'm back to my original plan). xD

    I still have a GTX970 and an FX-8350, so I have been looking to upgrade for while (I have some money squirreled away for a rebuild), but yeah, the GPU market has held me back on pulling the trigger. Here's hoping with Nvidia's efforts to create two separate lines of GPUs for gaming and mining gets prices reasonable again for the next gen.

    Hmm, the GTX 970 should still be fine for medium-ish settings or so, it's a slightly worse GPU than the GTX 1060, which is the recommended for the CBT medium.

    The CPU though is very outdated nowadays, I have no idea how well it'll handle NGS at all. The CPU market atm seems to be fine, so if possible that's where I would start upgrading (CPU/motherboard/RAM).

    For now, I'm just going to hold off until NGS actually releases to see how it goes (I would prefer to do my build all at once, so I can just stick a new HDD in the old one for other uses), but I may have to go that route if it ends up being too taxing on the CPU. I have a newer laptop that I should be able to play on if I do need to upgrade (i5-10300H and GTX1660-Ti Max-Q, roughly equivalent to the medium setting requirements, though probably better to go on low).

    Ah, that laptop is likely to hold up better, yeah.

    I kinda also hope I don't ave to upgrade my cpu, that would be silly.
    I upgraded to GeForce 1060 with 6GB and 16GB ram a couple of years ago for near 500 bucks total and I'd rather keep on like this and get an entire new pc than keep upgrading the parts needed for games while the rest gets older and older (motherboard, cables, physical ports, etc.).
    But since I spent so much on the upgrade already I wanna keep going like for another couple years or so as I don't play anything graphics intensive other than PSO2 and when it comes out NGS anyway.

    This will come at a surprise, but you do not have to play a game with every setting set to max and added shaders on top of it to enjoy it.

    What's your CPU btw?
    Note that CPUs that support AVX are required for PSO2 starting with the graphics update, so CPUs released before 2011 and Intel CPUs below the Core i3 line (Pentium and Celeron CPUs) won't be able to run PSO2 at all starting next update.
