Ok I'll keep an eye on temps. When I went to buy the 290x I wanted a demonstration. The guy launched some FPS (forget which one) at max everything and after 10 minutes the 290x still hadn't broken a sweat, temps were still 50-60 and fan speed was 25%. That's when I suggested downloading furmark to stress the GPU.

It heavily depends on the game. GTA V is what gets mine to 75c. It seems to be the only game I have that pushes it that high.

780 is roughly the same as 970 right? I am guessing at 1920x1980.

So if you're running 2560 or more, best to upgrade asap.

Lol I was like "are my 270's really that sad". Knew something had to be off.

As to the gaming requirements of GTA V.... GTA V requires a 2 year old laptop without a keyboard... lol.

You're not going to be running it at 60fps 1080p maxed out on a 2 year old laptop that isn't a desktop replacement. Bethesda's recommended requirements tend to lean towards rigs that can do that whereas R*s tend to lean more towards what you actually want for a reasonable gameplay experience at all.

GPUs are perfectly fine albeit have a shortened lifespan at 90+c. The issue is that VRMs are usually 10-20c higher than GPU temps and they aren't fine/are at their thermal limits at 110+c.

I am very on the fence about this game. While I know most requirements are inflated I am hesitant to preorder it on GMG without knowing just how realistic they are. I have a 7950 and its starting to show its age, With a 7870 being minimum I question just how good and how smooth the game with play at 1080p for me.

Really wish more devs would release benchmark tools before their games come out.

7950 is roughly equal to a 670, and a 960 isn't a whole lot faster than the 670. I think you'll be fine at 1080p.

Most likely the recommendation for the 780 is because of the 3GB memory.
If at medium settings the game requires a lot of memory from the card, a strong but low memory card will have performance issues because of constant paging.

Even though the 280x also has 3GB memory, the 780 out performs it in most cases that I have seen. And the 770 only has 2GB. So most likely their lowest performance point for average settings to keep good performance and high image quality requirements, might still be correct. So I don't see it farfetched like some claim.
They are also not looking at OCed performance but at base stock performance, as well as "what is the oldest for good performance" for people who do not upgrade every year (or even 2).

CPU wise, if the game requires a lot of CPU overhead or for a change, actually support multi core well enough, a 4/8 cpu might be understandable as recommended.

People keep forgetting that "recommended" most likely means medium settings or high with some features reduced, not ultra settings with everything turned on. It is like when people activated crysis with max full on settings on their mid range card and yelled how bad the game is, how not optimises, how and how and how, because they refuse to reduce settings instead of buying better hardware.

Not really. The minimum is for mid-range 5 year old hardware and the recommended is high-end (almost) 3 year old hardware.

If we look at Skyrim (another Bethesda game), the minimum is for a C2D and 7600GT or X1800. Then, at the time 5 year old hardware for minimum. The recommended requirements is for a C2Q and GTX 260 or HD4890. Then, at the time 3 year old high-end hardware.

Times change, hardware gets more powerful. Upgrade or get left behind.

I'd be over the moon if the game actually took advantage of heavily threaded processors like the 9590 and 4790k/6700k, but I won't be holding my breath. I wonder what is taking so much vram... is draw distance finally not garbage?
