A computer is a bunch of hardware parts that have to "fit" with each other (not only size-wise).

People usually think about video cards replacement without thinking of all the rest of the components.

The RAM (Random Access Memory), the CPU (Central Processing Unit), the motherboard (the board where you connect all hardware), the PSU (Power Supply Unit), the video card(s) (obviously!), the HDD(s)/SSD(s) (where you keep all programs), the sound card (most motherboard have them integrated nowadays), the heat control (fans and/or water/liquid cooling system)..., imperatively need to be compatible.

In my opinion you would be better to ask for information to a local technician (trustworthy would insure he/she's not selling you parts with dust and cobwebs from last century) with your PC or its specification, he/she'll be able to analyze your rig and direct you to reasonably priced components.

High performance in computers mean less video quality but better frame-rate.

Hope it help

Grab an app called Speccy.

It will tell you what you have in your system, then let us know what you have.

The GPU is ok, but you won't get stunning graphics for this game.

However a number of things can make the game lag or stutter..

Your Hard Drive needs to be defragmented to allow files to be sorted correctly.

Your CPU may be below spec.

And so on.

What kind of PC do you have and do you know what your power supply is?

I have an old Dell used for a HTPC and easily put in a HD7750 with the 350w crap power supply and crap generic MB. This does not however mean that I can just stick in a GTX 980.

How old is the machine, is it a gaming rig purchased with in one year or two years time or further back, if so might be time to consider upgrading and the GTX 980 Ti is overkill if you are just gaming, the GTX 970 is more than enough, the higher models above that is just a pure bragging rights thing 9 times out of 10 and not needed.

The main issue when going that high end version is people tend to forget their monitor if you upgrade to a GTX 980 Ti and such because that is the one you just must have, you will still loose out on it if you do not own a higher Hz monitor something like a 144Hz.
