When it comes to the minimum required configuration, one would require either an Intel Core i5-2400 or and AMD FX-6300 or equivalent processor to run Far Cry 5. In addition, either a Nvidia GTX 670 or AMD R9 270 graphics card is required to run the game smoothly at 720p resolution. Besides that, a minimum of 8GB RAM is also needed.
Moving one step above, to run Far Cry 5 at high graphics preset, one’s system would require either an Intel Core i7-4770 or an AMD Ryzen 5 1600 processor, along with 8GB RAM. Graphics-wise, Far Cry 5 will run relatively smoothly at 1080p with either a Nvidia GTX 970 or AMD R9 290X. Ubisoft has mentioned that these settings will most likely allow one’s system to run the game at 60fps.
