Can I play shadow of mordor in 1080p high or even ultra settings and still
get 35 fps minimum and around 45 fps average?

I have a Gigabyte r9 270x 4gb version. Will the 4gb of Vram help?

My main build:
i5 4570
8gb ram
r9 270x 4gb
Samsung 840 evo 240Gb

I played through Shadow of Mordor with my 7870 (which is basically the same thing as a 270x, IIRC), and was able to get ~50fps on high-ish settings. It was a wee bit choppy, and the screen tearing was pretty bad without Vsync, but otherwise quite playable. (I enjoyed the game too much for those things to get in the way)

consider locking it to 30FPS and using vsync, specially if you play using a gamepad.

Sorry for the noob question but what is the difference between gamepad and mouse and keyboard
The game is playable with both input methods, but it was predominantly designed around a gamepad, and thus a gamepad is generally preferred for this game.

Also, if you turn on Vsync and cap the framerate to 30fps (which might not seem like much, but at least it will be consistent on a 270x), using a gamepad will make that kind of framerate more bearable.

I'd have to say no. I have a 270X however it's a i3 something broadridge and I can't go 1080P on high settings. Have to do 720P and then it's playable.

high textures hurt the performance quite bad with my 7870 2GB. The choppiness was damn too annoying so I uninstalled.
I will not play games on my PC with settings lower than the consoles!
