If you had to suggest a video card for Simcity 5 what would you suggest at least to be able to play on all detail settings at Ultra and Maximum ?

Its not Simcity 5, its simply Simcity.

I played the 1 hour beta, same with my gf. And even in 2560*1440 with everything maxed I didnt have any issues with my GTX680. But on the other hand, it might change as you can build more and more.

But no clue what the lower boundries are.

The beta was not hard on the GPU at all. My 7970(1170/1500@1920x1200) was never at more than 60% load at max. But the full version will probably tax the game higher as the city gets larger with bigger buildings and maybe have better GFX options. But I guess a 7850 or 660 would be fine for 1080p
