Graphic cards for Apex

Do I really need to buy an nearly obsolete R9 290 to play Apex Beta?
For half the price the new RX 480 outperforms the R9 290.
Will Apex run on a system with a 8Gb RX 480?

Is this a joke post?
If you buy a newer more capable graphics card of course it will work. It’ll even work better.
Now mind you don’t get it wet in the stream under that bridge…

Known GPUs (discrete or integrated) that are supported by Forza 6 Apex:
AMD R9 or later (R9 280 or later)
NVidia GT/GTX 75x or later
Intel HD 4xxx and later (with Intel graphics driver 4444 or later)

QUIRK: With Intel graphics driver 4444 and later, the game will NOT install on Windows 10 Insider builds in the Redstone series; however, the game will install on Windows 10 build 1511 with the same or later drivers; this is something I have personally experienced. Workaround is to install Windows 10 15 (RTW Threshold), then re-update to your current Redstone build after installing Forza 6 Apex/Forza Hub/etc.

Im playing on my laptop it has nvidia gtx 965m i7 6700 hq 2.6 ghz and 12 g ram, the game plays well. Im gonna try it on my desktop when i get home.
