What are your PC Specs?, Are you planning to upgrade soon?

You can have that and still have oc, when you oc rightly you don't have unstability and with that cooler you will still have a silent pc.. but suit yourself.

 

at 1440p i doubt he would see any improvement from overclocking at all, the "bottleneck" are the 3.5GB VRAM, if you call it that

 

Well said. Yet in GTAV, a 970 manages quite well with the last 512 mb of VRAM running at a slow clock rate. Give me 2 1080's to mount in SLI and I'd still have to leave certain game settings on "Normal" It's just the nature of the game.

Dock

Currently I'm playing in [email protected] with V-Sync on half, grass on normal (IMO this setting doesn't add anything useful, and just wastes FPS), FXAA, and frame scaling on 2/1.

Grass is definitely an FPS killer but the amount of foliage it adds is a lot of eye candy that is easily noticeable when disabled.

 

I've generally seen a maximum of Very High setting to be apt, ultra seems a bit redundant unless you have the extra horsepower to bother running it (which I'd like to think you have with a 1080 that you're using to to play at 1080p + 2/1 Frame Scaling). The normal setting makes the country side look extremely unfinished imo :p

Monitor: Asus VG278HE 27" 1920x1080 144 Hz

 

Cabinet: Cooler Master HAF 912 Black

 

Yeah, sure, i want to change PC, keeping the HDD and possibly the cabinet (and the monitor).

 

I have the budget (1800 euro), i'm just not sure what i should buy.

 

Probably a Ryzen 1700, a B350 Motherboard, at least 16 GB of RAM, a GTX 1080 ti (or a RX Vega) and then enjoy it? :lol:

 

Yeah, i know, you probably think a GTX 1080 ti is overkill in FullHD, but not so much if it have to push 144 fps at high/ultra settings, right? :monocle:

CPU: AMD FX-4300

GPU: Nvidia GTX 1050 2gb OC

Ram: 8gb 2133mhz ddr3

PSU: 550 watt

 

Run 45-60fps with low textures and everything else except for grass on high. Looks 10x better then xbox one. Thats for sure. Sometimes it dips to 38fps but that is the absolute lowest and doesnt stay their for long at all.

 

Going to upgrade maybe to 8700k when it comes out(depending on benchmarks). I want gtx 1080 ti ftw3 and a dell 2550x1440 165hz gsync monitor very soon.

Bought an AMD FX-8350 @ 4.0Ghz to replace my AMD FX-6300 @ 3.5Ghz and bought a new cooling fan for it 2 weeks ago. They arrived in the mail a week ago but I haven't installed the chip and fan yet, but I'm sure it'll give a small performance increase. :happy:

 

At least 30 percent better is what I expect. I need a GPU upgrade from this GTX 1050Ti again. The GTX 1070 I have my eye on. But sadly, I'll have to upgrade my PSU for a 1070.

Seems good, keep in mind you only need a 500w power supply for that card, as long as it's not generic.

I upgraded my computer recently. It's not the most powerful rig in the world but it gets the job done.

 

CPU: Intel i7-3770K @ 3.50Ghz, cooler is an aftermarket Cooler Master HYPER TX3 EVO

GPU: MSI GeForce GTX 1070 ARMOR OC 8192 MB

RAM: 16GB Dual-Channel DDR3

 

Maxes out GTA V and I still get screen tearing without vsync.

Good build, and of course you will get tearing, it's not that it only occurs when you get less than 60 fps, it can happen above it too! the only solution is to have v sync on always, either that or get a g sync display since you have an nvidia card.

I get screen tearing because my fps is higher than my monitor's refresh rate. I have to keep vsync disabled though because the game suffers these strange slowdowns if I have it on. Like the fps doesn't actually drop, it feels like the entire game just slows down for half a second sometimes.

That happens when you get lower than 60 fps, then v sync makes it look like it went to 30 fps, because of the way it works, only way to fix that is with a g sync monitor, or lower the graphics until you NEVER get less than 60 fps, then you'll get a solid experience.

G-sync doesnt work well with lower frames

I didn't meant that it will fix everything, but it will be a lot better, and if he sets the graphics in a way that he doesn't drop outside the range of g sync, it's of course the best solution.

I'll just deal with the occasional screen tearing. It's not a huge problem and not all that visible either. And I just got a PC capable of maxing the game out, I really don't feel like bumping the graphics down anymore :p

 

Maybe I'll get a new monitor when I have the cash, my current one is pretty old.

subjective, what is the max? 4k ? 8k?

 

you are getting more fps then your monitor refresh speed, every time its going to refresh its picking up several frames that is the screen tearing.

a 144hz refresh rate monitor would fix that, or bumping the graphics to a higher resolution so you cant output more then your monitor refresh rate

Maximum graphical settings is what I consider maxing out the game. I don't really care about resolution that much, I'm playing on a 1080p monitor and it's totally enough for me. If I can muster up the cash I might get a bigger monitor and that would probably limit my frames to the point where I might not need vsync anymore. That's something for the future though.

Gigabyte 970 Gaming

AMD FX8370 8 Core @ 4.2 Ghz (Stock cooling, No OC)

16GB DDR3 # 1333Mhz

Sapphire Radeon R9 290 3GB

256GB AData SSD

Thermatake 600W PSU

Philips 43" UHD (4K) and Philips 23" 1080p (16x9) and Benq 1680x1050 (16x10) monitors.

 

@1080P can run at 50-60 fps (smooth enough for my 47 year old eyes) with just about everything in Graphics maxed and several advanced graphics settings enabled.

Turning MSAA to 8x or High Res Shadows on will both exceed my GPU VRAM and cut my frame rate in half.

 

@2160 4K, the same settings will give me 30 fps and again, MSAA and/or High Res Shadows put me down to 10-20 fps (unplayable)

 

In all resolutions scenarios, I get a significant 40-50% FPS drop at dawn and dusk (or pre-dawn and pre-dusk) for a few minutes when shadows are longest - with grass on ultra, that's probably to be expected.

 

When GTAV PC came out I was still using AMD PhenomII and AMD 5770 which have been gradually upgraded.

I'm an AMD guy so next upgrade will probably be an RXVega then a Ryzen.

You should disable advanced graphics, plus lower the 3 bars in pop density and drawing distance, to avoid any cpu bottleneck.

No, I should play at the maximum settings I can that give me a playable (for me) framerate, and don't threaten to set my chips on fire, which is precisely what I do.
Turning on high res shadows and any more than 2xMSAA is only done for photography purposes :)
I've only just got the UHD monitor so didn't really expect my R9 290 to be able to give me a good experience at 4K resolutions, but even at 30 fps, I manage to play OK @ 4K.
Other games I play at 4K (e.g. No Mans Sky) are unplayable without lowering most settings to medium, so in some respects I'm actually quite impressed by GTAV's 4K performance.
But thanks for your opinion.

4k will look better then any 4x or 8x Msaa, and there is no other that can impact game performance as resolution

Well that's just wrong. Graphical detail is much more than the size at which it's being rendered at. I mean there's a lot of things that affect how the game looks that are not resolution based like lighting and particle effects and such. I don't think I'm missing any detail by running the game at 1080p as opposed to 2k or 4k. Sure bigger resolution is better, but rendering graphics at a higher resolution is not going to add additional detail.

 

I would definitely like to have a larger monitor, but I really don't feel like I'm missing that much at 1080p to be perfectly honest.

The cpu definitely, then you can go for a 1070. A 1060 wouldn't be worth it because it's pretty close to your current card.

The 7700k is the top of the line for games, with any i7 you will be fine, the 7700k is for a 1080ti or if you want to forget about upgrading the cpu in at least 6 years.

dont buy the 7700k, not at this point, you either wait until october for the 8700k and get a 15% better cpu with 2 more cores/4 more threads, at the same price the 7700k is now or just wait for that time so the 7700k drops the price
