  1. *Sorry for necro* I've got a 780 Ti and I was wondering has anyone tried out the latest drivers with the 7xx series? I noticed a halving in performance going from the GTA V drivers to the Witcher 3 drivers and I'm wondering if the problem has been fixed or are people just not raising their turnips to sort Nvidia's shit out.
  2. This would likely expose the super shady developers. As I guarantee you the second any developer places a ban for a shady reason on someone, you're going to see it everywhere, and that developer will be no more.
  3. Exactly, and the developer would die in a fire almost instantly the second any word got out that they were doing some dodgy things.
  4. And that's their loss. If they pull shit, they get destroyed. Which in this situation is completely fair. It would actual do a natural selection thing of sorts, destroying the bad developers and keeping the good clean developers in business. And would probably discourage developers from carrying out such an act by seeing the consequences.
  5. The game critic then could easily publicize the false ban and completely destroy the company that was doing the false retaliation. The developers would have much more to lose from falsely banning someone from their game for that reason, as it does not stop them from telling everyone else in other places about the wrong doings. Which would spread like wildfire.
  6. https://support.steampowered.com/kb_article.php?ref=7849-Radz-6869 You should have added some clarification for the 'If you are VAC banned you are vac banned in all games that support VAC' As that isn't completely true. But on the actual topic I do think this implementation is a good idea. Yes, there will be developers who will exploit it and I'm sure Valve will deal with them quickly and swiftly if things begin to get out of hand. Games like Payday 2 are riddled with cheaters and up to now there hasn't been much in the way of counteracting those cheaters, they have implemented some
  7. My performance would probably die if I was to try that.
  8. I'm using 3 monitors, but not ingame. The game only runs on 1 monitor, I find the other two way too useful for use as game screens.
  9. and you have a 9590 and SLI 780 Ti's. What are you trying to say? I can put them all on max, I don't know how much of a performance defecit it will have.
  10. I don't only play games. What other things would I benefit from getting an I7 over an I5? I occasionally render (not on a regular basis but may be more often soon). Because I would much rather get the best that I can now instead of having to upgrade in a few years. Similar to the mistake I made when selecting the 8320 a year and a half ago.
  11. I've been able to scrape a bit more money together, do you have a solid recommendation for an i7 such as an 4790K and a solid motherboard for about ~£340 all together maybe with a CPU cooler aswell.
  12. Remember, I am using a stock cooler on mine. So my Overclock is not going to get up as high as yours. I can probably boost some more of my settings up but I don't want to touch them since what I have currently is perfect. Game looks awesome and I'm getting a decent stable fps.
  13. I done some changes that I found people mentioning that would fix the issues. Most are gone now mostly stay above 60. Had to change Shadows to High and modify some stuff in the Nvidia Control panel. I did get a nice overclock on my stuff in the process though
  14. There is a definite correlation with FPS Drops and higher CPU Usage when I am playing. Currently i'm trying some overclocking which seems to be helping it stay above 50 FPS.
