Hi, I recently purchased a few gaming components to build a BF3 system amongst other games. My problem is that I think their may be a bottleneck in my system because I can only run on high settings with about 30-40fps. Wondering if I can get some opinions: thank you
Intel i5-2500k cpu
Asus P8Z77-V LX mobo
Kingston hyperx 1600mhz 2x4gb
EVGA GTX 550ti 1gb Superclocked
1tb seagate 7200rpm 64mb cache
Coolmaster 500W powersupply?
Windows 7 Home 64bit
Philips ultraslim 23" LED widescreen monitor
According to nvidias website I should be able to run on ultra 1080p with avg 44 fps?
I have AA turned off in game. I'm not sure that the driver settings are set at. Would the driver settings need to be turnedoff? I'm not currently at home but will be in a couple hours. All other in-game settings match. I have the 550ti 1 gb superclocked, not the 2gb version, would that make a difference?
Yess, I. Understand, I'm just having a trouble time trying to understand why and how a 550ti on nvidia's website gets 44 fps on ultra with aa off...impossible..my psu is more than enough you guys are saying?
There will nearly always be a difference in benchmarks and real life performance as benchmarks only test a small part of the game and are on PCs with a clean windows install and no anti-virus or anything else in the background, also Nvidia will always want to give there cards the best figures they can by cherry picking the best tests. Just to confirm again the only way to get better FPS is a GPU upgrade.
you may get 44 in the single player but there giving the average... even on my card which is stronger than yours i wont get 44 minimum with them settings.
typical nvida for overstating the ability of there hardware... i havent ever seen them give a true account of there hardwares ability...
same goes for ati... they both really do try to oversell there hardwares abilities...
your system your want medium settings with dx11 turned off high / ultra textures. for a rock solid 60 minimum
Understood and agreed. Another 300 dollars will get you from 30-40 fps on high to 60-70 on ultra...not worth...wayyyy not worth it...lol what a rip. But I'm a sucker..so they'll catch another 400 dollar net from me lol..
