A8 3870k trying to play borderlands 2 with max Physx Tags: Radeon GPUs Physx Graphics Last response: October 31, 2012 4:38 AM in Graphics & Displays Share talkskiwon October 31, 2012 4:06:33 AM Proc. A8 3870K Ram 4Gb GPU AMD 6650 PSU Corsair 650 Motherboard ASUS fm1 A75 v pro So, earlier this year I build a new pc with 3870k APU just to have a budget pc. Later this year, I saw borderlands 2 on commercial and thought this would be a great low maintenance game. I was wrong....the game demands very good GPU to get good PhysX effect. the game is awesome and..I am looking to upgrad my gpu. Its already crossfired with 6650 but Physx quality is really bad I was looking at hd 6950, but would this bottleneck with my cpu? Also I haven't overclocked my cpu and gpu yet, (don't know how to oc the cpu ) should I get it overclocked it first? how would this improve the physX? Any suggestions and advises are welcomed!

That is why it responds so well to CPU overclocking. Overclocking the CPU is a good way to get better performance in Borderlands2. | Report abuse Ask the community Publish Tom's Hardware>Forum>Graphics & Displays>A8 3870k trying to play borderlands 2 with max Physx> Related ressources: Forum(AMD A8 3870K ) Vs (Intel G620 + HD4670 512mb DDR3) Perf and power ForumAMD A8 3870K BF3 on High...
