    So I finally have it so I can see my frame rates and it's not nearly as high as I thought, but it runs flawlessly and smooth. I also use GeForce experience for custom graphics. Maxed pass optimal setting. In Tomb Raider and Metro 2033, I average around 40 fps. What about you guys.

    Is a frightening example of bringing GPU's to their knees. It historically runs bad on most hardware. I recall a year or so ago, it required SLI/Xfire in order to touch 60FPS.

    Metro 2033 (and Last Light if I'm not mistaken) is a very poorly optimized game. Maybe try more games to ease your worries? :)

    It depends on the game, UE3 engine games run poorly to my eyes at less than 60fps and i finished all the campaigns of ArmA3 with a framerate as low as 25. So it depends on the game/engine and whether i play singleplayer or multi.
    For single i usualy target the highest eye candy with >30 fps and multiplayer i go as low as i have to, too reach 60 fps at minimum.

    The latest patches of Metro Light Light fixed performance issues for NVidia but seems to be still junk for most AMD cases.

    I have to say Battlefield 4 is my favorite as it's the only game I constantly play. Ultra+4xMSAA+120% Res Scale at 1080P an I get avg 90 FPS

    They arent that bad. They are just graphically demanding. High res textures, lighting, shadows, tesselation, etc. DOF too.

    When I played Last Light without any patches on my Titan I was getting 10-15fps and it was very choppy, with all patches I am getting stable 60fps at 1440p now. With my flatmate's AMD 7970 which is very near to the Titan in performance (its heavily oc'ed now) you still get 15-20fps.

    All unreal engine games, often outstanding graphics colors effects and high FPS.

    I also like all Cryengine based games.

    I dont like Source engine games

    Favorite games are Source games, CSGO, HL2, Garry's Mod. Team Fortress 2, DotA 2 etc.

    FPS never drops below 100. for some reason I experience severe stuttering when I turn on V-sync so I just keep frame limiting off.

    Also Battlefield 3/4, Runs very fluid on my system despite great graphics. 50-70ish FPS

    recently bought game that is Dark Souls II ran surprisingly smooth as well. Haven't seen the real numbers but I suspect it never drops below 60

    so i went into my geforce experience settings again and manually adjusted the 3d settings, The image quality is like 3 time better now with roughly the same fps and like looks faster in some areas. Odd.
