    Hey guys, can someone point me towards an app that could monitor my FPS and GPU usage and other useful info and display it "IN-GAME" ???

    MSI afterburner is probabily the best thing. you can add GPU temps and fan speed too if you need it

    make sure to go in the options and enable the on screen display. it doesn't do it out of the box. I think you may have to set a hot key to activate/deactivate it as well, been a while since I used it.

    Other quick question: What makes the GPU usage go up or down?

    I'm playing Crysis 2 right now with dx11 with maxed settings... Got 2x 69502gb in CFX and I noticed using MSI AB that the GPU usage hovers around 70% except when I'm looking straight @ a wall, it'll go to 90~% GPU usage ...

    I'm trying to find a way to improve the FPS in Crysis 2 using CFX... hoping for a new CAP release to come out and fix it for me... Meanwhile, I'm trying to find what tweaks I could try to improve GPU usage and FPS...

    I would guess its proximity of what is being looked at, and the amount of textures used to produce the image. Meaning far off is easier to produce than a wall with finite details that are essentially in your face.
