    Yep, GTX680, some 30-40 fps-ish onm huge vistas in BL2 on max settings 1080p. Frame drops in GW2 as well. I'm pretty sure someone here would reply, "wtf you talking about, I get over 9000 fps on my GTX560 / HD7980 or whatever :laugh:. Really.. probably when he's facing a wall corner in game.

    Heck, even the very own BL2 thread here asks for "performance enhancements" or whatever. http://www.techpowerup.com/forums/showthread.php?t=169567&page=17

    Some people are just not as keen when it comes to framerate. 30-40 fps can pass as acceptable to them. There are some people who value accuracy in these kind of games especially when stuff goes insane on screen.. hence the demand for a constant 60+ fps

    I sometimes think there's more to just the cards than the drivers and the hardware. I went about 40fps in BF3 (as a low but nothing below that, that was noticeable). Likewise in GW2, no dips below 60-70fps (and these were on single card, 2560x1440).

    I use a G19 with my display monitoring fps and temps so I keep an eye on both.

    The one game i had huge dips with was Skyrim. I'm sure it was worse on my GTX 580 (having to alt-tab out of game or was it restart? to fix). I think the coding of certain games is just dire and is affected by more than just 'shoddy' drivers. Sometimes a poorly coded game can't be addressed 100% by driver fixes.

    It was often very random. Wasn't from crowded scenes, played single player only. Usually, IIRC if i loaded into a new area it would go back to normal. We're talking 5fps territory.
