I played it with a GTX295, comming from a GTX480 way back just to test on same proc speed. It really chugged down even if I lowered the graphic settings to fit video mem spec :twitch:
295 is a dual gpu card, its only using 1 gpu thus why chug chug chug

frame rate on my system when i had 5850 crossfire performance was the same single or dual gpu didnt matter,

so effectively your comparing at least in GTA IV a gtx 275 downclocked vs a 480

No mentions for the ENB mod? FOR SHAME. Not that anyone would give a trepidious fuck one way or the other.

Buying something in a Steam sale is nothing similar to buying it for a low price for the manufactured version.:D

Technically he just did. ENB mod (which is a great mod, makes things look much better) works like shit with the latest patch on the Steam version.

AND works best with the retail!:D There's alot of YouTube 1080p videos of it which look quite nice. I'm quite sure the computer I'm building will be able to play it, even after unlcoking the GPU.

Yes, hopefully someone can get it working through Steam again. Well, it does work through steam, there's just some .inf's that need changing so the contrast/brightness isn't way too high. The Ultra texture mod (I think that's the name, not at home atm) is good as the engine draws the modded textures better then the stock textures plus they look better.

There's different versions of the Ultimate Car Mod so if you could link me to that, that would be nice

Also how do you install these? Bear in mind I'm using the steam version

I just tested GTA IV with SLI both on and off and I can say with 100% confidence that both of you have no idea what you are talking about. They patched in SLI support with their patches. FPS is improved dramatically in SLI. Both cards are being utilized in Afterburner, I checked before I posted. Too bad SLI doesn't literally double the FPS or I would be locked @ 54, the max for this game.

The city with all its massive buildings are a beast to render. The slowest part of Just Cause 2 BY FAR is the Panau City area. My framerate drops off from locked @ 60 to even as low as 15 FPS there. Makes me realize what Rockstar had to work with. GTA IV looks nice at max settings. Playing @ 1920x1200 helps with the lack of AA support.

This is the reason I wonder if BF3 will run for anyone any higher than 30 FPS. You play in cities with massive buildings that are fully destructible. Destructible environments always bring framerates down. That and it looks photo realistic. Look forward to benchmarks.
Thats good any chance of some pics with and without SLI.

From what i been seeing around has not been any were near impressive.

I did. :rolleyes: All it takes is a bit of google searching to figure out what .inf files need to be edited. The only mod that doesn't seem to work with the Steam version at this point is the RealizmIV mod due to it's self-installer. There are better mods out there than the RealizmIV mod so it's moot.

Doesn't matter since you don't have the physical retail versions. Manufactured physical retail releases are worth far more to me compared to a shitty digitally distributed download. No thanks.

I won't know yet until my computer is finished and that includes the 6950 2GB unlocked to 6970.

Sounds good, just don't turn this thread into an off topic conversation on your feelings with digitally distributed downloads. It doesn't matter in regards to the topic and isn't needed.

GTA IV is all about the CPU. Get a Sandy bridge chip, clock it to 4.5GHz or over and it owns the game. I play at 2048x1536 with a HD 5870 . No stutters and framerate drops at all, smooth as silk. I only have a 2500K, I daresay a 2600K would decimate the game.
Yep. My friend went from a 3.4ghz yorkfield to a 4.5 ghz 2500k. Massive difference in all games, especially cpu dependent ones. Double frame rate in wow, fsx, and gta.

I downloaded some of these, but I don't know how to install them

edit: okay I think I did the realism one, just merge/replace files from the "common" folder
I'll test it now :d
