I've been debating what game to play next. Absolutely nothing is giving this bad boy any problems.

I wish I had the money to build a computer again. My AMD 6780 doesn't quite crank some of the DX11 games at 1920x1080.

I don't think you are going to find one that does right now. I still haven't played a game that makes my 670 struggle. Far Cry 3 might put up a fight when it comes out.

Run some games with PhysX all the way up if you want to see it sweat a little.

I'll try that. Any suggestions as far as which ones?

Friday I'm exchanging this one for an EVGA GTX680 FTW. This one doesn't OC for ****.

Borderlands 2 and the Batman Arkham games are the only ones I have and know have PhysX for sure.

some scenes on borderlands if you look way off towards the distance where there are a lot of textures and clouds and water give the 680a bit of a work out but not to bad.

I was playing BL2 earlier today, I love that game!

BF3 sure makes it work, fortunately it never gets past 60c thanks to am adjusted fan curve.

The War Z is a lot of fun, even this early on. Definitely not struggle for this card.

Side note, I'm still shocked I got a 680 at all. This thing is awesome. I cant wait for the FTW or SC signature 2 card next week.

I noticed I had a tougher time playing Metro 2033 than BF3 on my card. Also, Crysis 1 works my card harder than Crysis 2 does. Go figure. Probably from rendering all the leaves and **** in Cry1.

2033 never gave me troubles. BF3 sure does.

Crysis doesn't either.

2033 didn't run at 60fps for me but its one of the few games does run better on AMD cards.

Also Crysis runs worse than Crysis 2 because the first one isn't optimized for ****.

Crysis 2 is optimized better than Crysis 1? Lolwhat.



Guess how many polies they put on to this essentially flat barrier?



Eeeeyup.

Normal city park scene, right?



Wrong! Look at this animated water mesh underneath the city trees!

Do Skyrim with ENB + FXAA + HD retextures... the game looks 1000x better than stock ... after you tweak the shadows in the .ini ... it truly looks amazing. And I don't use that word lightly.

For those of you who don't know about GOG, they're great for those old *** games. They have some awesome deals on occasion, such as these!

I heard its iffy at best and war of roses was the better option.

I guess it depends if you're looking for arcadey or realistic.
