Borderlands 2 Information & Discussion Thread - Page 336

post #3351 of 3843
I'm level 29 on my Krieg playthrough. I'm doing the Middle Tree with a few in the right side. I think the dynamite in fight for your life does less damage than if I had a good rocket launcher but it is nice to be able to run around. It's good fun with the buzz axe though. Best special ability of any of the characters imo.

I have a spare GT 430 lying around that I would pop in for PhysX, except that it would sit about 10mm away from my lower 7870 and block the airflow completely. I guess this is what I get for air cooling in a case meant for watercooling...

Yeah if you have a spare nvidia card, dedicate that to physX and you're the ultimate winner basically.
As for air flow - gpu's expel air, so if anything the little 460 will run hotter than it would have done.

Definitely worth it to add in any Nvidia card you have (well, GTx30/40 or better) as a dedicated PhysX card for this game! Running with a single GTX670 FTW (1294core/6960mem) gives excellent frame rates, but even with 2 7970 Lightnings in CFX (1320core/6780mem) paired with either 3770K @ 5130Mhz (DDR3-2404 9-11-11-29 1T 2x4GB) or 3930K @ 4884Mhz (DDR3-2384 9-10-10-27 1T), it stumbles quite a bit compared to the single 670. Nvidia cards really have an advantage in this game, probably more so than I've seen in any other.

Tossing in a GTX650Ti Boost for PhysX with the 7970 Lightnings increased the minimum FPS from 18 to 51 (Avg 83-91fps), although the game still doesn't feel half as smooth as the single 670 (~68-74fps everything completely maxed out on a 1080p screen; min FPS of 49). However, if you don't mind/notice the Cross-Fire X (and single GPU) issues with AMD, then the PhysX card makes a world of difference!

I don't know if anyone else noticed, but Steam recently added Borderlands 2 into the trading card thing.

I already earned my 3 and sold them on the marketplace. I'll buy them back later once the price drops, haha. I still don't understand how people can spend real money on this stuff.

I need to look up what that is tbh lol.

As for the dedicated Nvidia card - yeah it is useful, but something as low as a 460 will do fine, for JUST physX

AMD has some serious stuttering problems in this game. Capping the FPS to 60 fixed most of the stuttering but introduced ridiculous amounts of tearing.

I play with vsync on and always get a solid 60fps with no tearing.

Well, I tried a few hours ago to use PayPal to buy the DLC on Steam, didn't work. When I entered my info in steam and proceeded to check out, it popped up a window in paypal called "Choose a PayPal payment method", and the only two options were "Link a new credit card" or "Add money from your bank account (not instant)".

HOW ABOUT LETTING ME PAY WITH THE MONEY IN MY PAYPAL ACCOUNT I WAITED A WEEK TRANSFERRING FROM MY BANK ACCOUNT, YOU BRAIN-DAMAGED MORONS? doh.gif

Sent off a frustrated e-mail to them asking how I can pay with the money in my account; if they don't give me a solution I'll transfer the money back to my bank account, write off paypal as completely useless, and close my account.

Could anyone give some helpful advice for how to get paypal to actually be useful in this case?
