Maybe get something a little bigger, like a 7870?

i know i know lol. this computer is my first build i have put together. was pretty awesome accomplish for me not being very knowledgeable with computers or how to use them more than facebook, email, and editing video.

the HD7770 was actually an upgrade on my old pc replacing the 9800GT and i ended up just bringing the 7770 over to my new pc to save a little money on the cost of buying all the parts together. but i do graduate college very soon and hope to continue getting video production work. but i do plan on upgrading to a much better AMD card when i have the money. i still need to buy another 2TB drive for storage. i just hope that adobe picks up support for AMD video cards because i definitely like what im getting out of this one compared to my 9800GT lolol

other than that i could always crossfire but getting a bigger card is always better i think biggrin.gif

I just found out my issue with sudden lag, it was the Physx. When I got into a firefight it was start lagging like mad.

I've turned Physx to low now and it hasn't happened again, yet....

Yup I think your computer is passing the physx work to your processor, and its not happy about it.

So, just picked this up last night. 2 things:

1) For some reason, using the in-game voip with push to talk, causes it to drop frames for me. If I push and hold the button, nothing changes, but as soon as I let go of the PTT button, the game drops from 60 to about 40ish frames for about half a second. Every time. Changing it to voice activated fixed the problem though.

2) I can't see the mouse in the menus. It's invisible. If I hold me PTT key, then it shows up fine. I can click menus and highlight things while it's invisible, I just can't see the pointer itself.
EDIT: Problem is solved by uninstalling the motionjoy drivers or USB hub or whatever. I'll need to do that this evening.

Any advice? Thanks.

I did not play the first game, I must say this is a great game. When I first booted up the game my FPS did not seem as high as I would have liked it for this console port. This game is in no why as demanding as BF3 and my rig destroys that game. Whenever a new game comes out and my FPS seem low, like something nefarious is going on in background (http://techreport.com/review/21404/crysis-2-tessellation-too-much-of-a-good-thing.) I always go to the Catalyst Control Center and tweak my settings there and as usual my FPS jumped right up to what I would expect from my rig.

I did a quick 90 seconds fraps run @ 1080p with settings below while fighting multiple enemies:

Fraps 90sec run - min 34fps, avg 68fps, max 135fps

Settings:
4x MSAA - Forced through the catalyst control center
16 AF - Forced through the catalyst control center
PhysX medium - via willow.ini
FXAA -OFF
Everything else on or maxed out

If you own AMD card you have to use the Catalyst Control Center to tweak your settings, especially if you are running crossfire.

Have a good day guys.

Played a little during lunch. Found 3 chests and 3 port a johns. One chest had all white weapons, two had shields. One john had 1 green and 1 white weapon, the other two had shields. This is very aggravating.

Is there a mod that allows you to switch between character classes? I have a lvl 18 Zero and would like to try out some of the other classes but don't want to spend dozens of hours re-doing the same missions. Can I edit the save file to make him one of the other classes?

Game is awesome btw. I love the cell shading and the wacky humor. After playing so much GW2 I keep wanting to harvest the mushrooms...

i dont think that would be possible. never heard of anything like that for borderlands 1

also starting over isnt that bad because you can take different routes you didnt use in your other play through which might lead you to some nice hidden chests with rare guns. i spend a lot of time exploring while on a mission just because when you do find that one chest thats not meant to be found easily its pretty rewarding

I jumped in a new game with a few friends last night and decided to try out a new character. Maya is a freakin badass. The phase lock is pure awesome.

Well I have gotten to 19th level siren....once thing on this borderlands as compared to the original....on borderlands1 I was able to get away with only having one or two types of elemental weapons....in this game it behooves you to have one of each type... corrosive for the mechs, fire for people(except for the pyros), shock for the shielded oponents...and explosive for the rock creatures... one can use the slag weapons to help compensate for a lack of a element...but not enough imo.... oh btw...use the badass tokens to help up your stats...that helps a lot... I am getting killed much quicker and more easily than I did on the first one...
