I was getting 50fps on very high with medium post fx with a sapphire 7850 at 1440p, so I'd say no.

Oh and same drivers.

This is as close to Skyrim as Arkham City is to Grand Theft Auto. Reviewers are dumb. Fallout is Skyrim with guns.

Exactly, it's a excellent game and not really like Skyrim.

I'm not a huge FPS person (I was tired of BF3 in a month) and I really enjoyed FC3. I took my time and savored every moment.

GOYT for sure

Mate.is it worth a upgrade from 460 to 660ti?

Honestly that's a matter of what you're playing and how satisfied you are with your current in-game experiences. Obviously the 660ti no doubt has a lot more GPU muscle, hands down, over the 460... provided it's not bottled necked. Any benchmark chart makes that pretty obvious. But you have to decide for yourself if going from medium (or whatever) settings to high or very high settings in the more modern titles is worth 300 bucks? It's an individual decision depending on your situation. Being a middle aged D.I.N.K. the decision was "yes" for me. However still I can't help but think 300 bucks is a lot of money to spend just to go up a couple notches in video settings. wink.gif

Yea, that selling point was what sold me. I really like Skyrim. However this game is definitely not "Skyrim with guns." It's more like... hell I dunno. LOL It's really a game all in it's on FPS sub genre. I really don't regret buying the game at all. And to add weight to that, the game cost me $350 since I upgraded my video card (mostly) because of it. thumb.gif (Unfortunately I was a little late on the free game copy when buying the graphics card... heard a few weeks ago they were giving free copies with certain cards on newegg?)

The way I've kept up with the times GPU wise is I bought the best GPU a couple years ago when I finaly had a stable job. Since then Each year the "new" GPU comes out I sell off the last generation for $100-$200 of what I paid. Take that money and invest it into the "new" GPU. So instead of shovling out $500-$600 a GPU I pay maybe $250. Which is reasonable for the top end. That couple notches for good games like Far Cry really make it worth the investment.
