I get that, but a good percent of pc gamers use crossfire. I think all modern games should support it, especially considering people have modified it to work themselves.

And I did have it working but then steam updated it and I can't rollback (I don't think) so now I'm screwed. I was watching some video on the development of saints row 3 and they said they didn't intend to do anything with Eyefinity but last minute they incorporated it and they said it was much easier than they thought it would be.

Nope, I love PC gaming. I'm PC/Vita exclusive now. If it comes out on the **** box or PoS3, it doesn't exist.

How you liking the Vita? So close to buying one but trying to justify the 300 dollar price tag (looking at the 3g version)
post #124 of 164
ya it is a drag because often you need to do x.y.z tweak then a,b,c tweak etc while on console the console update those for you so you are always at the cutting edge of console on pc you got to figure out a lot!

That's like saying your at the top of your class when your whole class "eats glue"....sorry I had to. No offence to consoule user's...I just had to biggrin.gif

I do agree. One must be much more involved with PC gaming, while console gaming is more plug and play.I also feel that my experience as a user is related directly to how much time and money is invested. I as many other's have spent lots of time and money on our rigs and it has payed off by having a problem free gaming experience. Not totally problem free, but I can't remember the last actual problem I had that stopped me from enjoying my favorite game's.

The console is about 1/3 the price of my rig, and I feel the experience I get form one is about 1/3 that of my PC gaming experience.mind you YMMV thumb.gif

Umm I dont get it? You can afford that setup but can't manage a decent internet connection do you live in the north pole or on the moon?
post #128 of 164

I love PC gaming to death. I dont use eyefinity nor crossfire/SLI. I run a single GPU with a single 1920x1080 monitor & I have ZERO problems. I also dont use 12.1 drivers as they made my PC crash alot I still use 11.12. I have consoles also but only for Console exclusives & to play with most of my friends & my brother. Most of my friends refuse to buy a PC & my brother just cant afford one.

Yeah I do. Well not the north pole or moon but it is because of my location. It's a real drag not having good Internet lol. I'm considering selling my rig at this point. I could use the money and I don't need to waste anymore time on this d*mn thing.

Why not try to disable crossfire & try running a single GPU & see how that works for you. IMO opinion running a single card is the best option & I hear eyefinity does have its issues
