Besides Witcher 2, Metro, Batman AC and Skyrim which games can flex my gpu muscle?

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
I'm really feeling like my setup is underutilized. Not that I'm complaining, everything works great (cept for rage not using sli and thinking my 9600 is my only other card), but I'm really lookin' to put these boys to the test.

Any recommendations?

Man, I've had so many problems trying to even get my account setup with FF14 that I gave up.

As many people who had problems with that game, I never saw a lick of it. Just lucky I guess.

And I already have BF3, great graphics but doesn't really bring my card to it's knees or anything. Is witcher 2 dx9? How the heck is that game so gorgeous?

Thats the only game I could think of that would tax a computer in such a way. I used to have 2x570's and it still was having issues staying at 40-50fps with AO off and all others at hi-max.

Witcher 2 has dx11

Totally maxed out Just Cause 2 is challenging to maintain 60fps at all times unless you have a TON of GPU power. Stalker Call of Pripyat and Clear Sky, also maxed, can put a good strain on a video card. Of course there's also Crysis 2, Battlefield 3, the latest Shogun game, Lost Planet 2, Aliens Vs. Predator, etc.

Doog, actually DX9 can do everything that DX11 can do in terms of graphical features. It can even do tessellation, technically ... but performance will be crushed by it as it's a software implementation instead of a hardware one on DX11 cards using DX11 API. Witcher 2 may 'have' DX11, but it's really a DX9 game. And it does look amazing ...

BTW did they ever fix the craptastic DX11 performance on Arkham City?
