I have a dell ips 30 inch. 60hz. And like I said I havnt done fraps checks but just from a feel perspective, Gameplay doesn't seem smooth. If I lower resolution or turn off some AA the smooth feel is there, probably maxing the 60 frames on the monitor.
It's not screen tearing I'm seeing. I do have vsync on, it's most noticeable to me in metro 2033.

I'll do a check on fraps on metro and see what I'm getting.

My CPU is overclocked to 4.5 and the gpu is still stock. I might look into some overclocking on that and see if I get some improvement.

Turn on adaptive vsync, doesn't seem like you need another gfx. That would be overkill, and your monitor is your bottleneck

Hehe when I get back from my holiday. I'm filling a claim against Asus.
Leaving services running, in the background, after the software has been uninstalled is against the law. Competition and consumer wink.gif

ok im now home and discovered that metro 2033 has a benchmark run, who knew!?tongue.gif

so im running it now and ya my not so smooth gameplay is because of an average FPS of 16 with a max of 33.

im running the benchmark at
DX11, 2560x1600 Quality Very High, MSAA 4X, AF 16X, enable advanced PhysX enable, DX11 option DOF enable. the default frontline scene. doing 3 runs.

these are the same options i have enabled when i play. so i guess the question now becomes is it even possible to max 60fps on this game with these settings?

Put adaptive vsync for starters...

I did, those numbers are with adaptive vsync on.

from what i understand adaptive vsync turns vsync on if i go over 60fps, which im not even coming close to.

Well not exactly. It also boosts your fps if vsync is activated. In other words, it shouldn't drop under 30fps.
That's very odd for a card like that...even my 660ti doesn't drop to 16fps. And that's on ultra on bf3 or on borderlands 2. Lowest I've seen mine is at 35. I'm running on a 1080p display though

well i just ran a bit of BF3 campaign with everything maxed and my benchmark on fraps put me at average 49, 23 min and 63 max, this is still adaptive vsync enabled and all settings maxed. the gameplay was pretty smooth, i wonder if the metro engine is just that different and demanding.
post #5390 of 6915
That seems ok...but not great for a 680- your card should be always at 60fps in that respect. I'm maybe thinking pcie speeds?
Try running heaven benchmark and seeing what you get. Check my thread I created on queuing about ocing the 660ti - never did in the end. Mine runs on stock, fps is high. I can hit over 120fps with vsync off on single player bf3
