always ULTRA with no AAyou are really almost making things up as you go along.
And i actually proved you wrong about that so i asked for an apology, i didn't think it was out of line to expect one

I would really like to see your cpu and gpu useage like the pics I posted.
When i underline and/or put text in bold it means i'm trying to draw your attention to that part in particular
as far as you providing me the benchamrks only....did you send them to me in an email or did you share in this thread for all to read?
anything I put In the thread (and I put a lot for the amount of time I been posting in this thread) I hope helps anyone that can use it.
Well considering the "discussion" (i use that term loosely) was taking place in this thread i thought i better respond here
I do appreciate that you did some testing but you did not open up taskmanager performance tab and have gpu-z running so if we can see its pegged.
you said you were gonna do it but I guess you didn't like the results.
Umm, No i didn't, I said i was going to show you that you were wrong and i believe that i did, I get better performance with 2 GPU's than i do with 1.
You also realise that having too many programs monitoring can actually screw up the readings right?
the max cpu/thread usage is good idea. I will start grabbing that one in hwinfo4 instead of manually picking it like I had been
you can very well see at least one of your cores is almost maxed out just like mine with 1 single card.
I'm assuming you are talking about your rig there because i'm running Crossfire, thought that was apparent and the results for the CPU are the same.
Red was pointing out to me that some of the less used cores might pickup more usage when adding a vcard to make sli / cfx instead of piling onto the most used core.
I hope hes right.
yes, that is correct
when you are riding the line of 90% cpu usage on some of the cores well it don't take very much to mike it lag/spike especially if one of those high usage cores get hit with some kind of game info all at once
Well considering i was watching a movie, having Chrome open with about 15 tabs plus having Steam, Origin, Teamspeak and a whole bunch of other junk running i never pegged any of my cores at 100%
yes its hard to test if what your looking for is a repeatable fps figures.
what is not hard to test is close up explosions to see what they do to that ms per frame and also cpu and gpu spikes
by "runnin and gunnin" aka "yolo" is pretty good way to do it but I take c4 and plant the stuff on walls and step back and look at the walls and then detonate and that usually can reproduce it.
that's why included the frame times and fps instead of GPU-Z, FPS is more important than usage for me.
one of the best maps for repeatability is operation locker and even operation metro
most of the choke points are easily repeatable and those 2 maps should probably be the testing maps for what we are doing as Caspian boarder and operation firestorm are pretty big out door maps.
on operation firestorm if you blow up some of those gas containers by B and it spills burning fuel onto the ground it really takes a hit on my gpu when its in 1080P ultra no aa
I imagine getting another vcard for sli will help that out a lot.
Look, my 290's aren't made for 1080p, they are a much more powerful card than your 770 and they are meant for a higher resolution, even at 1440p i still get well over 100fps in nearly every game i have.
the explosions and lots of "sound" going on works the cpu I believe and loading assets / animations w/e works the cpu more and that's where the spikes/lag/drop in fps come from I think.
Sometimes this is just the way the game is and no matter what hardware you are running it can cause unexpected dips.
I do appreciate any help you provide or anyone else help for that matter.
we are all after the same thing here aren't we?
Not really, I'm here because i think OCN is a great place filled with people who are very helpful and knowledgeable and i like to help out those that want that help.
google tdbone1 with 8800gts, 5770, 5870, 6870, 9800gtx+ as my name starts to pop up with all those systems in SLI or CFX
I been doing it since the 3dfx monster video cards who owned the "SLI" name until NVidia sued them and took back the "SLI" name and hired some of 3dfx people.
3dfx was sued by NVidia and went out of business but NVidia kept "sli" name as we use it today.
so my 1st sli setup was in 97 about
All that tells me is you had Multi-GPU setups before, doesn't mean you are an expert by any means, I've had 3 different Crossfire rigs but that doesn't mean the same rules apply to Hawaii as they did to RV770
so when you try to "order" people you should know some people know quite a bit (like I do)
Now this one made me laugh, you think I'm ordering people around?
ill probably wind up getting another matching gtx 770 next month but not sure if I loose FSAA or if it will introduce transparency problems or what.
used to have overlapping textures in BFBC2 when in sli/cfx and other anomalies.
what the most important thing is though is gameplay
have to have those ms per frame really low during heavy action.
I think i posted to you about 10 pages back about getting some better ram and probably a better PSU before you go for SLI.
You have (arguably) the best board for RAM overclocking but you are running some silly little 1333Mhz sticks on it?
But it doesn't matter because you still won't listen.......
