Ya, I played the game with dual 7970 and it was running great for me. If I was to guess, its probably drivers.

Hey, does anyone have a link for the High Resolution texture mod that was made here? I can't find it anywhere anymore. If anyone knows of some good SweetFX configs, i'd like to see them too.

Wanna see what the difference between DX11 and DX9 + SweetFX + High res is.

I bought this on release, but I think I was open world fatigued at that stage and it went on the pile of shame. After getting some new cards, I was curious to see what it looked like now. I was onl able to play with reduced settings at 40 fps and it was a bit messy. Now? Lordy, sit 60-70 fps everything pretty much maxed and it a great looking game, plus, I have put a few hours in and I am loving it.

Having msi afterburner on would create stuttering for me.

There's a huge difference between 4x msaa and 8x, however your monitor size and resolution decide whether the difference is something the human eye can pick out. Anything up to 1080p on a screen smaller than 30 inches and 4x MSAA will be fine. If you use a 30 inch+ monitor or if you run a minimum of 1080p...or if you have a great GPU and can get away with it throw on dat 8x msaa. Of course there's other factors involved such as other types of aa you're using (such as using OGSSAA/SGSSAA) but that's something to worry about IF you're using a non-standard setup.
