It appears using the latest 310.70 drivers released today you don't need to do any of the steps I provided as it includes this proper SLI profile. thumb.gif

Does anyone know how to set a custom framerate limit in Nvidia control panel or Inspector? I just want a limit on Far Cry 3 frames.

7870 owner here, and I have a major issue.

Running @ 1920x1200, no aa, very high settings, GPU buffer set to 1, DX11, HDAO, no MSAA, and my framerate is laggy at around 20 fps. Something has to be wrong here. I see other people with 7870's running twice as good as this, if not faster.

Currently on the CAT 12.11's Beta 11 w/ CAP 2. Not sure what the issue is, but performance sucks. thumbsdownsmileyanim.gif

Specs in sig. I guarantee it's not my CPU, so don't even suggest that please.

I made a new folder in my SSD and i tried to add FC3 but it said the steam library folder must be writable?

I have Steamapps on my HDD, but selected games on my SSD.

Does Steam Mover do the same thing?

If you have latest steam client update you can create a steam install directory on different hard drives as well now.

It looks like our rigs are identical, I am downloading the game right now so I will let you know how mine performs.
