Not sure if i should download these drivers. Don't want it to affect my performance for BF3. I too had thought of upgrading my video card.

Killer looking game with all the setting maxed @ 1080p. Opening scenes were really good. I enjoyed the graphics, camera work, voice casting, the plot and character design.

However, I'm getting a fair amount of game crashes and the occasional gpu driver crash. That is what I get for using beta drivers, Windows 8, and Xfiring a couple of 6970s. I would think that beta drivers + new OS + dual-card use could cause some issues. Most of this stuff hammers itself out in time.

The FC3 crashes my Heaven/BF3 Stable GPU OC just don't overclock when playing FC3. endof. Allotta people are reporting it, but I don't think that one should consider it the new stability tester for GPU's.

Does anyone know how to sell the items in your Loot Runsack ? Because i don't wanna discard a few things that have much value?

Is there some fella i am supposed to meet to sell these stuff to earn cash ?
post #855 of 1920
I've noticed my gpu is definitely more stressed in this game than any other so far except for maybe Metro, but my max OC is still stable as hell. 7970 @ 1200/ 1600 1.2v max temp is 65c all air.

The mobile site does not show all the fancy stuff.

3) About what kind of performance could I expect given my system? I don't care about AA so that can be off, I prefer using FXAA anyways.
Again, sorry for the questions, I am sure they are pretty repetitive.

Alright, well after reading a bit I think I answered my last one... should be good on that front I think. Anyone care to talk about the game other than performance? Screen shots look alright but how's the actual gameplay/story?

The campaign is amazing, it has some of the best characters I've seen in any game. It is quite short though, I completed the campaign, side quests and most of the collectables in about 20 hours. I'd expect the campaign alone to take that long. If you're unsure whether to buy it or not, I say it's probably the best game released this year thumb.gif
