I'll give it a shot, I have 16gb of RAM so I shouldn't need one but some programs are finicky..
I'll set it on my HDD, I don't want a pagefile on my SSD.

To the guy with possible VRAM limitations: Texture settings and AA settings will eat the most VRAM so I'd turn those down first. Then postprocessing.

I was under the impression the VRAM is fine for 1080?

does your GPU usage go up if you increase your settings? and does your FPS go down?

FPS drops with no increase in usage.

Only playing at 1080 and I forgot to mention in my OP, I get the same usage out of both cards with graphic settings on low.

How bad is having a page file on an SSD? I had crashing so I just set it to the recommended since I don't know much about it.
1 TB SSD though and hardly full. I do also have an empty unused at the moment HDD sitting in there as well which is why I am curious.

I imagine it's not too bad, I just want to avoid unnecessary writes if possible.

Anyway, setting a 1gb pagefile on my HDD seems to have fixed the problem, thanks. Now I can enjoy my game.

Its not really bad at all, but it will have extra writes. However if you have the SSD with your OS on it it is reading and writing all the time... so tongue.gif
Having it on an SSD, RAID, or an extra hard drive is usually best so when it is used it doesn't slow the system down.

With 8 or 16 GB of RAM it should hardly ever be used though.

Running my sig rig, I get terrible GPU usage (570s SLI). It never exceeds 48% on both cards, but sometimes dips below 40%. Just recently bumped my CPU OC to 4.8 from 4.2 to see if it was a CPU bottle neck, but to no avail. I still run the game on medium-high settings with the FPS fluctuating between 45-95, but I know I should be able to get more out of this set-up if it weren't for the awful GPU usage. This only happens with BF4, even the terribly optimized DayZ SA runs my cards at 80%+. I'm positive it's not a heat issue, as the cards never exceed 35C.

I know my hardware is a bit dated, but I cannot be the only one with this issue. Please help!

I run a 560Ti 1GB and 1080p, If I put everything on medium without AA (SSAO on) I quickly run out of VRAM in quite a few maps ( Lancang and golmud for sure) and then framedrops occur. Ever tried to reduce settings?

Your impression was wrong, maybe three - four years ago it was fine.

The usage is the same no matter what map I play, a pretty constant 45% (occasionally a bit lower). As I stated I see no improvements decreasing graphic settings (never running AA). I suppose I can do a test run it at 720... mad.gif But if that is the only fix, I will just deal with it at 1080 as I do have playable frames rate. Obviously I want to get 120 to take full advantage of my XL2420T. Which I should be able to do if the usage wasn't so poor.
