My gpu load seemed stable on the map operation locker, but maps like flood zone or shangai take more out of it maxing it out aswell.
This is most likely due to my gpu being outdated, despite that i'm sure I can play MP on med settings if the other "bottlenecks" go away.

There's still a few things I might have to try that could increase my performance.
A full reinstall would probably help, but i'm waiting out on that as i'm getting an SSD soon anyway.
Upgrading to win 8, appears alot of players noted a good performance boost after switching to windows 8.1. I might do that if my game still runs like crap after I get my SSD, but i will look at this option as my final solution.

Maybe adding the SSD & 4gb extra ram will eliminate this problem for good.
I love this game, but it becomes so unplayable after a while. Guess I have to hold out to it for a while longer.

Man definately get more RAM, keep me updated I heard SSD can help because this games loads craploads of textures .. maybe that's just it.. I'm running windows 8 right now though and it's not helping with the lags much apparently, which is the least place you would expect your FPS to drop !

It's playable, but those random FPS drops are so annoying, especially as I said it seems to come from something else than just my graphic card because it happens in the menu screen (weapon selection etc) too..

Your gpu is fine for low to medium, with aa probably off @ 1080p.
Yeah a sata3 7200rpm hdd is already considerably slower than an ssd, now if you have 5400, you might be waiting for 3 mins to get into the game.
So, get the ram, then report back here smile.gif

Sorry for double post I just seen this other post I mean to answer..

What you think would cause my stutters then though ? I got 8 gb RAM

What's your FULL system specs?

^this.
No matter which way you look at it.

As much as a 144hz screen is good (especially if it had lightboost) - I don't honestly see the point in 144hz over 120hz or 96hz - when a GPU will have trouble outputting that, CONSISTENTLY at 1080P or 1440p. Sure if we talk about 720p - I would totally agree.
But if you're playing at 720p - then what on earth are you doing spending £200+ on a 1080P monitor lol.

I understand 60hz vs 120hz - but above that...you have to look at your GPU. Just because your monitor has 144hz, doesn't mean that your GPU will be able to give you 144hz consistently.

Finally about the response time - as much as I did notice a difference between 8ms and 1ms (it's super minimal to me, someone who twitch shoots with a sniper at close range) - It wasn't something that would make me go: "I would definitely buy that, because it has a better response time"

This. So much. It's like the "console peasants" coming away with "30fps is more cinematic than 60fps" or "it's not about the graphics". I myself have a 1080p TN panel, but that's purely down to available funds. As much as I would love a 1440p IPS monitor (and I have the horsepower to drive it), I have other interests that take funds away from that frown.gif

you do get overclockable 1440p 120hz panels...i have played on them they just require plenty gpu power to fully utilize the higher refresh rate at that res
post #22876 of 29735
@ Totally dubbed it's in my sig m8

But I tweaked a bit my overclocking, today after a 1h or so BF4 session I had not a single FPS drop, hope it lasts..I use teamspeak also usually when I play with friends and I wasn't using it now, I wonder if that could cause me lag mmh..

So flying a jet is MUCH harder than I thought. Managed 5 kills yesterday. So total trying to get Phantom camo 5-200. Haha

I changed Origin setting to x86. Was that the right thing to do?

No ha... x86 is 32bit... basically let it run as default which will be 64bit.

Also, I use keyboard for basic jet flying... but when I line up to ground attack, I switch to mouse. It provides much more intricate accuracy. I do have a joystick, but I don't have the space nor time to set it up. Also, it didn't really provide that much benefit over my existing setup.

Using mouse and having a little luck (i.e. not having the red baron flying a jet on the opposition team), I can rack up a good number of kills. I personally use hydra rockets on the Frogfoot/A-10/Fantan.

Just a tip: bind 'pull up' to spacebar when you're in a Jet, that lets you do those super-tight turns and means you don't always run out of Mousepad! biggrin.gif

Yup. Did that last night. Huge I mean huge difference. Still can't aim for **** thou. Haha. Turned down my mouse sensitivity and that seems to help a little.
