Finally got my EVGA ACX 780, got a few questions.

post #1 of 6
Thread Starter 
For one, why on earth do MMO's still lag? I'm convinced it has something to do with internet traffic but I have a 100MB connection. Doubtful I'm the culprit.

Second, how do you overclock this thing? I can't figure out how to move the sliders on this new precision.

Third, but not least, what games are you using to max this puppy out. Games I've played around with so far:

Metro Last Night
Crysis 3
Witcher 2
Sleeping Dogs
Max Payne 3

and a few others.

Playing at 1080p.


Also, this thing barely runs gta 4 at decent framerates....I mean, they're above 40 most of the time but I still get the same dips into the 30's as with my 480's. Is this game bottlenecking somewhere or is there a framerate cap depending on how much animation is going on?

MMO's are generally CPU bound, and if you mean lag as in abilities are going off way later than when you hit a button, then yeah that is internet connection lag, not fps lag lol.

to overclock with precision, basically you move the core slider up as much as you can with it remaining stable, same with the memory, you can adjust voltages too by clicking the voltage button and setting it where you want, hit apply to set the clocks you want to keep.

all of those games are very common for testing if your overclock is game stable, the killer one though ive seen is far cry 3, your card might be stable in all those other games, but farcry 3 will come along with a big bucket of NOPE and just pour it all over you.

I believe MMOs are CPU bottlenecked in high populate areas. My 2600k @ 4.4 drops down to 50s in Neverwinter.

To overclock, head over to the official 780 thread, there's a good guide on the front page that explains everything.

I don't own GTA4, but I read it is a buggy mess.

If those games you mentioned ran fine, with a 2x improvement vs your old 480, you should be fine. The 780 is a beast of a card. You can always download and run some benchmarking tools like Unigine Valley and Heaven, maybe 3dmark too. But beware when you compare with other 780 owners on this forum if your scores are lower. They have highly OC'd CPUs and 780s.

lol. Bucket of NOPE. I gotta remember that.

For the mmo's I mean as in fps lag.....games run fine but not locked at 60 and certainly not using 100% gpu or cpu and neither of those are budget components in my sig rig.

The sliders are stuck in my precision. Nevermind the low clocks in the screenie but precision isn't cooperating with me. Is there some setting I have to enable before I can oc?

which mmo are you playing, and what area on are you trying to play in, and is it a high populated server/shard/whatever that mmos name for servers are?

The sliders are stuck? thats very odd, ive never had that issue, maybe try reinstalling it. It should just let you adjust them right away.

oh also, try clicking on the numbers next to the sliders and just typing in a setting and hit enter then apply, see if that works.
