I built a pc a month or so ago, and this is my first ever desktop pc. I had never gamed on a pc until now.
I played the heck out BF3 on the Xbox 360, so I went straight to the humble bumble download and started playing BF3.
But actually since building my pc and now I have been a little busy and went on vacation as well so I really haven't played a lot of BF3 or BF4 beta.
So I honestly don't know what to look for as far as if the game is operating properly or not. So far it seems okay though for me, BF3 and BF4 beta (though I've had dropouts and whatnot on the beta...just figure it is a beta).
4770k (no overclock besides the basic boost or whatever)
16gb Corsair Vengeance Pro 1866 (basic Profile for 1866 / no overclock)
EVGA Classified 780 (no overclock...actually I don't think I have downloaded Precision X or whatever) (currently using the 327.23 driver)
Windows 8 (not sure how it works, but I guess a free update to 8.1 goes live on Oct. 17th so I guess I will jump to that in a couple days)
SSD for my BF games
I figure for a while I will not mess with overclocking until I start to understand computers a little more, so that is why I have not overclocked anything yet.
I really was not aware that there are beta drivers for my 780. But going to EVGA's website I see they list in their notes the 331.40 as "An essential update for all GeForce GTX users jumping into the Battlefield 4 beta, 331.40 beta ensures maximum performance and system stability in the shooter’s eagerly anticipated pre-release test.". So I guess I will update to it. Is just downloading it from the EVGA site is the best place? http://www.evga.com/support/download/default.aspx
