im having issues with my 660 and the new GPU update. Im always lurking around here reading stuff. I find it fun
. So i have finally got a question that i couldn't find myself so im sorry if this has been answered. Im a battlefield fan, i love the game always have.
I run a 660 TFer right now from MSI. Its been a good card till now. I updated to the R331 driver for bf4 and now i am noticing that my GPU wants to run 90-99% load...even on games that use to run it on 40-50% loads on ultra....( WoW being the other game) If i turn on Vsync it lowers it a bit. Im not to worried about it being that hi as the temps stay 50-60. The issue is i was running bf4 beta just fine...now its seems to have issues with somethings.
I did overclock it a bit to try and help it out( not sure if the MSI 660 twinfrozer can be OC safely being that its OC from factory ? i did it with MSI afterburner. What ends up happening is the screen will flash and the clock/mem OC gets put back to defaults...Its random and doesn't happen all the time...
I felt my GPU was being really strong till all this started happening. Im sure BF4 is taxing and needs work. Im just a little concerned now. I dont have the cash to upgrade to a 780 like i would like, i am about to buy another 660 tho and go SLI unless you guys tell me otherwise. I think that's about the cheapest way to make the system stronger gpu wise without going homeless.
Please feel free to chim in on weather or not im headed down the right path, if i should go back to earlier driver. im open to any suggestions that dont include me buying into the 700 series just yet
. i need about 6 months more out of this system and id like to enjoy BF4.
i know this has gone off topic
just thought i throw it out there.
