Also, wish you would of said something about getting it earlier. Could of saved you some money. Got my copy off of cd-keys for $32.
Oh and as far as getting better performance in console mode I can't imagine how that could be possible, all Hivemind is, is Kodi being auto ran as soon as windows boots. If anything all it is doing is taking up more resources. I got around the whole "console" mode by getting an app called Controller Companion (you can get it in the Steam Store and you really should!) lets you navigate all of windows with a game controller. I use my xbox one controller for everything. In fact, you can even type with it which is pretty cool.
Don't forget you are losing some frames too while using recording software, Doom generally runs at a fairly solid 50fps for me with the 860m OCed in High settings and yeah, I couldn't tell a difference in Ultra and High. Don't let PC elitist fool you when it comes to having stuff maxed out... if you have to take a screenshot to dissect better image quality from one setting to another you aren't going to notice while you're playing. I think a lot of that is from *******s trying to justify paying stupid prices for bleeding edge PC components.
