This is just me, but I do not game at 4K, or even use a higher resolution than 1080p @ 60 Hz.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I have read on one of these Witcher threads where a poster stated that he was 4 hours into the game, but 2 of those hours where tweaking settings and files. I was like that, constantly checking my settings and thinking it is time for an upgrade all of the time. It is a borderline obsession condition, if not right over the line. I realize that this is a personal thing that I go through and your miles may vary.

If I am running through a game and I felt the slightest stutter...oh, got change the settings. Draw distance isn't where I thought it would be...oh, settings menu time, or maybe let's check some game files. Textures not right...yep, you guessed it, pause/restart the game for setting tweaks. Not getting the FPS I wanted...oh, need a new GPU. Perhaps, I could use some more RAM or an SSD. However, I am slowly starting to realize that it is not worth my time, money and stress anymore and it is really taking me away from the enjoyment of gaming. It is a distraction and one that can put you hours down the rabbit hole.

I work on and with computers all day. I sit in front of 3 monitors and behind a mouse and keyboard all day long, when I am not in a computer. It is becoming harder and harder for me to sit in front of a PC when I am off of work. When I do, though, and I want to sit down to game, all of the stuff that I stated above happens and I wind up searching online, I get stuck reading discussion board posts and by time I know it gaming time is up. I have a family now, so my gaming time is limited. It is nice to just plop down on the couch and play without worry too much about what is going on under the hood.

Sorry, that was a bit of a rant. Anyhow, I will try to get back on topic. From what I have seen and read thus far, besides a couple of options, The Witcher 3 does not look drastically different from the PS4 version, although we were fed that it was going to look so amazing on the PC. Unless PC gaming starts to pull away, as it should, from the consoles (again, PS4 really), there is really no reason to dump that kind of money into upgrading your rig. Unless, of course, that is your hobby and you want to dump that kind of money into your rig.

Anyhow, that was a "I just had my morning cup of coffee" ramble. Happy gaming, no matter what you choose!
Everyone has their preferences. The funny thing is im not as much of a gamer as i use to be. For me going extreme and getting the best experience technology has to offer is the thrill for me, sometimes even more than the game itself, lol. Tweaking is just half the fun. Consoles just feel like a way for the younger crowd to game. Plug and play, no changing how you experience the game, no mods, no extreme settings. For me the PC is for the big boys, that require some work and dedication to get rewarded with stunning visuals. All part of why its so satisfying for me. I have a family also and dont have that much time for gaming, but when i do i know its the best experience possible. But to each is his own, like i said, everyone has their preference. thumb.gif

Swolern I have not tried either. I noticed the screenshots folder in the game directory so I am a bit confused why the lack of the ability to keybind.

And, none of the Fermi cards cost $1k either. I keep hearing that Nvidia can't optimize older gen once new gen is out, well da, anyone can advocate that point of view, particularly if it were Nvidia itself. But, what about leaving folks high and dry who bought Nvidia's high end flagship Kepler cards (Titan, Titan Black, Ti, Titan Z) , since Nvidia kept releasing its flagships a mere months before dropping optimization support for these flagships? Had people known that after dropping $1k on an Nvidia card, they will only get limited driver optimization support period, not many would have been so eager to buy these overpriced flagships.... Lol
This is why I decided to stay away from the Titan X hype train , and nor will I jump on the 980 Ti or whatever other subsequent high priced flagship Nvidia comes out with... tongue.gif
Unless Nvidia clearly declares the optimization support period in writing on the box of the card, or I have done my own satisfactory due diligence on the optimization support period for Nvidia's cards , I am not going anywhere near their products for the foreseeable future. tongue.gif
Would hate to think how crappy it would have be for me as a consumer if I was further locked into Nvidia's ecosystem by buying into a Gsync monitor... would have been double whammy for me on the downside... lol

Seeing as how everyone is pitching in on how well the high-end is running (or not) I'll list whats happening on the low end. I've had to RMA my sig 780 and while waiting for it am back on SLI 460 1GB's. Yup GF104 baby. Pain in the arse to get some of the modern game running without hitting the vRAM limit but TW3 does quite well in caching to the SSD. Get around 45fps average everywhere including combat with rare drops to 27-30 if something special is going on during a cutscene (wild hunt cutscene frost effect).

No v-sync
Unlimited frames
1080p 120Hz Lightboost
Fullscreen
No Hairworks (normally a single 460 would take care of it as a dedicated physx card)
Background characters: Low
Shadows: Low
Terrain: High
Water: Low
Grass: Medium
Texture: High
Foliage Visibility: Low
Detail Level: High

Motion Blur: Off
Blur: Off
Anti-Aliasing: Off
Bloom: On
Sharpening: On
Ambient Occulsion: SSAO
Depth of Field: Off
Chromatic Aberration: Off
Vignetting: Off
Light Shafts: On

I honestly thought I would not be able to play this game until my 780 came back without it looking terrible but so far its playing sufficiently well. I'm using 352.82 as I need the SLI profile and I haven't tested any of the other settings to see if I could make it look better without sacrificing any frames (water and shadows could possibly be bumped up).

As a frame of reference my 460's are clocked at 810MHz on the core, stock voltages, 672 fermi cuda cores versus a GTX 580's 512 cores but with only 1GB vs 1.5GB of vram. This roughly puts it somewhere around/above a 660ti without the 2GB memory. I hope that 660ti users are getting near what i am and that any trickle down performance gain in drivers hits fermi as well.

I agree that everyone has their preferences. I don't necessarily agree with the "big boy" part, though. I know that it your take and personal opinion, so I hope I do not come across as attacking you. I have been a PC gamer for a long time, and up until this point I felt the same way. I was also chasing the ghost, i.e. extreme settings and extreme hardware. I agree. At one point, all that configuration and tweaking was fun, but now, to me, it actually hinders my personal gaming experience. What is the point in all of that right now? We have game developers that do not want to separate, graphically, from the consoles. Well, a huge and drastic separation like it should be, anyway. Why should I continue to worry about tweaks and hard configurations when it doesn't really matter?

Are there many kids that play on consoles? Sure. However, that doesn't mean that it is any less "big boy" than playing on a PC. I would wager a bet that there are many PC to PS4 converts out there that switched because of the simplicity factor, who no longer worry about mods, graphic settings or anything else that goes on under the hood. As I stated in my original post, I am in or in front of a computer all day long for work. I think now I want to not worry about anything on the PC. I just want to simply sit down and play.

Many people I have this discussion with will tell me to just set it and forget it, but we PC gamers know that it not going to work for many of us. For me personally, if I am gaming in front of my PC and something happens that I don't like, I am going in! Consoles, I don't have to worry about that and I won't care. Hooking it up to a TV is not an option for me and I do not wish to build another PC so that it is small enough to keep in my family room's entertainment center.

I guess the "best gaming experience possible" is subjective. I know many people who have consoles and they have the best gaming experience possible...for them. For me, right now I am not having the best gaming experience possible, so I think it is time to switch it up a bit until I can see some major differences, enough to justify the money and time I will spend, I think I am going to jump ship.

You are right, though. Everyone looks at it differently and there is not right or wrong, so long as you enjoy gaming no matter what platform you play on.

Thank you for your reply!

Is it just me or does it feel like the game is constantly "rubber banding". (probably not the right term - but it doesn't show up on the frame rate counter)

Just run in circles and watch how quickly the ground moves. It's like normal... normal... normal... slow... fast .... normal... normal... normal... slow... fast... etc.

That sounds very much like microstutter to me. Not experiencing that on my rig. This game is incredibly smooth for me, even in the areas where FPS drops down to around 40.

I'm not running SLI though since I'm on 347.88 drivers. I wonder maybe it has to do with G-Sync duplicating frames when it drops below 30fps. With a single card I am right at that borderline.
