@Heil68: Manticore?

I own everything, I know it's quite the modern day marvel.

You realize a manticore requires you to be impartial to all systems?

  • MANTICORES are those who support all systems. It's a rarely used term. They are called manticores because they are a mixture of a lot of animals. Now you see "multi-system owners" in place of this formerly common name, although don't be mistaken, a multi-system owner is not impartial towards all systems like a manticore.

And we all know you partake in the Church of Godny.

I know and I am. I can't help it if SONY is the current gen 8 console 8 leader. :D

Well good thing I have a gaming PC brah., cuz I read that shit and responded...awwww yeahhhhh

Owning a "gaming pc" doesn't mean you aren't a console gamer. It does, however, kind of prove the point about PC gaming being the superior gaming platform.

I'm a true gamer and game on everything, being the a true manticore.

uh huh,

You don't tell us that, we observe (or don't observe) that about you.

I've gamed probably more on PC that most people in this thread..lol

BUT being the true GAMER I am, that should come at no surprise.

@mikhail: But playing games on a PC sucks.

/thread.

Is it because your filthy console peasant eyes can't see more than 30 fps?

LOL! Maybe...

It's because:

  • PC games, especially PC exclusives, have a UI that is designed for the desktop, not the couch
  • I don't like gamign with a KB/Mouse.
  • I don't want to have to skunk around the 'net for driver updates
  • I work all day on a PC, I do not want to spend my leisure time on one, too.

From a technical standpoint, PCs are better than consoles. That's a fact of life. However, I *prefer* gaming on consoles. So, I am willing to have lower resolutions, fewer frame rates, and pay money for online than sit at a desk and play games on my PC.

I know exactly what that is, and it does not solve the problem.

Go ahead and try seeing a PC-centric minimap on a TV. It sucks.

It's not that it's a marvel; it's more like a giant waste of time. I couldn't imagine having such a boring and non-eventful life that I would even have the time for gaming like this. Are you disabled or something?

Nope..100% #LEGENDARY

I have:

CPU: i5 760

RAM: 12GB 1333

GPU: GTX 680

Explain to me how that shit is old as dirt and why it can't run Farcry 3 at 1080p. Thats not a bad system. I have lots of RAM and my GPU is old compared to when the game came out.

My CPU is still good even though it was a couple of years olld when FC3 came out.

Again...I had a decent system at the time of FC3...and it couldn't run it at 1080p.

Same thing happened when I bought a new PC for HL2 and DOOM3. I bought all the latest parts....couldn't run those games at the highest settings...then 2 weeks later...they came out with new shit.

PC snob alert. Is that you annoyed dragon?

PC lacks cohesiveness and failing to accurately convey how 'freedom' also means 'work' is misleading.

So we move further from 'objective' towards 'relative'.

For example, objectively PC is inferior to PS4 in the living room on the big screen.

Consider:

-Turnkey operability

-Unified hardware/ software design philosophy

-Superior form factor/power consumption/ performance/ price ratio or hardware bang for buck

-PC is incapable of offering single control solution for the living room. BP tries.

-PC generally lacks in local multiplayer

-PC is constrained to DD. Title availability in hard copy is limited.

So PC loses the battle for the living room, including ease-of-use, hw bang-for-buck, unified control solution, and quality of experience.

PC is most effective alone, at the desk, with parts strewn about and a stall of indie bundles at hand. PC is actually system of choice for peasants.

Something is wrong with your computer then.

My computer is weaker than yours and has no trouble running FarCry 3 at 1080p at ultra with SMAA.

Here's AmazonAngry in this thread in a nutshell:

  • Makes various claims about how people aren't PC gamers and how PC games are actually more expensive because people buy games they don't play
  • I show my Steam library
  • AmazonAngry says it's not good enough and demands my play time, I decline
  • AmazonAngry laughs and claims "victory over the herms"
  • Another user actually shows their Steam account, AmazonAngry ridicules them for having 100 hours played in Euro Truck Simulator 2.
  • Later, AmazonAngry is asked for his PSN - shows his library of games instead. When asked for his PSN, he changes the subject and just posts various reaction gifs because he "owned herms again lol"

That pretty much sums him up. Then of course we have Cranler with his typical trolling behavior of changing the subject, avoiding direct questions, bringing up things from other threads to start arguments with people, etc etc. In short, this thread is a complete mess due to the same 3 or 4 people that completely derailed it last time.

I fucking knew it.

There is nothing wrong with my computer. I don't look at porn or do any crazy shit on it.

I KNEW this was going to be the reply. It's the same thing I've gotten every time I've had a good system for the time being and couldn't run a game. Just like HL2 and DOOM3.

The excuse is always..."Something is wrong with your computer." Thats bullshit. My PC runs like clockwork and it wasn't from Best Buy or something. It runs lots of games a really good settings, but does not have the power to do every game.

FACT: there is nothing wrong with my computer and FACT: PC in general cannot do every game in 1080p.....I'm proof of that.

You guys don't have some grand awesome expertise on PCs that I don't that makes your computers run oh so much better than mine.

EVERY. SINGLE. TIME.....thats the excuse....."something is wrong with your computer." Bullshit. I've been in this situation before.

Edit: just yesterday...someone in another thread said FC3 was power hungry and had no problem with me not being able to run it at 1080p when I brought this up.

He didn't seem to care what system wins an argument so I'm more inclined to believe his point of view.

My fx6300 and r9 270 can play Farcry 3 @ 1080p with about 40 - 45 fps. Your gtx 680 is more powerful, so something is clearly wrong.

I'm sure you do....I'm sure theres been something wrong with my PC every time....from the start....from the warehouse.....yes....thats it.

I don't fucking believe you one bit.

If PCs are this finicky where I can't get FC3 to run at 1080p when not "hurting" my PC in anyway and it's bascially like it was from the warehouse.....then something is clearly wrong....with PC gaming.

Fact is...I could get a completely different answer from someone else....and thats how PC gaming goes.

What are you trying to do run 8x aa in FC 3? That's total overkill. 2x to 4x is a huge difference, 4x to 8x is a tiny difference.

6800 gt released before Doom 3 and easily ran the game at 60fps at 1280x1024 which was the standard res of that period.

Because a GTX 680 should be able to play FC3 in 1080p

I know from my own experience (with a GTX 670). And even this benchmark has the GTX 680 running FC3 at 1920x1200 (http://www.techspot.com/review/615-far-cry-3-performance/page3.html)

No...I never put on AA unless it's an older game which I know my system can run well. Acting like and assuming in front of everyone that I'm running everthing on with 8x AA just makes it look like you're trying to save face.

I have everything turned on or up.....except AA....and it runs at 1600x900 @ about 40-80fps.

40 in parts where it's dense or whatever....and 80 where theres nothing going on. If I turned it up to 1080p I would get like 20fps in parts which is shit.

I've also flagged posts that had outright namecalling or homophobic slurs in them, nothing was done about those either. It's been days.

It's fine though, if you guys want people to keep trolling and derailing topics then you've succeeded in that.

I have:

CPU: i5 760

RAM: 12GB 1333

GPU: GTX 680

Explain to me how that shit is old as dirt and why it can't run Farcry 3 at 1080p. Thats not a bad system. I have lots of RAM and my GPU is old compared to when the game came out.

My CPU is still good even though it was a couple of years olld when FC3 came out.

Again...I had a decent system at the time of FC3...and it couldn't run it at 1080p.

Same thing happened when I bought a new PC for HL2 and DOOM3. I bought all the latest parts....couldn't run those games at the highest settings...then 2 weeks later...they came out with new shit.

What are you trying to do run 8x aa in FC 3? That's total overkill. 2x to 4x is a huge difference, 4x to 8x is a tiny difference.

6800 gt released before Doom 3 and easily ran the game at 60fps at 1280x1024 which was the standard res of that period.

...you have a GTX 680 and it can't run Far cry 3 at 1080p? Are you serious? I have a GTX 670 and I've played Far Cry 3 at 1080p

yeah that's a good system Mr Dog. your system should be able to handle fc3 at 1080p. are you trying to run all the settings including the fps tanking ones?

i'm usually pretty selective with settings, but then again my display goes up to 144 Hz.

No...I never put on AA unless it's an older game which I know my system can run well. Acting like and assuming in front of everyone that I'm running everthing on with 8x AA just makes it look like you're trying to save face.

I have everything turned on or up.....except AA....and it runs at 1600x900 @ about 40-80fps.

40 in parts where it's dense or whatever....and 80 where theres nothing going on. If I turned it up to 1080p I would get like 20fps in parts which is shit.

What did you have post fx set to? Medium vs ultra looks barely different while the performance difference is gigantic.

I ran max settings except post fx med no aa and used sweet fx to reduce aliasing and got steady 60fps at 1080p. i have a 680 also.
