It's run perfectly so far but I've only had it for a month so that isn't much of a sample.

My MSI 970 4G is perfectly stable OC'd, in fact it still runs at lower temps/noise levels than the card it replaced. I can get mine way up to +150 core +500 mem stable. It is a fantastic card, I can't believe how quiet these things are even at load.
Thanks guys

Hey guys, when you're posting your systems please add what resolution/monitor your using. It makes a massive difference if you're playing at 1080, 1920, 1440, multi monitor, etc... this information is very useful to a guy like me planning to finally upgrade his dinosaur system (q9550@3.4ghz, 7870, 4gb ddr2 playing at 1920, it's been a glorious run with only a gpu upgrade but it's finally time).
I'm assuming at least 1080p, which is A-OK with me. 1080p with proper AA is absolutely fine as far as I'm concerned. And I play on a 42" TV four feet away

Not Darks but I've got it maxed out here too and it's sublime. I have a 3570k CPU OC'd to 4Ghz and the MSI 4G 970
Nice, I've also got a 3570k OC'd to 4Ghz

I was thinking about getting the MSI 970 but my MSI 570 OC hasn't been all that stable.
Have you encountered any issues?

Surprising that they're still going with the "skin an animal, and just pull a chunk of top sirloin out of it" routine.
I was also surprised by the hunk of meat you gain from "skinning" an animal.
A simple fur texture with a colour change would make a hell of a lot more sense.

Agreed, I just love the game so far, and on my GTX 970 everything maxed out on Ultra this game looks killer.
Darks what CPU do you have and what model of 970?

Yeah, it's true. There was a lot to be desired from the MP mod for JC2; it was easily repetitive.

But it was just that, a mod. Pretty impressive in that respect.

The JC2 MP mod is pretty bonkers, though. Upwards of 500 people in a server doing random crazy things.
Pairings and factions worked well, too, which saw giant faction battles or simply group road/boat/plane trips and exploration.

PC videos? Or console?
Here's a PC vid @ 60fps: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=oIvEBCHlOl8

OP's comment on FPS:

"The minimum frame rate I get is 40-42 fps but just for seconds... I think this game will run better with the day 1 patch"

AC4 was also done by Ubisoft Kiev. They basically do ZERO effort when they port shit to the PC. It's the laziest, most comically inept port you can possibly imagine, and Ubisoft keeps handing their games to these fuckers for the PC versions.
Sure, that studio is highly incompetent, but I'm surprised that AC:U runs so horribly across the board, on all machines.
Actually, I shouldn't be surprised with how Ubi is operating these days.

Looks like FC4 has a decent framerate, though - from the videos I've seen at least

Glad AC:U isn't at the top of the list, but the fact that it's close with such bad press is disconcerting

You could have addressed them before you put your fucking game on sale. You can also address them by firing every retard at Ubisoft Kiev, since they obviously can't tell a fucking PC from an Xbox 360.
The game isn't optimized for any system, period.
Every AC game I've played has run sub-par.

As a recent example, I tried AC4 on my 570 OC, 3570k with 16 gigs of RAM and it ran like shit on medium settings (sub 30 fps).
I booted up Advanced Warfare and it's 60fps on high.

Different games, with vastly different amounts of rendering and computing, but it doesn't matter. Ubisoft has never taken the time to optimize their games. Maybe it's the lack of proper occlusion, maybe it's unoptimized models... maybe it's sheer laziness and greed.

The more I hear about this game, the more my perspective changes on it.
Although the MP beta was basically a re-skinned BF4, with no real soul, the single player looks to be a lot better than previously thought.

Hopefully they make the MP portion more original and interesting than what was seen in the beta

Also looks like the AI is pretty terrible.
Wonder when studios will focus (or be able to - publishers) on actual upgrades to AI. Graphics are about where they should be for 2014, but AI is stuck in 1998

Hasn't everyone? That's my favorite way of gaining altitude before I start para-grappling my way around the island @ 90mph.
I was always partial to flying a heli up as high as possible, jumping out, then trying to catch up to it and get back in before it hits the ground.

Didn't think Avalanche would ever pull some bullshit like F2P, especially with the Just Cause series.

I have complete faith in these guys to deliver a great, super fun, PC game

I wish Wolfenstein had gone a little cheaper, so more folks would have jumped on it. Fantastic game.
I was going to jump on it, but figured I'd wait til xmas to get it. Might be cheaper.
I've got plenty to play in the meantime but... DAMN do I wanna play it
