GTA5 has pretty much sold me on buying a new computer. Mine runs it ok, but it's like 5-6 years old, and I know it can look better...


What CPU are you running?

An i7 960

Hmmm. I'm running an i7 2600K, 16GB Ram, and a 780ti, and I am almost running the game full-tilt-boogie 45-60fps. Depending on what video card you're running, that is probably the only upgrade you'll need IMHO. Your CPU has better memory bandwidth, but requires a bit more power, but overall performance is 'just about the same'. If you can swing it, the 980ti is probably right around the corner.


Yes. Latest rumor is as early as the middle of next month. :O That would make sense if they're afraid of the 390x stealing some of their customers. They'd want to jump out ahead of it.

The only thing that significantly reduced any nagging stutter or hitches occasionally that I saw, was disabling the user radio station. (Deleting or moving all the shortcuts out of the user music folder)

Why aren't you running an SSD?

Looks interesting, but watching the video I can't help but want another Interstate 76 game.

Yes! This needs to happen. i'82 was a huge letdown. That game wasn't even finished. i'76 was one of my favorite games when I was wee.

Running it on my new MSI GTX 980 everything maxed out (except MSAA, have that on 4x just to be safe.. I don't want it to ever even remotely drop under 60 fps you see).

The game runs GREAT! Also: NO MORE AIMING PROBLEMS! Somehow my GTX 680 caused it or somehow lower fps has some unusual impact on the mouse.

Someone (Verno?) asked how long the loading is when swapping between characters. GOOD NEWS! It's as good as INSTANT!

Rockstar did a mighty fine job!!!!!!!!

I played this fucking thing for something like 20 hours straight. I took a 2 hour nap in the middle somewhere. Oh my god this game is glorious.

12k makes sense here. And yeah, it's probably the 3 4k monitors that is the main target.

Maybe, but the cost of the 4K monitors and the PC with the 3 Nvidia Titans or 980s to run them is $5000-$10000. That's a pretty tiny sliver of PC gamers.

That 40" Philips 4k monitor (which has generally great reviews) is under $900, so that helps...

I played GTA5 from around 5pm on launch day (Monday) to around 4am (holy shit! Time warp!), where I took about a two hour nap, and then got up and ate and went back to it until about 6pm. Holy shit. I took a personal day off of work just so I could do that. This game is fucking awesome. Still haven't tried the multiplayer. I don't plan to until I complete the story.

I have experienced no issues thus far, aside from an odd resolution change when I alt-tabbed. I came back and it had changed back to the resolution I had set before. I think this was because I didn't exit the game using that resolution, so it fell back as safety precaution of some sort. I'm pretty sure it stuck where I want it once I quit though.

I'm using a 5 year old videocard (3gb GTX580), but the game still runs pretty damned good once I turn some of the settings down. Initially, I had everything completely maxed out at 2304x1440, and it looked absolutely amazing. Obviously, I had to turn it down though, because it was pretty unplayable. Once I did, I've got it running super smooth and still looking better than consoles. I can't wait for my 980ti.

11520 x 6480, I presume.

"frame-rate dependent on PC hardware"

Yes, yes I imagine it is.

Triple SLI Titan Blacks MAY get 5fps!

And presumably heat your house for the winter.


No. AMD doesn't make the Titan.

There are almost 1000 people chatting here at this very moment, which has been slowly ramping up in the days and weeks prior as the hype slowly builds.

They also have a Social Club crew that currently has a LOT more people in it than the Blue's News crew.

I wish I bought GTA V on Steam

I finally got all the preload files on my computer, no thanks to Rockstar's truly pathetic downloader. I had to torrent 30% of the files and place them in the GTA V folder for it to finish up.
Before that, it had finished downloading in full, then reverted back 20 gb and started from there

Just unbelievably amateur setup software from Rockstar

Are you kidding? It downloaded super fast for me. I got it in just over two hours. It did slow down to like 300kbps at one point, but it was a server issue I think. Once I restarted the downloader, it gave me a better connection and sped right up to ~10mbytes/s again.

Only an ignorant little kid who hasn't played any of the Witcher games could say it's anything like Skyrim. The two are so completely different. The only similarities are it's a fantasy third person RPG (although The Witcher is just barely RPG territory). The comparison stops there.

... No. It only takes 3 hours to complete the main story quest in Skyrim. This means that TW3 should have considerably less "fluff" than Skyrim.

Both Blue and ForgedReality seem to misunderstand what this 25 hours for a speedrun thing implies.

Wat? You can complete the main story of Skyrim in ~4 hours without using any bugs/cheats/etc. How is that smaller than skyrim, when they're saying that this is the main story of witcher 3 minus dialog.

No you both all three are misinterpreting. I don't give a shit about speedruns. I'm talking about the 200 hours if you do everything. I'm on my first playthrough of Skyrim with like 400 hours. I haven't even picked sides yet.

a full playthrough of the RPG sequel will take 200+ hours if you chose to accept all the game's side-quests and extra activities

So isn't this basically GalCiv 3, just with different names?

Did you never play the StarCon games?

This would be awesome, but I don't know if it could be the same game without the Spathi, Orz, Suppox, Yehat, etc. :\

60 Gig. Heh. Yeah, I'm gonna go ahead and say that I'm never gonna download that...

I'd ponder getting the disc version, except it says DVD rom, which would mean it'd be on, what, 10 discs? So I think that's more a box where inside all they have is a download code...

It would come on a single Blu-ray, I'd imagine. But my download only took a couple of hours. It hit 10mbytes/s multiple times. It did dip to below 300k for I don't know how long, but I restarted the downloader, and it perked right back up.

The CPU load was apparent though while I was doing other tasks. I'd imagine that's part of the fail-safe in operation.

Also, disconnecting internet and changing your system clock does not allow the game to launch, if you were curious. Figured I'd try it anyway. It does still need to phone home to activate.

I'll wait for the Extended/Director's Cut/Whatever The Fuck Else They Decide To Call It to go on sale for $15. How would we already have two expansions, complete with play times, if they weren't planned and cut from the full title? I'm sick of this shitty trend. A lot of the stuff I've been seeing of this game makes me less than confident it will be a quality PC release anyway. Too busy playing GTA 5 at the moment to listen. XD

There will basically never be a MOBA you enjoy then, you are describing the core mechanics of the genre. It's also about map control, team fighting and a host of other things... but you don't seem to care.

And DOTA 2 is one of the best games I've played in a long time. It took a while to get into since I had never played (or heard of) a MOBA before, but once you start to understand those basic mechanics, and you start to actually get kind of good, it's one of the most rewarding experiences you can have. At the same time, it can be one of the most frustrating ones as well, and that comes down to the quality of your teammates and how willing they are to work together. There is nothing more discouraging than losing because one or two guys were dickheads the entire match and caused you to lose.
