Oh you'll be fine. 780Ti is still a really fast card. The rest of the specs are top notch too so I don't see why you wouldn't be able to max out most settings.
I mean the 780Ti is faster than the 970 around the same speed as the 980 in certain games.

Thanks for info. If you're wrong, you're going to hear about it. Wink

Call me a dreamer, but I hope the 'Recommended System Requirements' will come 'close' to running at max settings. Pray

I'm running an i7-2600K (OC'd @ 4.8GHz), 780ti, and 16GB RAM. Thinking2

Looking forward to this. Crossing my fingers they develop this as well, and beyond, as they did with DE: HR.

Going to have to play through DE: HR Director's cut, which I still haven't played yet to see how much they improved over the vanilla version of DE: HR. I think it has been long enough to where a play through will be fresh enough.

.....And with the base they built with this game they are now able to expand it in any way possible, not counting the brilliant mods out there like the SimCopter mod for instance.

^^^^^^This^^^^^ is where the game will really shine IMHO.

SimCopter, that's great, but I don't think I could fly as well of what is demonstrated in that video though.

I haven't installed this mod yet, but looks pretty cool as well.

Juvenile (adjective):

Do you honestly think I was asking you to copy and paste a dictionary definition to me? Or is it more likely I was asking you to point out what exactly about the advertising scheme struck you as juvenile or childish?

This is what you wrote: I'm curious what do you mean by "juvenile"? It doesn't seem crude or in any way childish. Not really my thing either, but I'm not really seeing "juvenile."

So, you asked me what I meant by "juvenile". Since it can be defined/interpreted in different ways, I quickly and simply provided you with my use of the adjective.

I was surprised at how many people there were on Twitch yesterday for this. There are 3500 people watching right now and it's a weekday morning in the US and an hour until the next "vote."

Didn't realize that many people were into this shit.

I can appreciate new and fresh marketing ideas, but this is pretty weak and juvenile.

I've really enjoyed this game so far, especially being the first Sim game I've ever purchased and/or played <gasp!>; therefore, I don't have anything to compare it to, but the game seems to be 'very' well done.

There was some backlash towards the DLC packs you announced to launch alongside the game. How did the studio respond to that?

Phil [Robb, creative director] takes all this stuff very personally. We have a promise to the community on our website: ‘we’re gamers, making games, for other gamers’. It’s a difficult space, just talking about DLC at all, because I think gamers are so fatigued with the typical DLC cycle… but I think if [our strategy] was to be looked at objectively, you’d see there are a tonne of options about what you can have and how you can get it, and hopefully it will still feel very inclusive, even if you never buy DLC. It’s important to Phil and the rest of the studio to make sure that we’re never separating the community.


What a load of crap! It is almost as bad as Pete Carol's rhetoric and justification for a goal line pass play on 2nd with a Super Bowl win on the line.

From a quick read of that article, it almost sounds like they released the game early for additional cash flow so they could continue\complete development.

They cancelled Deadwood to free up funds to make Rome...which was nowhere near as good and only lasted 2 seasons.

It's a sad sad shame as it was and still is one of the best shows ever made. Hell On Wheels is an excellent western on AMC but nowhere near the standard Deadwood set. At least it's going to get a proper finale though.

Ah hah, I didn't know that was why it wasn't renewed....interesting. I agree with you it being one of the best series ever made. If I recall correctly, they were talking about a movie to properly end the series, but that is all long gone by now.

Yeah, I do like Hell on Wheels, but didn't the first time I watched it, which is probably because I was hoping for a Deadwood. The second time I gave it a try, I was hooked.

I'm happy that Mad Men is back, especially with Better Call Saul ending its season tonight. The opening episode was intriguing, but leaves me already unhappy with the plan to end the series with a seven episode arc. This reminds me too much about how they truncated the final season for another favorite show, Boardwalk Empire, which left it feeling a little rushed. On the other hand, AMC already did this once before with Breaking Bad, which didn't seem to cause a problem, so I'll just try to put my concerns aside and enjoy.

Yeah, reminds me of Deadwood HBO series too, which abruptly ended due to lack of renewal. Sigh....

I'd love to know what sort of a hardware you'd need to get the kind of details shown in the trailer running at 1080p-60fps.
I doubt my GTX760 will cut it.

Yeah, I was thinking the same thing; however, unless they've bumped them up recently, I recall the 'recommended' system requirements being pretty reasonable:

•CPU Core i5-2500T 2.3GHz or Phenom II X4 975
•GPU: GeForce GTX 480 or Radeon HD 6970
•RAM: 6GB
•OS: Windows 7,8,8.1 64bit
•HDD Space: 20GB

/shrug

Oh, and if the game actually looks that good on my PC (i7 2600K & 780ti), I'll be a happy gamer.

Where did you get those specs? The recommended specs listed on the GTA V website and Steam are:

Processor: Intel Core i5 3470 @ 3.2GHz (4 CPUs) / AMD X8 FX-8350 @ 4GHz (8 CPUs)
Memory: 8GB
Video Card: NVIDIA GTX 660 2GB / AMD HD 7870 2GB
Sound Card: 100% DirectX 10 compatible
HDD Space: 65GB

I really wish they would have some sort of standard for the minimum and recommended specs, say 720p30fps for min and 1080p60fps for recommended.

I have a GTX 660OC, but I'm still using a first gen i5 750. I started picking parts for a new PC build back in November, but never committed to it. I'm wondering if I should wait and see how my system handles before upgrading, or just go for it. I'm only concerned because the current generation CPU and chipsets have been out a while, and it seems about time for something new to be coming out soon. I'd be kind of pissed to build a new system with current gen parts, then next month they come out with new shit.

@Cl1mh4224rd & jimnms:

It was information I pulled from a quick search (article from January 2015), so thanks to both of you for the updated information.
