Ok thanks for the feedback.
I may look into getting a new card but being so close to DX12 I may just wait a bit longer.
Other than AC I didn't notice any major frame rate issues in other games.

No problem.
I'd just wait for the next gen cards at very least. No need to do a minor jump up at this time with them just around the corner if not mistaken.

There is nothing (affordable or that makes sense) really "around the corner" at the moment. This year will be another pretty boring one because we're stuck on 28nm.
nVidia will release another very expensive Titan-like GPU based on GM200 in spring and later on probably a 980Ti based on the defective GM200s. Both are above the current GPUs so this will not change anything for the lower offerings. The only change re current GTX 970s and 980s is that both will probably be offered in 8GB VRAM variants some time later this year.
AMD is rumored to release a 380X/390X with HBM in Q2. Thanks to HBM and watercooling, this will probably be a prohibitively expensive GPU as well, competing either with the Titan GM200 or the 980Ti.

If anything truly new will be coming this year at all, then maybe at the very end of the year if GloFo manage to ship a new 14nm FinFET AMD GPU by then.
nVidia is sticking with TSMC, so there will definitely be no truly new GPUs this year, since according to TSMC, 16nm FinFET won't be ready before 2016.
If anyone is wondering what happened to 20nm, it's long been cancelled since TSMC was not able to offer the GPU makers a high powered 20nm process. The 20nm node is stuck at low power for mobile chips from Apple et al.
That may be true but if they release high end cards that will replace the current 980/290 series.
I am hoping that will lower the prices on current high end cards which will trickle down to the 970.
The Gigabyte 970 I am looking at getting is "on sale" for $430 here in Canada which is a bit too much.
If it would go for around $350 ~ $380 I'd probably pull the trigger.

Well, that won't happen at least not for nVidia. They only got GM200 and that will be the new Titan and maybe 980Ti. Why should they lower prices of the GTX 980 and 970 and ruin their precious margins if they only release parts way above those lower offerings? They won't. And there won't be anything to replace GTX 980 or 970 this year.

The only reason nVidia might adjust their pricing is if AMD's refresh lineup in spring (e.g. R9 370) shakes things up a bit but I think that's unlikely. Why should the financially struggling AMD shake up the market with some huge discounts? It's more likely AMD will price their parts only slightly lower than nVidia's current offerings.

And the high end R9 390X with HBM and watercooling... it'd be crazy by AMD if they would give it away. And why should they? If nVidia has a $999 to $1299 Titan, then AMD might as well join the fun if they have a GPU that performs as well or maybe even better.

Sticking with my entirely capable GTX580 until that happens. XD

Yeah, we've always known Seagate was fucking terrible. They got worse once they bought Maxtor and started using their assembly tech. I'll never buy a Seagate. Western Digital has always been my go-to. I've never had a single WD drive fail in 30+ years of building PCs.

Maybe this time they'll actually bother to install it on a PC to see if it actually works?

There's no need, anything slapped in a box with DA on it sells. It worked for the second installment.

Call of Duty: Dragon Age

I can see it happening...

Fuck you, cabbies. Fewer of you shitty fucks on the streets would be a glorious day in America. All of you pricks drive like fucking shit, and cops don't mess with you for the most part. It's amazing most of you even have fucking licenses. You're starting to sound like Comcast. "We're the worst in the world, and we don't like competition, so let's shut everyone else down."

I caved and pre-ordered GTA5, but not from Steam. I didn't want stupid San Andreas. I'm so glad I opted for L.A. Noire. Such an amazing game! How did I not play this before now?

Never did get the fuss, shuffling around the environment untill your pad buzzes is about the only way to play it ..... (./grin).

I haven't had any issues with kb+m... Most enjoyable game I've played in a while. But, of course, I'm a sucker for a good story/adventure. I used to love the old Sierra/LucasArts games.

I like the idea of discounting it though - even down to $49.99, or find a way to discount it for those of us who already purchased it on another system. Not a huge deal, but should be done anyway.

Why?

It's a different product. Don't choose to buy a new product if you feel you need your feeling of entitlement satisfied.

So, honestly, I'm wondering why you think "it should be done anyway". Should you get a discount on this year's model of car just because you bought last year's model too? You buy a house, you think the next house you buy should give you a discount too? Seriously? Tons of work went into the re-releases. What did YOU do to help?

The seven-layers-of-always-on-because-we-fucking-distrust-our-customers-DRM has me more disappointed than the delay.

I was all ready to buy that shit on day zero, but now I don't know. ...I may buy it, but I'll wait until there's a working crack at this point. >:\

Both of those links should be titled "Entirely Average Women of CES 2015".

Not impressed. I need more sexual exploitation.

I'd be quite happy with a demo - already completed it on PS3 but wouldn't mind seeing the upgrades for an hour or so.

You're playing Grand Theft Auto wrong if you're playing for the story alone.

It's simple. They're not spending any money marketing the PC version.

Why spend money marketing it to an audience of pirates. It's a PS4/Xbone port anyhow, right? No specific PC development. No marketing, just get it out there. Make what we can.

I'll be very curious to see how well it runs on PC. The previous PC GTA was unoptimized. Seems a lot of you have forgotten that.

Actually, the subject has come up quite frequently about the port quality of GTA IV and I don't think many PC gamers have forgotten that.

The advancements with the RAGE engine and it's ports to PC since then give a healthy dose of optimism to the subject though, with the latest Max Payne (also RAGE engine) being, by all measurements, an excellent port to pc that performed very well.

Also, they patched the game up post-release and it got running excellently on my machine. I even boosted the settings beyond what the game would allow via that commandline hack. Never any issues once it was patched. If 5 doesn't run that great out of the gates, I have no doubts that Rockstar will make it right.

The fears of a postponement...

What fucking fears of postponement? Who the fuck thought it was going to be delayed? There has been absolutely zero indication to that effect. We've known it would be released on the 27th for freaking MONTHS. Seriously, this knee-jerk misinformation is just giving the PC haters their undeserved attention.

I guess Valve should've been working on Half-Life 3 instead of <insert random thing here> department.

That's just it though. Steam Machines was just a distraction; a cover for what they were really doing. Basically, Half-Life 3 confirmed!

Nothing from PewDiePie should be legal. Annoying as fuck. I don't see what the big attraction to him is. Maybe if he didn't play up his annoying YouTube character so much, it wouldn't be so bad. I can't stand him though.
