  2. make sure you close any frames per second software and just let novabench run it. If I run FRAPS I usually get about 200 less FPS.

  4. Watched your video. That's a killer pc you got there. While running your nova bench tests try some without your fps software. I noticed on mine when I didn't use frames per second software my FPS was a lot higher, a few hundred frames actually. I was running fraps. With dual 980s you should be getting higher numbers and I think that is limiting you. Have you tried it without running the FPS software? After watching your video I went on and checked out your config. Jeeez that must have ran run over 3500! One thing I didn't like is their hard drive choices. solid state drives are fantastic but they stick you with a 5400 rpm storage drive that's not cool considering how much ppl are spending on a monster system unless I missed somewhere where you could add a 7200 rpm storage drive. You consider running raid 0 at all? Also have you ever put together your own system or have always just bought pcs pre built? Not that you are interested but a really cool website is for hardware stuff and peoples insane builds. Those 980s are sick tho and im crazy jealous. Here is my build which ive posted some 2300's on novabench. Id love to see what yours would come in on the Si software Sandra 2014 benchmark. I got ranked 115 out 70 thousand plus but im sure you would be in the 70's to 80s with that beast. Good luck with it man.
  5. So your at home pcs are likely purchased from stores prebuilt for 3 to 8 dollars. They give you a crappy processor, crappy memory, crappy 5400 rpm hard drives and running without a dedicated graphics card (just the one that is built into the processor). Laptops are tough because they aren't really workstations but more portable units not meant for hardcore use unless you spend well over 1500 for one. How to elevate your game. Build your own PC. Go to Look at peoples builds. Understand what each component does and how much a budget of 500, 1000, 1500, will get you for building a pc. The Nova Bench test. Ram Test. Get ram that is over 1600 mhz. The higher the MHz the faster the ram. I run 2400 gskill trident x (2x8) for 16 gigs of ram. bought for 134.99 CPU intels run stronger than AMD's. The K series intels are over-clockable. Which means you can run them over their factor settings. budget 4690k I-5 for 200 and monster is the 4790k for 300 at micro center. There are better ones but its unlikely most people don't need them. Graphics cards: you have to get a decent graphics card if you want frames per second. I would recommend the gtx 960 on a budget (170 to 200), the 970 or 980 if you got some cash to spend (300 to 500 and more). Hardware tests which is your Hard drive. The capacity over course higher is better. Use a solid state drive for quick speeds and better scores. But even if you have a rocking hard drive set you will still only get around 60 points in this benchmark. Samsung evo 850, 250 gigs go on sale for 100 bucks pretty often these days. You can run a raid set up which you would have to YouTube videos of what it is. But its definitely worth it if you can do it. I am building a little budget monster for kid on my soccer team and this pc will easily score over 1800 on this test for 8 hundred dollars. I could get cheaper parts and have it be for 740 or below. But quality is important. Bottom line is the most points come from your CPU and Graphics card. I built a pc recently that got ranked in SiSoftware Sandra's benchmark test 115th out of 75000 systems. I am still learning everyday and will never go back to buying a store bought computer and wont let my friends or family do the same. Budget build. My Build:
  6. check out for some ideas cards and all around information you need for gaming.
  7. I had a very similar problem trying to run games on my system which is newer and stronger than yours. I would make it about 10 minutes on ultra settings and the game would crash. I was upset cause how could this be, my computer is incredible. Well, it all comes down to the cooling of your equipment. You have to have your fan speeds jacked up if you are going to play graphically demanding games. SO, I set my fan speed up on my cpu and my gpu and presto, I can game as long as I wanted with Far Cry 3 and 4 running over 100 frames per second on my 144 Hz monitor.

Here is my setup if you guys care. 4790k over clocked to 4640 MHz EVO 850, 250 gig ssd, OCZ arc 100, 240 gig ssd. Running in raid 0 and a 1 TB 7200 Seagate HDD as a storage drive Asus hero vii motherboard, gskill trident 16 gig 2400 MHz memory, msi lightning 290x GPU, if you wanna see pictures and the build costs go to the link below. I am still learning how to overclock and all that fun stuff. I crashed the pc at least 15 times trying different things and had to reinstall windows 3 times. lol but its a learning experience. System was around 1350 to build.
