Windows 7: how do I optimize my PC for gaming?

yeah I dont think it does need it, but its what they recommend. no game is truely optimised for even quad cores yet. bring on directx 12 for us nvidia owners! unless mantle goes cross card brand!!

op look at titanfall if you want a fairly decent modern game. the requirements are very low! then again even on max setting it still looks rubbish lol

Have you guys peruse the ubi watchdogs forum? it is full of complaints... from not being able to install to stutters, lags, freezes and the likes.

All points to normal ubi's ways of doing business but the most interesting part is that it seems the game is another bad coded port to pc... even though they claimed it would be done on a PC and then ported, hence, the heavy requirements.

I gotta say, it speaks volumes the amount of sheep out there buying games sight unseen just because they saw a trailer and it looked awesome!

Yea and not to mention it looks nothing like in the E3, they totally downgraded and released is with problems which is going to need major patching, hell even that may not even fully fix it.

Hm basicly it dosen't matter what PC you have if they don't optimise their games.

I finished Watch Dogs at low-med settings and it's poor game not worth 60$...

I even added another 4gb ram it helped with shuttering(not lag) so i was able to play it fine but it was still ood thing to save-quit after 1-2 hours memory leak or something.

Basicly the physics,ai,graphics everything is worse than in gta4,sleeping dogs or any other game from 2012-2014 no joke...

Im suprised people with 8 cores,16gb ram and titan cards with 3gb ram got problem to run this in ultra.

Also game got minimum 6gb ram required and yet with 8gb it never did use more than 4.5gb and funniest was message while gaming i was running low on ram while still had 3.5gb left

So all the hardware in ps4,xboxone is just for lazy developers so they don't have to optimise their games so my advice don't buy from ubisoft and support companies like Paradox they make wonderfull strategy games and optimise them.

So if that's what next-gen is about i think gaming is dead...

Edit:

@BDani use gamebooster and in nvidia pick every option to max preformance.

Insted of crapy Watch Dogs effects disable them all and use for example SweetFX.

Too put it simply Watch Dogs is not optimised at all.

Oh and impotant if you have 1-2gb vram on gfx use medium textures(lowest settings) if you have 3gb use high settings(medium) and for highest you need more than 3gb vram no idea if there is even such card...

I'm running Watch Dogs at ultra on a single reference 780 and apart from a bit of stutter when I'm driving it's fine. The 770 has a 4GB version and the 780 has a 6GB version, Titans have 6GB upwards depending on which version you buy, and some Radeon cards have more than 3GB I'm sure. So yes there are cards that have more than 3GB VRAM but Watch Dogs doesn't need it for highest settings.

NO and NO.

First of all if you get shutter it's still not fine...tip from me restart game once it starts to shutter it's prodobly memory leak helped me a least...

Secound there is no card with more than 3gb vram even with sli you got only 3gb becouse card needs to mirror information so you still get 3gb...

Third you think game is running fine when it's not look at ubi forums people with a lot better rigs got problems and your running this game fine on Ultra

Also it's suppose to use minimal 6gb ram when it's not going over 4.5GB but only 2.6GB was Watch Dogs...

It's not optimised can't you understand that?

Edit: I guess there is no point in argue about this **** game they made promises and they diden't deliver simple right? i did get from friend a copy of Sleeping Dogs and it's better in every way even has better Ai so question is where is this all hardware power going? answer is simple developers are lazy.

It started stuttering after I'd turned everything up to ultra, it was fine with three or four settings on high instead.

If I can be bothered I'll ShadowPlay it. I'm not really bothered if you believe me or not to be honest.

And? That's a bonus isn't it?

Yes I can. I have read people are having trouble with it, I'm not saying they're not. I'm saying I'm not. I never said that because I'm getting decent performance 'it's fine' either so please don't put words in my mouth. This isn't the Battlefield forum.

OK i was wrong about gfx with more than 3GB vram.

EDIT: Ok i cheaked my shop and i only see 3gb vram cards so there are no better cards at the market atm so i was not wrong still buying this for 1 game is a joke 3gb vram should be for multi monitor setup right?

NOPE.

Earlier i was running it with 4GB ram it was unplayable so? why if it's not even using 3gb of ram and adding another 4gb that's never used removes shuttering? it's like a big virus to slow down your PC.

In my opinion they did this to PC version so people buy new cpu,more ram and better gfx. Intel,Nvidia,Amd guys bribed them.

I give this game 3 to 5 patches at the most and more than likely, like they always do, they will not fix all of their problems and even ruin other things that were working fine... Ever since 2005 with Vegas and GRAW UBI has gone down the tubes... Huge potential game, lazy and greed for money has stop them from accomplishing that potential.

Now, being said that, on this day and age, with technology at your finger tips, why people are getting bamboozled into buying things sight unseen is beyond my comprehension so I must admit that if you are constantly nagging about this type of games, you must not care about loosing your money all that much

Finished WD yesterday and hit uninstall button...so i really don't care if they fix it in 3 to 5 patches that might never happen...

Also you can't fix something that's fundamentaly broken i doubt ubi will update engine to at least gta4 level...

This is what i mean https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JGRsrFdwb2c

Also there are no reflections in windows and when you shoot water there are no ripples...

Ok found videos of those...

How can you fix this if whole game is broken?
