So I recently had a nice system upgrade. Went from an R9 280x to a GTX 970 (G1 Gaming edition, I could EASILY overclock THE **** out of this card)
From 8 gigs of RAM to 16
And a brand new 1TB hard drive for storing my video works.
Now, playing GTA V with the GTX 970 was awesome. in Sandy Shores, I never got below 65fps at 1080p with Ultra settings. But in the busy Los Santos roads, I sometimes got dropped to 50fps! I got the 970, which is aimed at 1440p, to ensure never-below-60 performance at 1080p. I will be testing some other games and I really want to believe that the game is just a bad port on Rockstars side, because where I live, the 970 is 450$
