@mb: well to be honest i used to read up on it and there are conflicting accounts. but it seems like most things, everyone is different. but for me and at least my circle of friends, while we may be able to see a difference after 80hz, we cant see a difference past 120hz. while it may not be a gimmick to everyone, i just see it as another reason to needlessly jack up prices on displays for these increasingly minor enhancements

well what have you used to try and see past 120 hz?

A tv with "800 Hz YO!" functionallity?

or a gaming monitor with 144 hz?

do you have another computer to test the graphics card in?

if not, try another pci-e slot, incase the primary one got filled with stuffs.
And of course, make sure the pci-e teeth on the graphics card are all clean.

According to Ubisoft, the game never got a visual downgrade.

They stand by that claim even today.

watch dogs is special....

the game has 90 degree railway turns, the game looks like gta 3 from certain angles, even on ultra.

and it actually works terrible with phenom II architecture, so, that's the main issue here.

Even a 8320 is going to be a bottleneck actually, check this benchmark out.

They got graphics cards tested earlier in that article too.

sorry for the crappy phone quality.

Also I decided to check my even viewer and find out if I could glean any info. here it is.

You should be sorry for the gangster style 90 degree photo, not the quality.Hehe jokes aside, those values look much better than what hwmonitor reported, this suggests your power-supply being okay, at-least in that snapshot.

I couldn't parse anything specific out of those event viewer logs however.

@garris: one thing you could check when you have time, is if the voltages in uefi align with the ones that HWMonitor report.

if you could grab a photo that would be great,
it is supposed to be under M.I.T and then PC Health Status

looks like this

@garris: The voltage values there look pretty strange from a first glance, kind of hard to know if hwmonitor is doing a bad job at monitoring or if the voltages really are that wack.
at least the voltages are not fluctuating much between min and max, but some of them seem to be off by quite alot, like the 3.3 volt being at 2 volts.

temps look fine, man, you're running that fan on the graphics card pretty fast aren't you?
What kind of crashes are we talking about, multiple games crashing to desktop without errors, with the same error?

Or are we talking blue-screens here?
