I second the G500, is comfortable and has just the right amount of buttons.

@xxrangaxx: I'm assuming you are running win 7 or 8 so change the compatibility mode to Vista SP2 (XP will work but you won't get dx10 graphics). If you find you don't get sound effects in game go to your recording devices and enable Stereo Mix. They were the 2 issues I had with the game and now it runs perfectly.

While not eliminating the stuttering completely, this made a big difference for me. Now the stutters are less frequent and the fps drop is far less.

Setup: FX-8120 @3.8Ghz, EVGA SC GTX 660Ti

Quote of post for those that are interested and link

"We are aware of major performance and stability issues with GeForce GPUs running Tomb Raider with maximum settings. Unfortunately, NVIDIA didn’t receive final code until this past weekend which substantially decreased stability, image quality and performance over a build we were previously provided. We are working closely with Crystal Dynamics to address and resolve all game issues as quickly as possible.

In the meantime, we would like to apologize to GeForce users that are not able to have a great experience playing Tomb Raider, as they have come to expect with all of their favorite PC games."

It crashes for me at the campfire where you unlock fast travel. Tried turning off tessellation and no joy. Also tried turning off the exclusive fullscreen, v-sync, tried older and beta drivers and several other 'fixes' and still no luck.

Nvidia have said they are aware of the issue and are working on it. Apparently they only got the code of the final build this weekend and it created a lot of instability.

I'm just gonna wait for the driver update or a patch and just start again, only about 90 mins into the game.

I can't get past the campfire where you unlock fast travel, game either crashes to desktop or locks up my entire system. I've tried all the 'fixes' to get it to work on a 600 series card but no luck. I'm gonna leave it for a few days and hope a patch or driver update sorts it out.

@zelyre: Yeah, at the moment I have both sets (4x4GB=16GB) installed and set at 1600MHz. I'm completely baffled as to why the corsair sticks only work when the value sticks are installed as well.

@zelyre: The value sticks have chips on both sides of the PCB, but I can't see under the heat spreader on the corsair sticks. I have tried setting the voltage and latency to settings I know the corsair sticks are compatible with while the value sticks are installed and then swapping them over, but no joy. Plus when the corsair sticks are installed the BIOS loads up a profile to overclock the RAM to 1600Mhz so it must recognise them in some way.

Also if the board didn't support the corsair modules, surely they wouldn't work at all or am I wrong?

Could a mod please move this back to the PC forum? It was originally, but once I edited it it was moved to general discussion.
