Prepping for the release of BF4, I have installed a new video card. An upgrade that is long overdue. I was origionally planning to upgrade for BF3, but then I found that my current card was good enough to record videos and still play the game at 30FPS.
However I was never really happy with those specs and wanted more when BF4 was announced. So I have just recently installed an Asus Geforce GTX 770 2GB card. I was happy with the increased frame rate for BF3. But unfortunately I spent most of the BF4 Beta time troubleshooting lag and poor frame rates. I just couldn’t record without crashing. even playing was difficult because the game seemed to have hickups all the time. My Beta time was wasted.
The final update that happened fixed most of these problems, but it was too little too late. I didn’t have enough time to really enjoy the Beta and record before it was closed. Now I have to wait for the release of the actual game to find out if they have optimized it so that I will be able to continue making tutorial videos.
At any rate, I have wiped my computer and reinstalled everything so that I have a fresh computer ready for gaming and video making. Can’t wait for the 29th.
