  1. I have to agree unfortunately. The GPU might just edge it, but the CPU will get slaughtered. If at 1080p, expect ~20-25 fps on lowest settings.
  2. Your CPU is not great for Squad unfortunately. Squad (UnrealEngine4) likes fast Intel CPU's that offer fast IPC. The 750ti isn't the greatest card either, but paired with a recent Intel CPU it would probably be enough for 720p medium or 1080p low settings 40-60 fps. It's just how it is unfortunately, the devs are trying to optimize the game further but yeah... even looking at AMD Ryzen chips, they're not doing as well as the latest Intel chips in Squad.
  3. Hey, no worries you didn't start anything at all, nothing important anyway. It's just the internet, which is full of silly people as you can see. So you'll need a pre-built system, alright. What kind of monitor will you use? I highly advise against using a TV due to response time (specially if you intend to play FPS games as Squad).
  4. Sigh... You obviously don't understand the word premium. Also asking if someone is fourteen is a direct indicator that you yourself are a child, if not in age then in mind. Building around a 1080ti and 4K AND achieving greater gaming performance? Again, you probably never played on a 4K 60hz monitor beside a 1440p 144hz monitor. Try to use more fancy words in hopes you'll actually be taken seriously. OEM keys.. holy sh*t, ever heard of FPP, which is the ONLY way to go if you're building yourself? Did you even check your link for Newegg? Maximus IX Hero board!? Are you stupid? And you preach about recommending the components that meet the clients needs? Deluded. Add both the 1080 and the monitor I linked and you'll be at 1,8k with a inferior CPU... replace it with that i7 and you still have an inferior cooler, inferior storage, inferior PSU, inferior RAM, even an inferior case... with costing almost as much... must I go on?
  5. As I wrote, premium high end build. If you have $2k to spend, I would not cheap out. Sure you can make a budget build for a lot less, but that is not what I was going for. Things you suggested are terrible btw, you clearly never used a 27inch 1080p screen to begin with, and suggesting 60hz in 2017.. oh my. Windows 10 PRO? Are you having a laugh? Home edition is half the price and makes no difference to an average user. Logitech g502 is an average mouse and is completely overpriced (how you managed to mention this exact model while talking about budget is beyond me). Those Steelseries headphones are one of the shittiest you could find for that money as well. If you need a complete system, with keyboard, mouse, headphones and OS leave a comment with your exact desires, we'll help you.
  6. For Squad it would be very worth it, specially when OC'd.
  7. A premium high end build for $2030 that includes a gaming monitor. You most likely won't even hear the thing run.
  8. 1. No 2. No 3. No 4. Yes 5. No 6. Buy a better keyboard 7. Yes 8. Has been discussed before, devs will fix it 9. No
  9. New driver 382.19 works like a charm. Gained 10-15 fps, now rocking 85-95 at 1440p
  10. Are you seriously suggesting he should wait a year? The OP needs to tell us his budget and what monitor he intends to use. Then we can actually help him.
  11. I might have figured it out as well.. i ran game benchmark (under settings) again, and set my settings as i use them, fps went from 70-75 to 90-100... what the actual fck.. it can't be that simple can it? I'll report more, this seems promising. Edit: Didn't work for long
  12. Can confirm 372.90 fixed the low fps issue for me as well (was using latest 382.05 with issues). Went from 1060 to 1080 and I was shocked to see the same or lower fps. Used DDU etc, no difference, 372.90 fixed it straight away. Edit: Just tested 378.92, works good as well.
  13. low fps

    Have you tried using DDU to remove your Nvidia drivers, and then install the latest? Which Windows version are you using? I see you're using Fraps, which does not play well with Squad, so try not using Fraps with Squad and use console commands or go into Game settings and Toggle performance stats to display fps and latency. If you're playing with Vsync, turn it off and use Fast sync in Nvidia control panel (should work the same + reduce input lag a bit). Also set your GPU performance to maximum performance and Windows performance as well (could be the reason your GPU downclocks). Other than that, I would suspect the GPU having driver issues and it downclocks to idle states. Check this with either GPU-Z or MSI Afterburner.
  14. Hey, thanks Yeah I thought it might not be the best thing to do, don't know why I left it that way. I'll do it better in the next one, where I'll put my RAM speed testing results into video form with a bit more in depth testing as well.
  15. Since there is a gazillion threads asking the same question over and over again, I've made a video to help people who are in doubt if their PC can run Squad. Hope it helps!
  16. Hello! Mutiny is a new Squad community I've created that aims to bring more people together to play as a team and advance their skill and overall enjoyment of the game. This is not meant to be a full on clan, it's a community where almost everyone is welcome as long as that person goes by a few simple community guidelines, which are in place to keep things civil and fun. HOW TO JOIN MUTINY: - Read the guidelines of this community HERE - Follow this link to Discord if you comply: - Say hello and message me (MrOcto) and we will discuss the matter - Once you get the a-ok you are free to use the community tag in-game and participate in community events - Have fun! As the community is basically brand new, I'll be looking for players who would also want to play a larger role in this community. So if you want to get more involved please let me know. Thank you!
  17. Do you have a freesync monitor? if not, get the 1070 as it mops the floor with the rx 580. What clock speed do you run your CPU at? I'm also currently looking at either 1070 or 1080, with a niggling thought of "what if Vega turns out to be good?"... I've got a 1060 right now but 1440p + SS is a bit much for it on some maps dipping into the mid 40's at times (a clear GPU bottleneck as my CPU is more than capable looking at Stat unit).
  18. The GTX 745 is not really meant for heavy gaming tasks. The GTX 660 you own is actually A LOT better than the one you have installed right now. The CPU & RAM you have are fantastic for Squad, so basically, just swap the GPU's (check your power supply first, if it's powerful enough) and you'll be fine. Down the road replace the GTX 660 with something recent, but again, check your power supply to avoid any issues.
  19. These are the results of my short benchmark. Firing range (to remove the player variable) did the same walk with US LMG kit and fired 2 mags in the same direction. I think the rest is on the image. Hope it helps
  20. I am head of sales at a PC store. I used to build systems but through chance moved toward sales, but I still help out when we have bigger tenders to fill for our clients (government and larger firms which deal with video/3D/CAD design). I have a 6700k and 16GB 3000mhz DDR4 at home in my personal rig, I can test it in Squad with 2133, 2400, 2666 and 3000mhz, although it's going to be a bit harder to be precise since Squad does not like Fraps very much. I'll try to post the results tomorrow as I'll have more time then to tinker with things.
  21. I don't think the OP can afford it and/or is willing to spend this much. Which is completely fine. I don't think you need a top of the line PC to enjoy Squad and other games. That i5 7500 & rx480 will do nicely for him at 1080p. Although if he is in no rush, I'd wait to see what RX 580 will be like, performance and price wise.
  22. Hello everyone, I'm looking for people who are playing Squad with a RX 480 8GB GPU, paired with an Intel i7 for instance (since I have a 6700k OC + 1060 6GB). Asking about performance with the card at 1440p Epic settings, as I got a new Freesync 1440p monitor and am considering switching cards to make use of, but I don't want to switch if the RX 480 doesn't perform very well in Squad as does the 1060. I know it's a "side grade" but Freesync is a great thing Thank you in advance!
  23. It supports it. With the Z270 motherboard you can enable XMP on the RAM so it basically "overclocks" itself to 3000mhz, don't worry about it, it's perfectly safe and in spec as the RAM is guaranteed to run at 3000mhz and very easy to do. The Intel CPUs witk K at the end are unlocked CPUs, which means they have an unlocked multiplier which is used to overclock. Non K Intel CPUs have a locked multiplier. For instance, 6700K has a base clock of 4000mhz (40x100), to over clock it you'd change it to 45x100 etc, you can't do that with non K Intel CPUs, although the multiplier will change during use, like when Turbo is engaged or when CPU is idling it will lower the multiplier to save energy.
  24. (this video is actually a bit "flawed" since it has GPU bottlenecks, but I still wanted to include it) In some games it does not make any difference, in some it does quite a lot. As I wrote, it CAN be a difference of 5-10 fps. Also, when buying new stuff I always advise my clients to spend that few extra bucks on such things. As Squad is heavily CPU bound right now (for the most part) faster RAM is better to have. Arma 3 is another game that benefits from faster RAM and is closer to Squad as a game. - Here are some other DDR4 speed comparisons in games: If you have any other doubts please feel free to ask, like I said, I do this for a living.
  25. That CPU is a BOX version, which comes with a stock Intel cooler. It's not the best, but it does the job.
