    Yup does look that way, been debating getting a new card as mines a little power hungry and showing its age a bit. This just makes it harder as the AIO im using doesnt support that many Nvidia cards an id like to keep it because its nigh on silent.

    GTA V shows no issues for me running 3x r290s, runs fine, launches no problem, perhaps some people are running dodgy overclocks?

    I'm a 290X user and I have zero issues though...

    That said, I do format, physically clean, and start fresh every three months or so. This is why you need a NAS people... Just set up document redirection and you can reinstall Windows on a client anytime and be fully up and running in minutes!

    Not saying that all AMD cards are going to run in to problems, but if you go back through this thread, those who are having problems (crashes, unable to run etc) are all on AMD GPUs (or at least, I didn't spot any NVIDIA ones). Might mean it can be fixed via driver updates or by R*.

    Unlikely to be an overclock, since I don't do that any more. Everything's bone stock and up to date firmware wise.

    I might try rolling back to pre-GTA optimised drivers and see what happens if I can be arsed.

    I'm starting to suspect driver more than anything, because digging through eventlogs and amdkmdxx.sys is quite often the root of the problem. Game starts, gets to the menu, starts loading story mode and the transition from 2D to 3D causes the driver to crap all over itself.

    No other game does it, even with a similar 2D/3D switch after a menu.

    I initially suspected crossfire, but without a second card I don't get any different behaviour (Slightly unrelated but equally annoying note: Don't seem to get any different FPS with Xfire, and in fact, some games have higher FPS on single card than double.. Despite supposedly having Xfire profiles).

    Maybe it's time to switch to team green and see what they have to offer.

    Actually, I've had a few game crashes. However, after it crashes, it's rock solid for hours. Although the geforce experience FPS counter and shadowplay overlay no longer working.


    I'd love to join multiplayer session planned tomorrow, but I've got distant friends coming over tomorrow. Will do next time.

    You might just squeeze enough out of selling your 280s to get a 970. :D

    Hmmm, sounds odd, I get double scaling with Xfire in GTAV using the betas they released for it, I've not even felt the need to turn on the 3rd card. Most of my games seem to work fine with Xfire, though I normally only run the official drivers, as AMD betas seem like proper betas, bringing reams of issues unlike when I used to run NVidia stuff, I had to make an exception for GTAV.

    We'll see. I've got ~600 to spend on the RS next month, so GPU changes will almost certainly have to wait!

    Yeah, I don't get why my Xfire config seems to be so shitty compared, the cards on their own do excellent jobs and I can't complain about them otherwise!

    I've had negative experiences with the AMD beta drivers before, but went for the 15.4b for much the same reasons as you, but we'll see how much I can be arsed over the weekend as to whether I roll back.

    Seen shadowplay mentioned as causing problems elsewhere on the net while searching to try and solve my crashes.

    Seems to have gotten better for me after turning off MSI Afterburner, apparently the game doesn't like any sort of overlay (not good if you're running the steam version).

    Hmmm wonder if thats whats killing mine. I have afterburner lurking on mine most of the time and the TS3 overwolf plugin likes annoying me (keep meaning to remove it) I'll have a nose when im released from the office. Could be something stupid like AMD catalyst screen optomisation crap happening in the background.

    I've had issues where Rivatuner Statistics Server outright stopped the game from starting, the launcher would just spin and do nothing. I also have occasional crashes when I quick-restart heists, but I'm not 100% certain that isn't due to my Overclock, I need to sit down and clean it up a touch, but it's too damn hot to be running Prime 95 on my 8120 at the moment.

    Currently pretty happy that I've managed to get High textures to work on only a pair of 2GB 670s, it's edging on Vram limit, but it's still nice and smooth with only the barest hint of stutter if I force it to load a lot of textures quickly.

    I AM STUCK :( lol
    I can't seem to progress in the story mode. I have done two heists and had Franklin say stall on third
    heist. All I have for any of the characters is L (lester assassination) for Franklin.
    Nothing seems to be coming up to start the next heist (which I believe some
    Prep has been done for like getting the getaway car/rubbish truck etc).
    There is two people's God awful missions for that Beverly guy (awful waste of time those) and the druggy guy. Do they HAVE to be done? ;/
    Just would seem odd for them to stop story progressing.

    Was going to say getaway car for that one, as it doesn't appear on the map.
    You've bought the masks and boiler suits?


    The assasination missions, have you done the hotel one with Beta and Bilkington as the stock market companies you're influencing?

    Nope, I did originally do that hotel assassination but was then told to go back and do all heists first
    then start assassinations so would have max money to invest - makes difference between ending up
    With a few millions or much higher millions.

    Yeah got masks and suits etc.

    Does anyone else listen to their own music through them game and if so, did you notice a drop in performance? I grew tired of the radio stations pretty quickly so slapped some entombed in there, but it dropped a good 10fps in doing so.
