    Mr. TIM "ISI" wrote here somewhere he thik ATI 7850 is a great video card...

    So, from all of your nice tips above (thanx!!!) I conclude that:

    1. I can run rF2 in my rig, but only with "older" contents (Sparks...Brabham...the GTs...), and cannot do it with the latest ones, including upcoming cars/traks/builds..
    -> yep...this is sad...but since I only race in leagues, maybe I'll find some that suits my rig...FORTUNATELLY CMS does!

    2. To fully enjoy rF2 (and AC...), I need to upgrade.
    -> this is even more sad! I've quoted an i7 similar to Jhon's and some CMS folks's and it's about US$ 4,000 in Brazil...

    3. I still haven't tried that UNINSTALL/REINSTALL ALL thing...should that work?!?

    4. Point is that, as I said here somewhere, I KNOW some guys that already has NASA/CERN computers, with specs higher than most of us and they are having the same or worse issues than me!
    ->...so that "the issue is on your end" solution still do not convinces me...

    Mine's fine on stock speeds with medium/high/full settings (depending on track/mod), HDR on, fullscreen res (1920x1200) and 19 to 26 AI. A few slowdowns at the start of a race that I can personally live with but all above 60fps thereafter.

    I have overclocked my card now and getting better than a 7870 performance/fps wise and therefore more settings on High/Full and higher anisotropic and AA levels + more AI should I choose too.

    Whilst there are performance issues with AMD over nVidea it's not that huge of a difference as people on here would suggest, but there is room for improvement, my card runs other games flawlessly and I know ISI are improving optimisation where/when they can....you should've seen performance on the first Build!

    Whether you go AMD or nVidea is entirely your choice, if you just race RF2 then Nvidea right now, if not and you play other games then google comparative benchmarks for those games, as when the HD7850 came out it was better than its nVidea rival on stock speeds and as I have done you can overclock the hell outta the card!

    Posts like these make me sad. I wish I had a system like yours, yet I am fully enjoying rf2 for the main part. I just avoid the system hoggers like the civic or Silverstone. rest is open for business.
    but to be honest, I solely focus on performance so I can enjoy the actual racing experience. anything graphical that comes my way is just icing on the cake.
    I suspect quite a few people do it the other way around.

    Not sure what the deal is here but I know I invested more then enough time to get rf2 working properly, all kinds of tricks and tweaks floating around these forums, there's plenty we can influence.

    Anyways, yes, a complete uninstall/reinstall would be recommended if you are running out of ideas. a fresh game will be much better in general, especially when things are tight as they are.


    The 'issues on your end'' comment can be easily reverted into people instantly blaming rf2. equally easy to do and to no end.

    I'm not saying I'm not enjoying rF2, au contraire my friend, I am REALLY enjoying this sim!
    I just wish I could enjoy all its releases, for a bit more longer time...
    I also do concentrate only in the race itself so what happens around the track (flags in the wind...flash photos, choppers...birds....planes...) doesn't mind me at all...
    I run all LOW and rack medium and it's fine for me...
    rF2 is so cool that I just can't drive rF1 anynore...in fact it's been almost a year I don't do it...
    AS I said before, all this came up only after build 382, and only for me...
    I'll do that uninstall/reinstall thing and see what happens...but first let me pray 50 hail marys...:rolleyes:

    Don't worry about age I am 57, just remember that Imagination is more important than knowledge.

    Nvidia 480GTX and 580GTX is still good DX9 cards and they work fine with rFactor2 . I think you
    get with 480GTX 80 Fps and 580GTX 100fps with your system.

    What bothers me is that you have Win7 32 bit 4GB RAM, Win7 64 bit 8GB RAM is so much better.

    Maybe you can look on ebay if you can find a used 480 or 580GTX at an affordable price.

    I'll be looking at them Ari, thanx!
    Meanwhile I'll play what still works fine on rF2 and hope to not get CTDs on league races...

    Just a head up: installed build 382 on rF2 lite only with 1960 Historic, R2P F2 S30 vmod (includes ISI-Formula 2 + 19 ISI and non-ISI tracks) and CMS GT CHALLENGE VMOD (Corvette C6r ZR1 + 6 ISI and non-ISI tracks). Been practicing on and off line without a single issue. Game went back to as it was 3 weeks ago: flows perfectly, no stutterings 120+ fps (smooth 60 with V-sync) with the above vmods at any track...not a single CTD...Just need to check come race days...
    All in the same rig and same settings as before...could the problem be the Civic???...or multiple vmods are the bad guys?

    This was the case in rf1, the more stuff we added to one single install the worse performance got. But I have no idea if this could also be the case with rf2.
    But as with anything electronic, less is better so why not with rf2 :)

    Yes it can be Civic many has problems with that and Build 382 is not good at all maybe worst build ever and there is only few players online.
    I find it strange that ISI don't provide information when new build.

    Here is the First Law of Stupidity according to Carlo Cipolla:

    We always underestimate the number of stupid people.

    This is not as obvious as it sounds, says Cipolla, because:

    people we had thought to be rational and intelligent suddenly turn out to be unquestionably stupid;
    and
    day after day we are hampered in whatever we do by stupid people who invariably turn up in the least appropriate places.

    He also observes that it is impossible to set a percentage, because any number we choose will be too small.

    Cipolla also observes that stupid people don't know they are stupid, and that is one more reason why they are extremely dangerous.

    Which of course leads me back to my original, agonizing question: Are you stupid Jerry ?

    You did not understand my question, you are not the guy with an answer to all, my best friend.

    So if Sergio really was stupid and you believe Carlo, then why on earth would you do the exact opposite he tells you to. ?


    Because you are stupid as well ? ...... or are you just constantly forgetful Ari ?


    ;) <<< WINK

    2 short bans, 1 long one. Was it worth it? Probably not.

    Don't reply to posts and implicate yourself by calling them names. Report posts and let me deal with them. The two of you who got short bans will hopefully learn this.

    A short educative explanation:
    The correct way to write BraSil in portuguese in with a "S" , but our country's name came from a tree called brazil-wood , so BraZil is written this way , with a "Z", all over the world.
    Since we comunicate in english in this forum, not in portuguese, I think I MUST write my country's name in the language of this forum comunity...
