Radeon HD Settings
So, some little oddities have occurred during games.. and I am not really sure what the culprit is.
The Radeon HD 4890 is my GPU, the stock speed of 900Mhz/1GB version.
During game play sometimes weird things happen.. like all the sudden a texture that was clean and crisp now is black and "broken" - this happened during Fallout3 (collectors edition) with Games for Windows Live active, it only seems to happen when I press the "home" key to access G4WL menu however... so probably a G4WL error.
The Sims 3 (collectors as well) has random crashes (probably OS related however, or game itself, due to the insane amount of crash reports and error logs generated by this game on it's third day alive to the public) it also has some minor AA issues though.... but I let the program mess with AA -- - which brings me to my reason I am here.
A lot of people say Disable the CCC for ATI Cards, that it causes problems and all that.... and to just use the Video Driver itself. Still others say to set your GPU to "Performance" and not "Let the application decide" to get the best results...
So which is it? Do I crank out some 24X AA in the ATI controller and FORCE games to play in that? Or do I set each game manually to best settings?
Oh and... funny enough.. The Sims 3 on 1900x1080 doesn't look as good as 1024x768... so I get some AMAZING FPS on Sims 3 (Over 300 easy, one time over 1,500 LOL)
