I just bought NFS Most Wanted (from criterion, the new one) and I was amazed that my 7850 won't cut the game at high settings. I would get frame drops that could get my frames to go below 30 per second. So I'm forced to get the settings to medium and then it's playable but still, I got drops that put my fps to the mid 30s. Yes the game has got excellent graphics, but I thought my Graphics would run every game at 1920x1080 High settings?
My Question is, is this normal? I would probably wait until they release the 12.11 Catalyst driver for download, but I don't think it'll fix this significantly when there is a problem in my system.

- Corsair 4GBx2

Would it be better to SLI my GTX 660 or sell it and buy a 7970 or GTX 670 and possibly Xfire/SLI that in the future?
So I just upgraded from a E8400 and 4 gigs of DDR2 ram to a i5-3570k and 16 gigs of DDR3-1600 ram and a new ASUS VS Series VS247H-P. I'm keeping the SSD and 550W power supply that I have in my case, but I'm thinking that I will need to upgrade my video card to maximize my rig's gaming potential. I'm a medical student on a poor-man's budget, so would it be worth upgrading from a EVGA GeForce GTX 460 Fermi? If so, what should I get?
Is a GeForce GTX 670 enough for a good gaming experience at 2560x1440 or do I need to step up to a Radeon HD 7970 or higher?

I'd like to be able to run 3 monitors at 5760x1080 and 120Hz for sim racing, but I can't work out what combination of gfx cards I will need to power this. As well as whether I will need any further adapters and If so what. Can you suggest a setup? I have no major brand preference and it would be on an I7 3820 and Asus P9X79 machine, although that can be changed if required.
I currently use an AMD Radeon GPU, am I denying myself a better experience by not switching to NVIDIA?
I've been on the ATI/AMD side of the Graphics card battle for eight years. I now have the time to play games, >240 of every variety, for about three to four hours a day. Am I denying myself a better experience by not trying/switching to Nvidia?
I've just got done installing and setting up Windows 8 only to find that I'm not hearing any sound from my PC via HDMI output. I can see the audio devices in the Sound section under Control Panel, but it's still not working. Can you help?
I managed to download my Windows 8 Pro ISO from my MSDN TechNet account, but now that I have the shiny new OS installed, how do I activate it with my MSDN key?
