Just looking at some advice if anyone has some tips.
Current System: AMD FX8350, 12G DDR3, 256GB SSD, RX 580 4GB. Everything running standard clocks.
More and more I am getting issues with framerates and it is amplified with certain mods and mod tracks. If I run on my own with any content, I get an easy 90fps. When I add a grid full of cars, I get drops to 35-40 which is bearable, but with the GroupA and C cars, I'm getting drops to 25 and below. When I check the VRAM settings in the AMD console, Its maxxed out no matter how I set the detail and world level.
In the graphics test sequence, I can max out everything but leave the post processing off and I get a very usable 45fps. Not ideal but very usable. I have everything on medium and get 90fps everywhere except the main straight where it drops to 45 and the graphics VRAM is sitting about 53%. Using the Group A and C cars, it goes straight to 100% and framerates drop to as low as 17.
I wont be qualifying in the coming series which is a shame as I seem to have some genuine mid pack pace in these cars and I do like driving them but I have no intention of crashing into someone because of framerates on lap 1.
I am trying to avoid getting a 8GB card and wanted to know if anyone has a few ideas to try. I've tries a lot of the stuff on google with no success. Does anyone use Crossfire and was there a perfermance gain. I get mixed reports when I look into it.
I know this is covered a few times but just got a bonus from my boss for working obscene amount of hours in the last few weeks with instructions to buy myself a VR headset for my online racing. Since I only spend race nights in my sim usually I am looking at the value of getting the Occulus rift vs one of the cheaper headsets. If I get a cheaper headset, I can also get the wheel and shifter for my clubsport wheel project but I am reasonably happy with my TS300 GT for now except for the horrible brake pedal feel.
My budget at the moment is $750 and the only sims I use right now is AC and on the rare occasion, Kart Racing Pro.
I have just come across a really cheap upgrade and will take delivery of a Fanatec Clubsport V1 wheel base and pedals. I have a couple of repairs to take care of first but one thing that does not come with it is the wheel itself. Does anyone out there have a wheel only for one of these things they're willing to sell?
I will look at getting the universal mount and my own wheel but for now, a basic wheel for testing would be great

Can a generous soul out there send me the aim file from a practice session or race. I want to make sure it is similar. I am running a G25 and am getting lots of weird info from dropping in and out of gear to random clutch applications and only max of 97% throttle. I want to make sure it's not a translation issue from the generated data.
