What i find on our server when full is a massive stutter and slow down or jerkiness mainly in corners, its like it cannot redraw the new view (is that the right word ''redraw'' ?)
when there is 3 or 4 on server no issues at all and yes offline big field unplayable

I also experienced a big FPS dropped with a recent AC update with the in game V-Sync; if you dropped below 60 it would straight away lock it at 30 making the game feel terrible. I turned off the in game V-Sync and am currently using the 'Fast' option in the nvidia control panel, which I think is quite new as I hadn't noticed it before. It just drops any additional frames your monitor can't render, so you don't get tearing and minimal input lag (apparently).  I've been running it for a while and seems good.

It's definitely not a server issue though, unless it's the lag you see when somebody joins the server as that still seems to happen due to minorating.
MMMhhhh,... I noticed the drop to 30 as well, but did not notice this "fast sync" thing. I'll try it when I get back home. Thank you.

The 550 could be starting to show its age, I reckon.

AC has a reputation for changing settings by itself (at least I've had it happen to me a few times and have heard of a few people having similar experiences). I'd go and turn the reflection and smoke generation settings down (if they're up) and see how you go there. Those are two of the biggest FPS drains in the game.

Try turning off Post Processing and reduce reflections.

I do have an ASUS OC edition GTX980 for sale with box if you're interested. It's in as new condition and one awesome card.  I averaged 70-80 fps with everything up full in Assetto.

Id say the definate buy would depend on Price unless your all getting a cut from the sale lol. 980 would be a good card but if the price is close to say a 1070 then its not exactly a great deal.  :-\

1070s are worth 650-700+  I'm only asking $300.  It's the Asus GTX980 Strix Direct CU II OC edition 4gb GDDR5

In comparison, I paid $600 for my new 980 several months ago.

It seems a pretty good deal, I doubt there is any new card in that price range that would come close to the 980. I really didnt study any performance comparisons between it and lower end new gpu's but would guess its going to outperform a 1060 by a bit.

A quick search and this site looks good for comparing gpu's. This is the 980 vs 1060 with the 980 a little ahead but not by as much as I thought it would be.

Yeah the 1060 is pretty good bang for the buck. I got one a couple of months ago when my old 7870 bought the farm.
