Tomb Raider's on sale on Steam, and I almost want to get it just to test my PC.

I heard the improved hair option is PC exclusive, and apparently, pretty demanding on resources. A part of me wants to pay $12 just to benchmark my PC's performance and see how well it handles running that graphical option at the highest settings, and see if it keeps a steady 60 FPS. If it can manage that somehow, then I'll record FRAPs with it and see if it still manages 60 FPS, but I doubt I'll even get that far.

I know it sounds silly, but I'm looking at this as just a challenge for my PC set up. Just to see if I can, nothing more.

I had to turn off the hair, it didn't work quite right with my GTX660. She was hanging upside down and her hair was flipping around like crazy, I couldn't play without laughing. Even if it works right in the videos I saw, it looks weird, like her hair can't touch her shoulders because it's hot lava.

The game seems decent enough though. Did you get Deadspace 3? That's what I use to test out graphics, that game looks nice.

What are your specs?

Ultimate settings will require better than a 7970 for 60fps. It only averages ~53 fps on its own. A titan falls even below that due to AMD's superior opencl performance (which is what tressFX runs on).

Really? I hadn't heard anything about Dead Space 3. Just Crysis and Tomb Raider. Well, I guess Crysis isn't that demanding nowadays, but a few years ago...

Damn near identical to my system. You won't be maxing it at 60fps. Turn off tressFX and you will hold a fairly steady 60fps though. Fraps will likely cut you down a little but not a whole lot so long as you are recording onto a different harddrive.

I'd LIKE another hard drive, but I'm not sure my case can hold one. And no? I won't? That sucks. That means I'll have to try and upgrade or something...

Eh, the game ran at 60+ FPS for the most part. There were times where it would drop a little lower (And when you got close enough to her hair, it would drop even further...). I don't have any proof during gameplay that it would run higher, but here is my benchmark where I average 68 FPS.

It really dipped if you went above the Ultimate Preset and turned on 4x SSAO and ultra shadows.
