Hi Chaps!

Hope you are doing well this evening. I just had to stop by and thank all of you for your help and input on my recent graphics card upgrade. I've moved from a 745 GTX to a 1050 ti and WOW what a difference!

WOFF, which ran pretty close to its default settings, with a few options ticked down and a lot of tweaking in my nVidia control settings to keep stutters and pauses in check now looks like this:

I can crank up my settings to all five and finally, after seeing HellShade's advice for years about running my vsync on Fast, I can finally do so with some jaw dropping FPS numbers.

Thanks so much for the advice and input - and a special shout out to kksnowbear for his insight on my particular system. I felt like I was doing some invasive surgery wedging this behemoth of a card into my system but all appears to have worked!

Looks great. I like the subtle light reflections off the skins.

Thanks gents! It's great to be back in the air and to have it running so smoothly. Quite a noticeable upgrade from my old card. Cheers guys!
