Looks like LTK fell asleep.

I would understand graphical settings to kill FPS, but apps? In terms of settings, the biggest hits come from Anisotropic (ugh), all the postprocessing effects (game looks better without to me, save...

I've just realized Rivali kills my framerate. Downloading the latest version now.
EDIT: okay, it's not just Rivali - ALL the apps bring a huge performance hit.

ETS2 is all kinds of brilliant. While I don't play it a lot, I do want the Scandinavia DLC and\or American Truck Sim - and perhaps would love to drive a car instead of a truck.

Yeah, today Rivali says that I should correct my profile, but the other day it just wasn't working at all. Ohwell, next time!

Good laps everyone. Just curious - was my lap not valid? I think it was 1:53.1something but I could only post a Rivali-less screenie because it was acting weird.
Oh by the way the consolation...
I cleaned my old laptop with CCleaner and hoping a lot of my old data was erased (I never keep firefox history anyway); regarding the new one, Dark Souls 2 runs maxed at 720p at a very good framerate...
I saw Mogwai live the other day for the second time.
Wow. Just wow. They were fantastic, and ridiculously loud - for some reason my ears aren't even buzzing.
APU is A8-4555M, 8670M is the gpu. Actually, races with AI are playable so yes, it's working well I think.
I'll try to remove absolutely everything from the old pc...and you're right, I didn't...
Only vaguely related: I like the new lappy a lot. But I'm not sure it's working 100% well - LA Noire is very chuggy, like on the old laptop. I think the game isn't well optimized, but this seems very...
The ChromeOS idea is actually a neat one, for people who only really use a PC for browsing. Thanks.
Well yeah, same boat here rockman, wanted to get a cheap new laptop for dad, but when for 100...

Agree on the quality of default setups, they work well for mostly everything.
I'm as puzzled as you are, trjp: did a fast, clean lap, only to end up with a high 1:53. I don't know where I'm losing...
Seriously, thanks for the ideas, but again - I'd love to do it but there's simply no reason to install Linux as the laptop is working well and dad does not want another OS.
So what you proposed is...

Thank you very mush.
Look, I know, I use Ubuntu myself sometimes but I'm sure dad would just struggle with Linux. He can barely use Windows.
Are there games without NDA?
I'm in the beta too (even forgot about it), but I just realized I don't wanna download 15 GB right now since I'm getting my new laptop in the next days. Plus it expires...

Thanks for that setup! It's botched, you needa fix the toe on one tire, bring up the rear wing and fiddle with the brake balance, but once fixed it works like a charm...except Rivali suddenly died....
Can't really stomach Cynic, but I have a lot of respect for them.
Twin Peaks is THE stuff.

Welp, now I want this pretty bad. Polygon reviews it, says it's one of the best Souls areas.

I can vouch for the whole of this post. The McLaren GT3 is indeed a tamer car.

I'm guessing the new layout obviously. Ladies and gentlemen, lower your rear wings.
Thanks for all the solutions! In any case: my pc has a recovery partition and the recovery DVD utility, but dad doesn't want me to format it so I'll just uninstall everything. ^^
I know the reinstall is fairly quick but... *drumroll* I don't have a windows 7 DVD, because they don't give them out anymore with PCs.
And I'd be totally up to linux but he's not very...

I absolutely agree, the one change per week rule is perhaps the best way to make such a challenge a way to get experience with certain tracks\cars. I just hope I won't see Silverstone for a good...
My dad's laptop is dead, and guess what - since he doesn't need a powerful computer I'll just get the new one and give him my current PC.
So, while waiting for it to arrive, what...
