New gtx780 classified help setting up

Recommended Posts

Hi all, I got my new evga gtx780 classified today, un installed all amd drivers and software, installed the newest nvidia drivers and software and nvidia inspector 1.9.7.2, I have never had a nvidia card before and I could use some advice on the settings please and if I have the best driver/inspector installed for fsx. at the moment it doesn't look as nice as my 6970 did.

Ok, thanks I will check that out when I get home, I found something similar on a Google search, they were using 1.9.7.1 and the settings they had posted were not available on 1.9.7.2.

Google searched nvidia inspector 1.9.7.2 fsx settings and found a thread were someone else was having a problem, there was a link to the new avsim fsx guide v2.0, there I have found what I was looking for. Thanks.

Ok, I have applied all the settings in nvidia inspector 1.9.7.2 as per guide going for the highest sparse grid setting recommended, the quality of the picture is nit as sharp as what I had with my ati card, any clues anyone please ?

Its just a little bit fuzzy next to what I had with the ati , like a camera thats not quite focused properly.

Text and icons on the desktop are the same, I have tried messing with gamma, contrast & brightness settings don't seem to improve it.

Still had no joy sharpening up text & fsx, maybe all the nvidia is better than ati hype isn't true.

For an LCD screen to be sharp, you need to use it at its native resolution, but I'm sure you know that. Second point is the type of cable used, but you must be using the same one for the ATI card.

Unless there is something wrong with the EVGA780class?

I am presently using a Asus gtx780DC2 at 2560x1440 rez (native rez.) and it is as sharp as it can be.

Yes you are correct, I am using my monitor at its native resolution, and I am using the same hdmi cable I had in my ati card, the splash screen for making fsx selections is awfull on the text, I have tried using the win 7 clear type setup as well. My desk top screen saver picture looks ok, in fsx its not as sharp as what the ati card gave me. I haven't gained anything in fsx only gone backwards, in heaven bench test v4 my scores are a lot higher now with the 780, & 3d mark puts my pc above 90% of all results.

Hey Sleighflight - Don't give up hope and there probably is nothing wrong with your card.

 

I switched over from a 7950 to a 780 Classified not too long ago. I remember thinking the same thing that everything looked fuzzy.

 

I did finally find a setting that fixed it. I have been covered up with work so have not flown for a couple of weeks, but just popped open FSX to make sure the fuzzy was gone and it is.

 

Sorry I can not remember exactly what I did and will not have time to research before I head out of town for a month in a few days.

 

Just wanted to let you know there IS as setting that helps and you will find it.

 

I was unhappy at first changing from my 7950 thinking the same things you posted - Like what is all of the hype about Nvidia over AMD. And oddly I still had to turn down a few sliders in FSX while using the 780 that were higher on my Radeon card.

 

When I get back in town I plan to setup another computer and will be using my 7950 for the card. It will be interesting seeing them side by side.

If the image looks a bit fuzzy it's probably your AA setting.

 

I use 8xSQ and 2xSGSS

 

If AA is too high or the wrong setting you will see a blurry cockpit panel.

I use 8 x sq followed the avsim inspector set up guide, it is now better than it was and fsx looks quite nice now, text is still not as sharp as it was with the ati card but its far better than it was.

Desk top text is still not as clear as it was with the ati card, and the text in the sim is also not as sharp, I really don't get it, NVIDIA is supposed to give sharper graphics.

Yes styckx, I am connected with hdmi, it is the same cable I had on my ati card which had perfectly clear text.

hey i have a similar issue (although lower in the performance range)

my friend having bought a titan he gave me his gtx 760 (my system being an old q9650@4ghz, 1280/960 it's a perfect fit). I had an ati5870 and i read everywhere FSX was a lot better with nvidia .. so i took it for a test with fsx (DX9).

obviously before posting i've read 100's of the config tutorial available, various fsx.cfg tweaking guides, tried 100's of nvidia inspector settings (Word Not Allowed, nick, avsim ...) and spent a few (way too many already :lol: ) hours trying to figure it out by myself, but no matter what i do the image quality is just worse with nvidia for me unfortunately.

It's mostly in the VC that it is noticeable on the PFD, ND and text where i seem to have lost quality, especially when you zoom out a bit, the thin vertical and horizontal lines become jaggy (close up it's 100% perfect even with the nvidia)

AA obviously works, and if i didn't have an ati before i would probably think it's ok, but coming from something a bit better now i see a loss of quality so it's a bit disturbing. Maybe everyone has the same issue when zooming out in the VC and they just don't bother (or maybe my 'lowish' resolution accentuates the problem), i'm not really sure, i've read so many people being happy with nvidia and fsx.

so be sure to update this post if you find something interesting ! ..dont really want to go back to my old&loud ATI, but well .. why not .. :P

thank you !! :wub:

I decided to erase my ssd drives and start again, got to the Samsung secure erase page after reboot, I got a blue screen and the text was un readable, I tried all the output ports on the gtx780 card and got the same result, I ended up having to plug the display into the onboard igpu built into my motherboard, with that I was able to read the text and secure erase my ssd drives, I'm wondering if there is some bios setting that is wrong or if the card itself is faulty.

I've found out that a lot of uefi bios users have this isue with samsung magician so I have stopped worrying about that, text is still not brilliant in windows or fsx.<br /><br />Sent from my GT-I9300 using Tapatalk<br /><br />

I have the Asus 780 DC II as well. 8X AA, 8X SSG, 16 AF, LOD bias -1.5 allowed. FXAA off. That can cause some fuzziness. My setting are for DX10 also.  0x80000F71 (BioShock, BioShock 2) in AA Comp. DX1x. 2560x1440

I have 16 x S otherwise shadowplay records the wrong size image, 4 x SSG, FXAA off, 16 AF, not sure about LOD bias though. I will have a look, thanks.
