    I need a bit of help please.

    I recently installed a GTX 980Ti SC GPU and other titles are working fine but, rF2 is a complete slideshow - FPS? Uh - no, more like seconds per frame.

    rF2 worked fine prior to this GPU but, one unusual thing is that I ran my second monitor off of the on-board GPU until I could get a DVI to Display Port adapter. The mobo GPU is now disabled in the BIOS but, I wonder if there may be something still affecting rF2 somehow.

    Here's what I've tried so far to resolve it:
    • Cleaned out Config, Cbash, etc. - no change
    • Tried different video driver - no change
    • Default settings in Nvidia CP - no change
    • Remove un-related USB devices - no change
    • Update and reset System Bios - no change
    • Disable second audio device for use with Simvibe - no change

    Next up - uninstall rF2 and try fresh

    Update: The fresh install seems to have done the trick based on a quick test - back in business.

    Any of you rF2 Gurus have other suggestions if the clean install doesn't work?

    Use GPU-Z to check that your video card bus interface is running at least PCI-E 3.0x16.
