GTX 780
Is a GTX 780 and a i5 3570 not good enough to play this game?
I play shogun 2 maxed out but rome looks like crap..

Just an experiment ! try bringing your 'Shader Model' down to 4, in your Graphics options, and see if it makes a difference.

That will make it worse.

Enable "unlimited video memory" to prevent the game from downgrading automatically. Also set everything to max manually, automatic settings always set too low. The biggest problem graphically is the lack of good antialiasing. You have an Nvidia card though so you're a lucky ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥: Nvidia has a program to force AA implementation in games. I don't know which one it is though. nvidia inspector or something?

That aside you can download GEM and/or Aztec's lighting mod for better graphics

I did turn the unlimited video memory on, i even modified the script folder so the game thinks that i have 4,5 GB video memory.
I'll try to boost up de AA with the Nvidia control panel.

The AA of the game is broken isnt it?

Quite possibly, although I did say as an experiment. This being due to the poor 'Optimisation', as far as I can tell some 'Bods', have had issues with DX11. It was just a thought.

I agree with LeadStarDude worked for a past Laptop of mine was getting 15fps updated Bios went up to 30 and that was on a old & weak AMD Radion 7670m GPU it was on low settings if you might ask. Now I use a Nvidia GeForce GT 755m which at a 1366 X 768 Resolution runs the game pretty decent, high settings 31FPS+. Graphics looks bad as it is so I am hoping they will improve it after alot of the major issues have been fixed. Shogun 2 looks alot better I am sacrificing alot of FPS to do Ultra on Shogun 2 due to it looking so good but I don't mind. It's worth a shot. GOOD LUCK

LOL even with 780 Ti SC and 4770k at 4.2Ghz, its still look like crap

Please explain why it can help? Because this is the first time I heard this. Unless u're doing some overclocking with ur CPU, there no need for a BIOS update.

An old Bios can prevent your GPU from using a newer driver properly. I have had this issue before. It can cause terrible performance.

If i Update my bios,do i have to install windows all over again? what are the risks?

No you don't have to reinstall your Windows. The risk is high while installing BIOS if u haven't done it before. Still manually update all of your drivers is the best options. I'm using 2 SLI GTX 780 Ti SC and the graphic didn't look that great even at max out setting.
Unless you got technical issues with the game, otherwise updating all your stuff aint make a different on graphic LOL. If the game is bad, it is bad.

ok,tnx. i will give it a try..
[N7_A]RCH_3N3MY Mar 26 @ 3:12am 
to all the dudes saying it wont make a diffrence:
i have seen it myself. updating it will make a huge diffrence if u have the issue that the game looks ♥♥♥♥ty eventhough u have a high end GPU. better try it urself before denying it ;)

to Zulu:

it is a risk if u havent done it before. u might want to ask a friend who has experience or ask ur local computer service for help. if ur mainboard supports UEFI, then it isnt that risky. simply download the file from the manufactors website (the manufactor who build ur maniboard) and execute. most UEFI updates can be executet directly via windows. no there is no need to reinstall windows. just make sure that u dont shut off ur pc while bios is updating AT ALL COSTS! as i said, if u are unsure with that, better go to an expert. usually these dudes give u a warranty. so if they ♥♥♥♥ it up, they pay it. but better ask if they give warranty first^^

the bios is kind of a master driver that coordinates the interaction of the drivers for ur single hardware components. so of curse, if the master driver is out dated it cant handle newer drives properly, causing massive perofrmance decreases on newer games.
