    This thread is to gauge how different PC hardware performs at playing Don Bradman Cricket 2014 Cricket Academy in the nets. This is to assist, until an official recommended and minimum PC settings for the game is announced, those that may be looking to purchase, build or upgrade a PC machine to run the game.

    Please post with as much details as possible with similar information provided as below. Original post will be updated to reflect all indicated systems in rough order of component benchmark figures.

    To get the FPS use a program like Fraps, MSI Afterburner, Razor Game Booster. Please try and use totally low settings (800x600 resolution with all other options turned off) and totally high settings (maximum resolution available with all options turned on). Do NOT use VSync during any FPS testing (will limit the possible FPS). Leave Film Grain setting off for both tests.

    (Windows Experience Index available under My Computer Properties. Both benchmarks are higher number = better. I will research this number based on the part details you provide)

    FPS would be screen resolution dependent.

    You have a really good base to build upon, add a bit more of the same ram, chuck in a nice solid state and get a better GFX card. I'd recommend the new AMD range, a r7 260X retails for around 170 with 2Gb of ram would boost your system two fold

    After doing the benchmarking and seeing my GPU is no longer in the top 30 (was there for well over a year since I bought it).. definitely this year going to build a new PC.. :p

    Interesting to see the benchmarks for the r9 290x and 780. 290x has the 780 covered in everything these days. Where did you get those results from?
  12. Both are great cards which perform quite similarly and there isn't a massive difference in price (290x is a bit more expensive). Both have their positives - with the GTX 780 you get Nvidia's (imo) better drivers/software and Shadowplay and with the 290X there's Mantle coming soon which looks very promising.

    On pure performance, the 290X is probably slightly ahead, but either of them will pump out fantastic graphics and are well ahead of the PS4/XB1.

    Also, how's 1440p? I just switched from the Xbox 360 which usually does 720p or less, 30fps or less with no AA/AF etc to this new PC which can comfortably do 60fps at native 1080p with all settings ultra on most games. It's a mindblowing difference and it looks incredible, I can barely imagine what 1440p, 4K or 120Hz must look like!

    Praise GabeN! :D

    Interesting how my CPU and GPU is not as powerful as rajatGod, yet get better FPS. Wonder if that has to do with the SSD. Might move CA onto the mechanical drive and see if I get any difference in performance, although technically it's probably the OS being on the SSD that is giving the increase. We'll see.

    After testing.. dropped FPS by about 2.. oh well.. haha

    1440p is very noticeable on certain games and not so on others. I can't turn back to 1080p after playing a game at 1440p. Also you don't need as much AA on 1440p.

    The only time you will get a massive difference is screens over 30+ inch.

    My screen was only $380 yet it is sublime.

    AMD are definitely aiming solely towards gaming from now on so there products will only get better. I was an Nvidia fan until I got the 290x. Combined with water cooling, it is incredible. 60+ solid fps with BF4 on max settings. INSANE!
