Great to hear! Hope you enjoy it. The joy of games nowadays is that things can be updated. Give it time. See you on the track!

Woo i need a new video card ,,my 280 not enough ,, with 3 1080p screens im only getting 30 to 50 fps ,with thunder storms only 25 fps , but even at 25 this game plays smooth as glass !! how is that even possible ?? would i be better off waiting for the new 390x or would the 290x give me 30 more frames ? or , would another 280x in crossfire be better ? i am going to get another copy for my son donnie ,he loves this sim , its the 1st time he has ever played a racing game lol

For PC upgrading advice you'd better start a separate thread instead of using a thread about a totally different topic ;)

Welcome dice65! So glad you're enjoying the game. Here are some things you can do to help your framerate:

Reduce reflections and environment mapping, trust me, it's very hard to see the difference and those settings make a big impact. I would also turn off detailed grass, at the speeds your are going 'round the track, you shouldn't be looking at the grass, mate! You can also set motion blur to lowest, and reduce shadows to medium. For myself, I don't bother with AA, I've never understood the sacrifice made to the frame-rates for eye-candy like jaggies. Again, if you're so busy noticing the slightly jagged edges of some objects, you're not really racing are you, lol! That's just my own thoughts on it anyway, and I know I'm in the minority. I hope these tips help get your frame-rates up higher and enjoy the game!

Rather not go sli. Too many issues in lots of games with that.

Agreed. AMD video cards and cpu's in general perform less well than their intel and nvidia counterparts in this game. SLI/Crossfire are both problematic for some people. Early in development I started off with an AMD cpu and video card (Phenom II quad-core at 3.2ghz and hd6800 to be exact) and later added a second hd6800 but was less than happy with the results so I upgraded to an i5@4.2ghz and an nvidia GTX770 4gb. Huge difference in quality and frame-rates. Zero issues with stuttering or lag related to sli/xfire.
