    After about six months away from PCars, I came back and found...

    Yep. It's still really good.

    Seems like the tires are a bit more responsive in general. Overall it feels more responsive. I mean, I was happy before, and I'm happy now.

    Got a new graphics card, and it turns out the GTX 980Ti can really put the hammer down on this game. Still a really great looking game you guys made.

    I lapsed on a lot of the DLC, though. I'm gonna have to get caught up on that. I took a spin around the test track, and that's a hell of a lot of fun. Pretty cool stuff. I also see that my record at Nurburgring in the Mustang GT has fallen to 6th worldwide. I guess I'll have to settle that with a little dust-up.

    Still, I've really gotta say: This is still hands-down the best racing experience I've ever had in a game.

    I have taken time to make such comments in the past, but I just again wanted to extend a thank you to Ian and the team for giving me this outlet from the world. My depression has improved a lot, and weirdly that was the reason I got away from the game for a bit. The game kinda pulled me out of the deepest pit I'd been in for a long, long time, and through therapy and some medication I've been enjoying life a ton. Playing tons of guitar (I've somehow managed to get two new ones and an amp), doing a bit more reading, socializing, etc...

    I was really in the lowest point of my adult life when this game released, and it got me through it, so that I could live to see another day, and that means everything to me.

    You guys kick ass. Thanks again and always.

    Your post is too positive and doesn't fit with the majority of this forum. Please adjust accordingly.

    Anyway, to return to the OP: what are your complete system specs? I'm wondering whether I would see a difference if I'd switch from my 2xGTX780 cards to a single GTX980Ti.

    I'm sure you're aware, but if you can hang on for a bit, we're not far from GTX1070/80 and the inevitable price drops for GTX9xxx. Probably 4-5 months off but 9 series must be about as expensive as they will ever be right now. Still, it's tempting isn't it?

    I just switched to Msi 970 OC edition because my Gtx580 died and i can run almost maxed out (car/track at ultra) with MSAA (i could use DS too) and SMAA

    It's a brilliant card, probably the best balance between price and performance out there at the moment imo.
