Run  C:\Windows\System32\dxdiag.exe when you get card installed and see if dxdiag.exe report video card as a 960 like my dxdiag.exe did.

Also can click on "Save all Information" and get a more detail report on video card, like how much vram video card got:

8 Gb RAM
GeForce GTX 1050 Ti - the only component I got recently.



I see you have R7 200, I had that one too before. NCG became unplayable after dx11 gimmick, I upgraded but previews build still didn't run as smooth as this one.

Yeah hopefully the game gets more optimized for the guys that have medium rig systems that cannot afford better pc components.  Before final release that is.

Next time buy pc parts from neweggs.com because its the cheapest place!! Gtx 1060 cards are near same price with 1050ti or with RX 580 cards (best Amd cards)!

Building new gaming computer next spring, current computer almost 6 years old.

I hope I can pick up a 1060 6GB vram for $250 come March. Right now the 1060 a $300 video card.  :(   I prefer to only spend from $200-$250 on a video card.

https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814125901

Got my eye on this one since it has 2 x Dual-link DVI-D for my 2 monitors. Seeing at Newegg, most the video cards only have 1 Dual-link DVI-D. :(

Hmm, should I upgrade my 19" CRT monitor? Still does a good job for me since I only running at 1280x960 and the eye candy turned up on high settings.

Never buy monitors by mail any more, after I bought monitor many, many years ago. Monitor arrive and turn out to be bad. Had to pay $30 to ship it back and get a replacement. Monitors is one thing I buy local.

While with my specs allow me to paly single with 24 bots without any problems, the multiplayer perfomance is drastically lower, borderline playable.
Since this time I did not buy the cheapers gfx possible I assume the processor is a bottleneck here. Since your's is  better than mine, amybe you'll also get better FPS.
I probably have to buy a newer processor and likely newer motherboard. I'm by no means poor, just too greedy to buy anything I don't feel definate need in.

Did you uninstall the AMD drivers before using the Nvidia card?
