    No, chance. I have to say that I'm sad and that I like the tweaking aspect of games, trying to eek out as much performance as possible with the same perceptible visual fidelity. Its nice to learn about all the ins and out of the settings and ini files. Yes, I am a blast at parties

    I only ever used it in Raptr cos it gave you some reward points for it but I usually forgot it was there. Now back on team green and not used GeForce Exp yet but If I was having trouble getting the balance I was after I would probably let it have a go.

    Yeh this is one reason why I don't use these programs either. My target is 55-60fps minimum, with anything of 60fps and above being acceptable for normal framerate. These optimization programs seem to think that we'll all be happy with a console like framerate. I might actually give them a shot if they had a target framerate option (or at least the Amd/Raptr thing) to use that as a base, then tweak settings to my liking from there.

    Re: QOTW: Do you auto-optimise your PC games?

    I use a R9 270x which is overclocked to the hilt and Raptr fails to acknowledge the extra horsepower. I also use Radeon Pro for SMAA injection and disable MSAA in my games. Using the auto optimization can work well for a standard configuration for users that don't like to tinker but for enthusiasts they fail to make any sense.

    Never. In fact I don't install Geforce Experience or any of the other junk Nvidia want's us to install. I download the latest driver, select custom install and just install the gpu and physx drivers.

    Re: QOTW: Do you auto-optimise your PC games?

    I didn't used to, but having recently upgraded to a GTX 970 I've been giving it a go. Sometimes it works well, other times not. I've often found I've had to knock settings down a notch or two from the GeForce Experience's optimised settings - but I largely suspect that this is because my CPU is starting to become a bit of a bottleneck.

    No the geforce experience optimization thing really sucks. For example on GTA V it recommends me to enable all of the advanced settings (aka the fps killers) and run gta v at 30fps. Nooo thanks

    In GFE, click the little wrench under a game's settings list. You can pick whether to use settings optimized for performance, or looks, or somewhere in between.

    Re: QOTW: Do you auto-optimise your PC games?

    I use it to get a rough idea, and then turn of all post processing effects as they don't give as big a benefit as the extra FPS from having it off.

    I generally slide the slider towards performance as well, as games look good enough on medium @ 1440P. Just enjoy the smoothness.

    Used GeForce Experience, but eventually removed due to the massive resource drain on PC start-up (background service)

    Re: QOTW: Do you auto-optimise your PC games?

    Lately I start playing a game at the default settings on install, after playing for a while I'll use the GeForce experience optimised settings and then tweak ithem if I feel that I am not getting a high enough frame rate.

    Re: QOTW: Do you auto-optimise your PC games?

    Never used it, because it installs a background service and has processes running even when inactive. I hate stuff like that and in any case I'm perfectly happy to tweak game settings on my own, so I uninstalled it immediately. Had it actually been benign and let me use it only when I wanted to I'd have kept it and at least given it a whirl, but I consider programs like that as somewhat akin to malware.

    Just remove it from start up folder and you can just use it when you want to.
