First gaming computer and am looking to get the most out of it. Apache GE72 2QE with the GTX 965m graphics. Would someone more knowledgeable than I help me out with suggestions for graphic settings etc. The normal computer settings I am familiar with,(win 3.1 was first os) but getting the most performance from dual graphics (not sli) is a little steeper learning curve. Setting up quick keys, performance profiles, msi 200 mouse settings, etc. Am starting out with fallout 4. first thing it says "setting video quality to low" HUH?! This is a 2015 computer. entry/mid level laptop should have more than that in it. Tried disabling the intel graphics, but the game became unplayable on the gtx card alone. So what am I doing wrong? Anyway, this probably the wrong forum for my question, but, no other topic fit as well. So I understand that the graphics are handed off as demand requires, but can I set a preference as to which graphics card is used and when? How about the mouse response? DPI settings? Set response and acceleration to low, but it screams across the screen so I lowered the dpi setting and slowed it down to a sprint instead of a warp. Have changed settings in a controlled way, (writing down settings and changes that resulted) but that does not seem to work on a curve. Things change in an unmapable way. I'm sure that I'm not the only newbie to have gone thru this. Any help short of a new/better/bigger/faster computer will be eagerly tried and reported on back to the forum. So now I have to fill this out to 350 words. I'm not looking for the easy way out (read someone else do it for me) but would like some guidance. The worst part is that I am a fairly advanced Linux user, but we are not in bash here. The next game to install will actually be the Witcher games, and am really wanting to understand the settings better before set up. So,  once again Thank You in advance. Have tried searching for forums/blogs/articles, but am drawing a blank. There are no gaming Cafe' around here, or I would show up and buy another gamer his fill in Redbull to help me. by the way, for me, it was JOLT COLA. All the sugar and twice the caffeine.

See this video : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DzGugS05wo0
This will help you setup the NVidia driver to be used when you play Fallout 4.
Are you playing it through Steam? If so, in the video when they navigate to the game folder you'll need to go to your steam\steamapps folder and find the games executable there (assuming that it isn't listed in the list of games automatically....it might be).

The rest the video can explain.

There are a lot of people who still prefer the classical use of keyboard and mouse, plus the quality is also higher. With so many PC games, there are many tutorials, but to record them some kind of software is required. I want to know about the best game recording software.
