gpu bottlenecking fx-6300

I just upgraded my system to 8gb of DDR3 with an asus M5A97 mono. My processed is a new and fx-6300. When I installed this instead of an improvement it slowed down my whole computer. I also have windows 8 pro 64 bit

    Oh sorry I have a xfx radeon 6770.
  3. no the CPU shouldn't bottleneck it. nor the GPU.
  4. Did you uninstall drivers then reinstall? Also good to reinstall windows after a large hardware change. Also make sure the motherboards bios is up to date

    I'm wondering if it could be my HDD It is an old WD5000AAKS and on on windows experience it scored a 5.9 while my CPU GPU and memory all scored between 7.3-7.5

    Same thing I asked before. Can't help you if you won't listen. And no it wouldn't give worse performance because of your hard disk. Worst case scenario is it would be the same as before.

    I just reinstalled windows 8 pro 64 bit and updated the BIOS and reinstalled the drivers but the same thing is happening its slower than my old athlon 64 x2 processed I had before this one
  8. By "slower" what exactly do you mean? Boot time? Opening stuff or the time it takes to compile something

    Every thing from web browsing to playing assassins creed. It just freezes every couple of second no matter what I am doing.
  10. Hmm what's your psu?

    LOGISYS Computer PS575XBK 575W
  12. That explains it :-) logisys are junk. I had one and it could barely run an i3 with 7770 (still had some problems with it) and seeing as how your 6300 uses more power it must not be getting what it needs

    New PSU didn't do anything. I just finished installing it but all it did was make my computer louder. My computer still freezes all the time
