I've recently purchased a new graphics card, i bought the 6570. now, I know that this is not the most epic card ever and i shouldnt expect crazy performance out of it but i think i should be getting more out of it. Before this card i had a nVidia GT320.. yeah weird card i know. Ill provide a link at the end. Anyways, I would get over 150 fps in GTA:SA, and it would consistantly be over 100. Since i have installed the new card i will get random little freezes where my fps goes under 30 then right back up to over 100. Also, another game is COD:BO I used to be able to play this game at a decent frame rate, like over 50. not maxxed out but decent settings and now if i try at the same settings i will get like 25 fps. I really wouldnt be expecting much out of this card but its just the fact that people are running BF3 with this card and they have a worse cpu than i do.. I'm really let down by the 6570's performance so is there anything that i can do to improve it? or is there a reason why its being so sluggish?

150 FPS even in that old game is pretty amazing for the GT 320. What resolution is your monitor?

Did you uninstall the Nvidia drivers before removing the GT 320?

It's an area of potential problem that I would eliminate, yes. Go to Control Panel/Programs and Features. Scroll down until you come to the Nvidia stuff. Uninstall from there.

Ideally, you'd then want to uninstall the current AMD driver, reboot to safe mode and run Driver Sweeper. Have it remove any remnants of old NVIDIA, AMD, ATI gfx drivers it finds. Reboot and re-install the latest AMD driver found on their website.

Are you sure that was only a GT 320 you had?

I'm not sure about it being driver related, but it's best to eliminate the possibility. What has me scratching my head is the fact that the HD 6570 is performing about normal. It's a low end card. But the GT 320 (at your specs) is performing way above its potential.
As far as the freeze ups, how long do they last? Are they just stutters? Or actual momentary freezes?

I should have said that they are in every game like that, the frames will just dip down, i guess it would be a stutter. it lasts for like 1-3 seconds but its still very annoying. the GT320 would get 30-40 fps on GTA 4 at 1024x768 and low-medium settings. and minecraft would get anywhere from 150-300 fps maxxed lol. i would put the gt320 back in but it overheats horribly, like 105C then it shuts down lmao

Oh. I thought you were playing at your monitor's native resolution of 1600x900. That frame rate at 1024x768 is more realistic for the GT 320 then. Yeah, the HD 6570 should be a slight improvement on that. Try the driver wipe. In fact, after you've done that, run CCleaner and do the Clean and Registry portions both. That will fix any resource-wasting crap and registry errors that could be slowing down the system.

Well, with GTA:SA and minecraft i play at 1600x900 and with the more demanding games i would turn the resolution down.
