Low FPS on Radeon HD 7950

I just upgraded from a 5750 to a 7950 and was hoping to get a huge fps increase. But it seems to be around the same 30-40 FPS on most games and 60 on some when running low. My CPU and GPU usage is usually around 50-60% and the temps are around 50C. I tried the standard driver and the 13.11 beta driver, and updated my bios already. I'm out of options hopefully someone can help.

Thanks for reading :) 

Specs:
Processor: AMD FX-8120 Eight-Core 3.1GHz
RAM: 8GB
GPU: AMD Radeon HD 7950 Sapphire
Mobo: GA-970A-UD3
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit

If your CPU is at 60% then it's most likely completely maxed out in the context of gaming. But what games are you referring to? What kind of frames do you get on high/ultra?

Well on saints row 3 on ultra it goes to 60 frames but stutters to 20-30 when I'm in the city.
And on skyrim it's around 50 on medium

Yeah most of the other posts with the exact same specs as mine can run games at very high fps but I don't know what the problem is with mine.

You're going to be heavily CPU bound in Skyrim on medium, your CPU will only be able to push ~35 fps in some cases, so you might as well max the graphics out for some IQ since you're frame limited. I don't know about SR3, but I've heard it's not too well optimized which means it's also a candidate for a CPU bottleneck.

So would you recommend overclocking or just upgrading my CPU?
Also would the stuttering in games like minecraft or sleeping dogs could be because of the cpu?

Do you even know what a bottleneck is?

This dude does not have a bottleneck!

He might have a bad card or something because his specs look fine.
