I'm using an intel core i5-3470 and a gigabyte r9 280x combo. the mobo is gigabyte ga-b75m-hd3. My monitor is a Samsung 793df(1024 x 768). When I play assasins creed at ultra I get 60fps and I get the same seed on lowest settings. the same thing happens with tomb raider 2013. 60 fps @ Ultra and Low. My driver is catalyst 14.1 beta. using windows 8 64 bit and 8 gigs of ram

It sounds like the vertical sync is on (v-sync). Open the catalyst control center (CCC), go to "3D application settings", and check if the v-sync is enabled.

Maybe vertical sync is on , you either have to turn it off at amd control center or however its named or I directely prefer to turn it off and on in the video settings of each game . Try and tell us

I doubt your screen can go above 60hz anyway so going above 60FPS will get you no where anyway. If u want to go above 60FPS first turn of V sync either ingame or on the GFXs control application but unless you misspelt your screen it won't matter

I.. I think the obvious problem here is V-sync, your monitor has a refresh rate of 60hz i guess. At any rate, you can disable it in catalyst control center..
I tried out those drivers myself and i was not locked to 60fps.

You have v-sync on which caps the fps to your monitor refresh rate which is 60Hz so 60fps. The human eye can't perceive greater than 60fps so why try and get more.

You meant 'vertical' right?

although best is to have vsync on to prevent tearing and give you a fluid gameplay.
you need to disable it from the game and the controll panel.

V-sync is good if you don't mind the inherent input lag it gives you with your video card fps higher than 60 or the stuttering when the video card fps are below 60 (when video card fps is below 60, V-sync drops the output to 30fps). For those reasons, when you're playing multi-player shooters, V-sync can give you a real disadvantage.

For single-player versions of any game or MMORPG and RTS type games, V-sync is OK.

Wow such a good GPU and so much wasted potential by using low resolution monitor, heck even a 100 dollar gpu could give 60fps ultra at 1024x768

LOL Exactly even my sister was smart enough to know to upgrade her 1440x900 monitor to a 1920x1080 before getting her GTX 770

That's a good point you brought up about the resolution. Your PC is less apt to offload some video processing tasks to the GPU at lower resolutions creating a CPU bottle-necking situation. A 1080p monitor or above is going to help the situation out.
