Hey

Specs:
2 x 7870 at 1.1ghz
Stock i7 3770k
12gb 1600mhz DDR3
Vertex 4 128gb

My question is this, why is my frame rate so low. I have seen countless videos on youtube with weaker systems plow right through it! xD I know my system isn't the greatest, but it was the best I could afford and it only runs 1920x1080... I don't even need clear answers for this, I just would appreciated some feedback on where potential problems could lay. I also have system mechanic power mode or some such running, which shuts down background programs. If I didn't provide enough information, just let me know and I will do my best to address it ^_^

PS I placed this in the crossfire section as single card or both, make little difference. Oddly enough all my other games benefit from having the two in crossfire.

Kind Regards and thankyou in advance!

disable crossfire, see if your performance improves.
TW games have issues running on xfire.

When did you update your Motherboard last? Flash your bios? BTW your set up will run anything you throw at it on ultra or almost ultra probably for another 2 years. The new GPU's are just rebrands and a crossfire 7870 is just as fast as the top tier cards only by negligible difference. You basically have a top of the line system

Thanks for all your help. Sorry for the late reply! And my board is brand new.. z77 UD5H, I didn't think I needed to update the bios xD I just hate the fact I can't max it, maybe it's the VRAM filling? It always seems to be a 1.9gb >_>

for 1080p, no way vram will will fillup...... you could try the latest 14.04 drivers, but uninstall old drivers correctly....
