  2. Best answer
    watchdoogs will eat that system alive... right now watchdogs doesn't play well on top of the line brand new i7s and 780ti graphic cards... so having issues with it with that set up isn't that surprising. I know for a fact that 5800 probably isn't enough to play it... and a quad core phenom II running at 2.6ghz isn't enough either.

    I downloaded the latest driver AMD catalyst and in the options of it I can add a game to adjust the settings even more, so I did, and I turned down EVERYTHING to it's lowest and in the in-game settings to. It runs fine, smooth, but after a while of playing it, going into a new city kind of makes it freeze and unfreeze every 5 seconds and only gives me a minimum of 3 seconds to drive before it freezes me again.
  4. what fps? what cpu temp?
  5. Okay, while playing Watch Dogs my fps jumps up and down from 25-40fps but runs smooth because it's on low and the CPU temp is at 51.0c
