  1. i think the drivers are creating problems so it would be best if u reinstall the windows and apply the latest catalyst drivers from the the website not from the cd that's outdated...
  2. It is possible that you did a drop in performance, very little difference between GT630 and R7-250.

  3. You went from a low end graphics card, to another low end graphics card...
  4. still... 250 should be noticeably faster than a 630.

  5. What PSU do you have?
  6. Im using sapphire r7 250 1gb gddr5 and got 40 fps on bf4 ultra . There must be some error in drivers try re installing them . Also try checking if your graphics card fan wire just got detached as it might get detached while placing it . Try attaching it again and see your pc work like a charm

  9. okk that's very good for a card in that price range but was it 1080 p res ?because my friend is playing ac4 in high settings at 900p resolution with msaa and vsync off and getting around 30 fps with the same card...

  13. Ok maybe, I gave you guys a lack of Info. So yeah, bought the new Graphics Card, Installed the Latest Driver Immediately on SAFE MODE,Played BF4 on ULTRA, with a frame rate around 40- 60!! I was very surprised. The Next Day, Opened up the Computer, and I could feel something's wrong. The boot up was a bit slow, When I played BF4, Next thing you knew It freezes, tried out the Lowest setting, Still Freezes. Some other games like, Assassin's Creed 4 seems to be fine, I can play it on High with 30 FPS, But I seem to notice some freezing, but not as worst as the Freezing that Occurs in BF4, not sure if the PC is Bottlenecked or Not, so I hope I can find an Answer Sooner or Later :)
