  1. What is the resolution of your monitor?
  2. 1680x1050
  3. Well then ideally, you should get high frame rates for any game.
    Your problem might be multi-fold & I'll try to help with everything.

    [1] With regards to the hardware part, first of all, make sure that you've installed the 4870X2 in the correct PCI-e X16 slot. The ASUS P6T has 3 PCI-e X16 slots, arranged in X16 X16 X4. Make sure you've installed the card in either of the first 2 slots. Go through your motherboard manual to see in which slot they've recommended installing the graphic card, & then make sure that it is installed there only.

    [2] Reinstall the 10.4 catalyst drivers again, after completely removing the pre-existing ones on the system.

    [3] The 4870X2 is known to run hot & the stock cooler is just about enough to cool it. Make sure there are no trailing cables near the card, or anything which might obstruct airflow to/from the card.

    Do all of this & then get back to us.
  4. ALL IS OK the idle of the card is 45c and hot ( i dont know but cooler is quiet because my previous card hd4870x2 overheat so i get new with new cooler but the problem in games dont go away :( .
    Reinstall catalyst - no Way
    Support gta4 Crossfire?
    or Core i7 2.67ghz good for my card? in gta 4 i mean
  5. I too would think it is the in installation of the video card
    Did you check the installation according to your manual?
