I have Gigabyte's ATI 5970 GPU

I feel like it is not performing as well as it should for a high-end card when it was released 2-3 years ago

Is there a way to confirm its performance, could it be how I put my PC together that is making it handi-capped

help please!

Well use a benchmark tool like furmark http://www.ozone3d.net/benchmarks/fur/ and what are the full specs of your pc and what makes you think its not performing as it should

Well the benchmark for FFXIV:ARR was just recently released

I am hitting scores of 2000-3000s, while everyone else is hitting an average of 5k-6k, I can still run the game on maximum with a bit of lag that doesn't bother me,I am definitely in the minority

I bought the 5970 when it was still on top of every other GPU out there 2-3 years ago
