More about : low fps 5770 card

August 18, 2010 8:52:22 PM

Hello, I am new to all of this, but I just got a sapphire ATI RADEON 5770 HD graphics card, and a fatal1ty 550W psu, and 4gb g.skill DDR2

also my computer Pentium Dual Core @ 2.5 GHZ

OK basically my problem is that I installed all this stuff into my Dell Inspiron 530 running Windows Vista 32 bit(btw) and I downloaded the newest drivers, and I went to play Oblivion and I'm only getting around 20 FPS.

I did a Benchmark test and here's what I got:

Graphics 3D - Complex = 30.2 FPS

Graphics 3D - Direct X 10 = 20.8 FPS

Is there any other information that would help someone figure out this terribly low fps?

If you are getting low fps, it can be your processor. Check your cpu temperatures. And in which slot you installed the card is it pci express x16 give me your specs.

Your proc is chocking the hell out your gpu. All i can say is you need to clock that thing up to at least 3.5. If that doesnt help your situation then its time for an upgrade plain and simple. I dont think your gonna get very good results out that chip even overclocked.

Sorry

is there a easy guide to OC'ing? Maybe it would be best if I just buy a new processor. What would be a good choice for my dell inspiron 530? thanks for your help.

it's between these two

Intel Core i3-550 Clarkdale 3.2GHz - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

OR THE

Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 Wolfdale 3.0GHz - Intel Core 2 Duo E8400 Wolfdale 3.0GHz

Which do you guys think is the best?


The socket you have is 775. The i3 is on socket 1156 so the i3 wont work for you unless your going to do a ram change and mobo but I dont think thats an option. The core 2 duo is a great gaming chip. You just have to see if your mobo can support the core 2 duo. If it can then that would give you more performance out of your 5770.

Thanks for your input. I was thinking about actually keeping my current core 2 duo that came with my Dell. I was doing some research and I read that my chip can easily be OC'ed to 3.0 ghz

Only problem is my BIOS are locked so I will need to get a new motherboard. Below are a case and motherboard and I was wondering if they would work :

Antec Three Hundred Black Steel - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...

and

ASUS P5N-D LGA 775 NVIDIA nForce 750i SLI ATX Intel Motherboard - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E168...


All input is very much appreciated. I just started getting into this stuff and I've just been doing non stop reading. I am excited so thanks in advance.
