Problem with my 5770

Hi guys, I have recently bought a ATI 5770 as recommended by some of the forum members for my pc. But while playing games I found out it is not able to give expected speed in some games which I have tried so far like cricket 07 and spiderman web of shadows, whereas in other games like assassins creed 2, NFS undercover, shift and GTA 4 it works very fine. I cant understand these games have much higher requirements then the previously mentioned ones then why cricket 07 and spiderman web of shadows run slow? My integrated graphics card was also giving me full speed in cricket 07.
I generally play games at 1366 X 768 with everything at high or medium. But changing these settings do not work. Iam using driver version 10.9, but changing driver also does not help. What should I do to play these games with full speed?

    Wow, HD5770 at 1366x768 is an overkill.
    Anyway, what is your FULL specs? CPU? RAM? Mobo? PSU?
    Are you sure 6pin power connector is properly attached?
    You said that only cricket and spiderman are your problem, seeing the other games are fine then I think you have problem with the game itself (cricket and spiderman).

    Iam using a
    core 2 quad Q8200 2.33 Ghz
    2Gb DDR2 Ram
    500w coolermaster PSU
    For the 6pin power connector I ve checked it and it is fine and properly connected.
    Iam using the card in a pcie-16 x1 slot could it be causing problem?
  3. pcie x1? What is your motherboard?
    You can use this to check whether your card running at x1/x4/x8/x16:

  5. I can't find anything about your board on the net...
    But like I said earlier, your other games are just fine, so your problem is with Cricket/spiderman...
  6. IS your card staying in idle mode while running those games ?? -- the 5770 will downclock when it is not being used for graphic intensive apps so it might just be that the games are low enough on the usage requirements that it is not speeding up when running them.

    well the activity meter shows about 29-30% while playing spiderman. the temp of the card is also fairly low with 32C , so it cant be a issue of overheating.
  8. I play spiderman with v-sync on, could it be causing problem?
  9. Then try turning it off...
  10. Iam playing the with v-sync off, it is making it faster but at some places it is the same . Looks like I have to play like this only. Anyway thanks guys for your help
