I am experiencing a very strange problem with my sandy bridge pc
I use an Intel I5 2500 Cpu
a Foxconn H67m-v
an Ati HD 5770 1Gb vga
8gigs ram 1333mhz ddr3 transcend
Hdd:500gb sata 3 seagate
i use this pc mostly for games
and my problem is that my fps in some games are strangely low.
benchmarks and other stuff like that show the expected scores so i am little confused....
what may cause that problem and if its harware i would like to hear some suggestions on how to improve with low cost.
Battlefield 3 fps:25 and droping
TESV:30 and droping when lots going on :S
i play at 1080p but from what i see in benchmarks and the overall image of my pc is relatively low considering similar systems.Could i get bottlenecked by my GPU?Or motherboard?should i consider a move to amd platform?i am little confused...
similar setup i5 4.3 ghz and 5770 playing Bf3 at @1680 resolution ultra settings without AA efects. I can get min 30 fps going 40 over.Wouldn't go to 1080p with my setup .
Same with Skyrim all on high including 2 AA anything past this settings will make my game lag a bit.
Yes the videocard is the problem not the cpu.
what to do ?
You can try oc a bit this is optional ofcourse.
Lower settings find the best settings for your needs.
Sell your card buy better one. (but new cards are coming next year midrange prabably february )
Speaking from a budget point of view for me the 5770 does really well but if i would go for 1080p ultra settings all the time and have the money for it i would go for a minimum 6950.( some good deals for the 1 gb version try to search for it)
If they announce new cards any moment now next year all this high end cards will lower in price.
I like nvidia also especialy for the phsyx but prices war always higher.
