So I just received my EVGA GTX 570 in the mail today and installed it with 5 case fans and 3 of them at 2000rpms, so there isn't a heating issue.
It's supposed to have great performance reviews and is one of the best video cards on the market to date, but when I tested it on Metro 2033 and Borderlands, it doesn't run as smooth as it should and I'm worried if it's a bottle-necking problem or not. Here is my build as follows:
ASUS M4A88TD-V EVO
AMD Phenom II X4 965 BE 3.4 Ghz
8 GB (4x2GB) Kingston HyperBluX DDR3 1600 RAM
320 GB HD
ASUS DRW-24B3ST 24x CD/DVD Drive
770-watt Thermaltake Tough Power PSU
4x Rosewell Blue LED Fans 120mm 2000rpm
1x 1200rpm fan
EVGA GTX 570 1280MB 320-bit VGA
Am I missing something here? Some feedback would be nice.
PS: My MOBO DOES support 1600mhz RAM, it even says so in my manual.
