XFX 6770 Settings Suck

I had to change to a from a MSI 570 GTX to an 6770 HD due to funding shortage. Now, it did research and

the 6770 got very good reviews so I figured it would handle BF3, COD:BO and the like but I have had

nothing but crappy video since I got it. Are my settings to high do you guys think? Or is the card maybe just

bad?

My specs are as follows:

i5-2500K

MSI P67A-C43 (B3) LGA 1155 M/B

8GB DDR3 1600

XFX 6770 HD 1GB

23" Samsung LCD 2048 X 1152 resolution

Windows 7 Prem. 64 bit


Thanks in advance

Scott

I find it hard to believe that the native resolution of your monitor is that high. try setting it where it should be........... and the 6770 on a 23 monitor makes no sense to me. lower everything if you want to play BF3.

i have the original version of the 6770 ... the 5770, without the overclock the 6770 comes with(+the 6xxx badge) :) 

I've played and finished COD:BO on rig 2 in my member config with it powering a 22" P2250 monitor @ 1920x1080 native res. Either your resolution is messed up or you have a bad set of rams.

for BF3 you'd need to dial down the settings - if you've read this http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/battlefield-3-graph...

That is a sweet monitor! My 23in Samsung is only 1920 x 1080. That monitor is also your problem. A HD5770/6770 is more a good card for 1440 x900 or 1280 x 1024. It is not up to 1920 x1080 gaming on anything but low/medium settings and is sure as hell not up to anything higher than that. To be honest even in crossfire you would be disappointed with anything over 1920 x 1080.

As I am sure you have figured out that is a huge step down from your old GTX 570. In fact it's about half.

Not sure what else I can do to help.

Yeah, I noticed it was a really really bad idea!!! So I just got an eVGA 560 Ti Superclock from Amazon.

So I hope it is better.

The 560Ti is a huge step up from the HD6770 and will play most games at 1920 x 1080 on high settings. The bad news is you still have a super high resolution monitor. To be honest even the GTX 570 you had was on the low end for that high a resolution.

Check out this article.

Even in SLI the GTX 560 Ti is not as good at super high res as you would think. You are reallly looking at GTX570s in Sli or even a GTX 580 to play all games with all the eye candy.

Sounds more like a work station monitor than a gamer. For something like that you need a card with 2gigs of vram...... 6950, etc. Too bad the 570 went belly up for you. would have been better. There has to be other resolutions the monitor supports. try lesser res. sounds like the only way out until you upgrade your card.
