The Firepro isnt made for gaming its made for designing and stuff. Why would you spend 6000 pounds on a gaming rig? And pick that video card?

You could've built three, possibly four top gaming rigs for that....
As mentioned no ssd?
And having your O/s on a 2Tb drive is, well silly to be polite,
Graphics has been covered,
Serious overkill on the Psu and ram as well,
Did you build this yourself?
On purpose?

Firepro is a mega bad choice, these babies run awesome with a 7970 fitted

Refund the GPU, get atleast a 6870.....

Refund one 2TB HDD and get an SSD. Keep the other.

Return the PSU and downgrade to a 750W unless you wanna cross fire or quad fire.

Well your computer wasn't designed to play games well, but make sure you are using the latest Firepro drivers from AMD it can play games though not very well compared to 90% of all gaming GPU's. You might try and build a seperate cheaper machine for gaming if you are using that for work (Maya, max etc). As switching out that card for a gaming card will seriously kill your performance in those applications and also cause rendering issues in the program and introduce bugs.

Yea as said before, the GPU is just not made for gaming. The GPU itself along with drivers are geared towards realtime 3D rendering.

As suggested, get a gaming GPU and also get a SSD.

Not sure, but did you ask advice before buying this setup? Or if you did whoever gave you the advice needs to retake a few A+ classes.

I would make sure the BIOS is up to date and RAM timings are set according to what is on the sticks. If you are not sure how to do that, take the machine to a shop and get them to do it. Also, LOL.

Or for that budget, a HD6990. The heirarchy chart says it's the better card. (Or GTX 590)

Why not put 2 GTX 590 in SLI or 2 6990 in crossfire. If you have that kind of money to spend on a Computer, you are probably able to put another few bills to get these cards.
