Hey reader.

So i Have the following setup
Core i7 (1366) 2.6ghz cpu
x58motherboard (asuss p6T)
6gb tripple channel ram 1600mHz
64GB SSD with Windows 7 installed/ standered softwares like itunes etch
500Gb HDD with games etch on.
ATi (AMD) 5870 graphics card.

My problem is over last few days i have been having major FPS/loading issues. Iplay mostly SWTOR and dawn of war 2.
I am lucky to get more then 20fps and even when i lower the setting there is little improvements, sometime just a few frames more.

Last night i uninstalled my ATi drivers and software and run both games, to wtich both ran okay a tad lower then normal, for exapmple the performance test in DOW2 gave me 55fps as to my normal 70fps (with problem i get 15fps).

I reinstalled a slightly later version of the catalist and driver last night and turned all off after.
today when i loaded up i was back to bad loading times/fps again. so thought i would uninstall my drivers, after leaving it running the uninstall for a while it finaly progressed a step further and then failed to uninstall.

Anyone have an idea what this may be? my HDD the card or just the drivers?

Just download the Catalyst Application Profiles that have just been released.
CAP 1 and CAP 2
It ought to solve your problem.

Although I's suggest downloading them directly from the AMD website and not this one that I have posted here..... this is just a read.
