Hi experts :) ,

I would like to ask you for help...regarding my VGA - SAPPHIRE HD 7950 OC.

I just get it 2 hours ago, I installed it (last drivers), run Battlefield3 and whoops - 6 FPS.

I'm thinking where should be the problem? Both 6pins power cables are plugged correctly to the power supply (OCZ 600W ModXStream Pro Power Supply).

It crossed my mind that "it switched" and windows (7 utli) start used GPU integrated in my CPU.( intel i5 2500k+)

Do you advise me pls, where I should to check it? (which GPU is in used..if external ati 7950 or GPU integrated in my CPU) and how to switch it to ati? ( I tried to find it in BIOS, but nothing's there.)

MotherBoard: ASUS P8P67 REV 3.1 chipset : Intel P67 (Cougar Point) [B3]. From that I know, only chipset Z67 is able to switch between GPU in CPU and external GPU

I you have some tips, where should be the problem, I will appreciate it.

Thansk for all tips..

as I mentioned in my first post

... I tried to find it in BIOS, but nothing's there..., => so that yes, I tried it, but there is nothing related to switch GPUs..

Maximum Bus setting = >> This can not be a problem? There should not be 16x ??
