Low performance! Need Help

Hello,

My computer is under performing. I am not new at building PC but i must say that ever since i graduated from college and started a family I can't keep up with the tech that well. This is my set up:

VGA MSI|R6790-2PM2D1GD5 HD6790 1G R
MB MSI P55-GD80 1156 RT
CPU INTEL|CORE I5 750 2.66G R
MEM 2Gx2|OCZ OCZ3P16004GK R
PSU ROSEWILL|RX850-S-B 850W RT

My FPS on BF3 in the lowest setting stays around 40 and drops down to 9 or 5 ( power point style) and on D3 i play with a friend with a computer that i s not as good as my and his FPS is much better. I don't know whats going on, I installed all drivers and BIO are up to date. Anyone has any idea on why that is?

HELP!:)

  1. get more ram, and upgrade your CPU and Mobo and VGA card
  2. The 750 should be plenty for that game I wouldn't worry about upgrading that, however I would put a nice overclock on it (overclocks pretty well.) 4gb is still adequate for ram, however the standard is becoming 8gb, I don't think that is holding you back in games though. What you need to upgrade would be the 6790, its a lower end gpu and BF3 really needs a beefy gpu to run nicely.
  3. What resolution are you playing at? For 720p, HD 6790 is more than enough. Get fraps and see how much FPS you are getting. See if it matches Benchmarks. Tomshardware has them. BTW which is the friends graphic card?

    true. im using a much lower card (HD 6770) @ 1000p, played BF3 on high settings without any issues.
  5. Check your windows power management settings, and power management settings in Catalyst (if there are any), make sure they are set for maximum performance. 4GB of ram is fine.

    Make sure your drivers are up-to-date. Get a hardware monitor to check your temps (and to ensure your GPU and CPU are being correctly clocked). CPU-z and GPU-z should do the trick.
