i have amd phenom II x6 1075t with 7970 ghz but my gpu only runs 50% of his power. co can this CPU handle the amd 7970 ghz edition ?

What resolution are you using? Also some games use more CPU power than others.

well i didnt try the 1920X1080 yet my screen support 1440X900
ultra settings in battlefield 3 : 55 40 fps with x8 AA and every thing on ultra

far cry 3 : 44-28 fps also on ultra settings 1440X900

That certainly sounds like its the CPU holding the card back run GPUz to check what the GPU usage is and task manager to check the CPU. If the CPU if nearly always at 100% and graphics card much lower then that confirms it.

my CPU usage is 56 % but i couldn't and my GPU still hitting the 63% as maximum performance so what should i do now. should i get a new power supply ?

my CPU usage is 56 % to 69 % thats the best and my GPU usage is 50% as a minimum and 63 % as a maximum performance

cpu usage doesnt always have to do with bottle necking. its the IPC that matters. and for the 7970 the 1100t cant keep up with it. you will need atleast need an fx8350 to not bottleneck it. but ur still going to get great fps with the 1100t and that gpu, id upgrade ur cpu next

so, that means i dont have to exchange my power supply for a TX650 corsair ? and my CPU cant handle the 7970


would you like to prove it for me ?

im not aware of ur current psu or other parts, but if you were thinking og getting a 650watt tx corsair i would actualy advise against that because theres not much a buffer zone, you should be aiming for a 750 watt psu, you have a p2 1075 and 7970 which draw quite a bit of power. it would be smart to get a 750 watt for overclocking and to actually have a bufferzone and futureproof your pc. your cpu can handle the card just fine but it is slowing it down only a little bit, not worth the money to buy a whole new cpu you can get 60 fps just about with that current set up. ur good for now what is ur psu right now? ALSO just because ur gpu is 50% usage that doesnt mean its bottlenecked because ur probably not playing a game that can utilize the whole strgth of the 7970... so theres no point in using all of its power if it doest need to. what games are you playing and whats the scenario ur doing to put ur gpu under load?

thanks for the great reply..
well i have tried many things and my cpu were going really faster when i used to have the 260 gtx black edition and now after i upgraded my GPU to the 7970 i feel that my cpu is not working like with the 260 gtx plus i know that the 260 gtx needs more power than the 7970 with the 500 psu




i play far cry 3 with 1440X900 ultra video settings FPS between 40 and 30 all the time and when i push it a little harder it goes down the 30 fps

i play battlefield 3 with 1440X900 ultra settings but its quit good for the 1440X900 50 90 fps
and im thinking of getting a new psu and if it helps my GPU is ghz edition i didnt OC it

gtx 260 is oldddddd, im not sure how the games seemed smoother with it. maybe ur 7970 needs a driver update. also unless the fps are actually better with the 260 ur probably just looking to hard. fps dont usually lie.
i would get a new psu ur borderline with ur 500 watt.. it wont help out ur fps tho. the only way to get more fps is to overclock ur 1075t and u will notice a good difference with atleast 500 mhz overclock. if u overclocked ur 1075t with that 500 watt psu you have now youll probably kill it in 6 months time. i would get a 750 watt bronze certidied, or silver certifed psu and overclock the 1075t for sure.

so getting a new psu wont help that much without OC my cpu right ?

thats right. overclocking that cpu will really help ur gaming fps thou

As mentioned a new power supply wont increase ur frames, but its give u room to overclock both the cpu and gpu, which there saying the cpu overclock will increase ur framerate in return, while giving u room with the power supply not getting to its max wattage like u would have with an overclock with ur 500watt.

my 1055t with a 400mhz overclock and R6770 HD barely ran on a cheap 500watt raidmax psu(It ran i didnt trust it running for long). so i got a Corsair GS700 to be safe and run crossfire as soon as i replace my motherboard, i mean with 700watts at the momment its overkill as my 6770 uses half the power as ur 7970. psu recommendation would be a corsair 750watt cx/tx, a ocz fatality, rosewill capstone, or xfx, all usually modular bronze certified or higher and $90-120

For comparision my friend runs a 670gtx with his 1090t with no overclock and his frames are nothing to get upset at lol thats in bf3 @1080p dont remember exact frames but def close to 670 benchmark charts

at 1440x900 resolution your not going to be getting much gpu useage, the gpu is not being pushed at all. It is built for 1920x1080 or higher.

well if that right i should only trust the corsair products cuz i need like 700 watts at least to be able to OC my cpu, and my GPU is ghz edition so i dont think that i can OC it
thanks for the great reply and im trying to get a 700 gs btw cuz i dont want to OC my cpu to the max just going with the auto OC switcher that in my main board cuz its the safer solution :)

my point is im not feeling it faster with anything at all not with gaming either

i was thinking of getting this power supply XILENCE XP750 GAMING EDITION 750 WATT
so can this psu handle the OC ??

yo dont auto overclock ur cpu its nto safer. take menual control of ur voltages and clock speed ull have to learn how to. i have a 8350 stable at 4.6 ghz, 600mhz overclock is pretty good for a fx8350. but about auto overclocking it doesnt properly set ur voltages and ur overclock will not be stable ull blue screen and have games crash. ive tried auto OC many times all were not stable voltages... lol it set my fx8350 to 1.55 volts only with a 200 mhz overclock. thats way off. prime 95 will error out after a few seconds of stress testing. so dont use auto overclock eveeeer,

I think your PSU is holding your system back as it's not giving that 7970 enough juice to do it's job. My 960T @4.25Ghz handles 2 6950's with no bottleneck.
And that is as a quad... BF3 is a CPU whore especially in multiplayer. It will use whatever you give it.

OC your cpu and northbridge. Phenoms love a NB overclock, this is where you see performance gains.

my mother board is MSI 770-g45 so can that MB handle that much of OC ?

Yeah, i doubt it's the CPU bottlenecking it (at least not to that extent). I have a 1075t @ 3.2 ghz and a gtx670 and run bf3 at 80fps avg (65 fps low - 190 high) all ultra and 8xaa, over and underclocking the gpu lowers and raises my fps so if the cpu is bottlenecking at all, it isn't much.

Update: sorry about raising this thread from the dead, didnt look at the date :S. Leaving it here incase it's helpful for someone else.

Have you tried installing the .net famework and the latest beta driver? I had this issue a week ago. When I install those two, the performance greatly increased. before installing the softwares, I only have an average fps of not more than 35fps when playing ac3 at max settings. And my windows experience index rating was 6.0/7.9. But when I installed the needed drivers, everything changed. My gpu's rating got a perfect score of 7.9 and fps went up to 50-60. We have the same cpu. My gpu is hd 7850 2gb 256 bit.
