Im wondering if something is wrong..

so i just bought a new graphics card, Gigabyte hd 7970 and im still getting a bit low FPS when i play games.

I have updated the drivers and everything and i dont think my CPU suck that much. the only thing that im worried about is my power supply....

AMD Phenom II X6 1090T Black Edition
Crucial DDR3 1333MHz 8GB KIT CL9
Corsair SSD Force Series 3, 60GB 2.5"
WD Caviar® Green™ 1TB SATA 2.0

    Hi :)

    That list is fine...the cpu is a strong one and the psu if fine for the 7970...

    Tell us PRECISELY what fps you are getting and in WHICH games ?

    All the best Brett :)
  2. Some games like Planetside 2 just don't do good on Pc's. They are ported for consoles and because of that they have lousy pc perfomance even when the computer has good hardware.
  3. Planetside 2? Are you high? That's a PC exclusive.
  4. Check your settings in the AMD control center, maybe reset to default.
    Also make sure you don't have any unwanted programs running?

    You didn't understand me I was talking about two different things. Some games are not ported for PC's some like Planet Side 2 and others are give horrible performance when they are in their beta state.
