More about could holding back
  1. no. there is no way a 3570k at stock wlll bottleneck that card.. thats a mid-level card. if anything, its the other way around.
  2. So any suggestions on what to do because I'm willing to overclock both
  3. This is a sort of brand new build of mine so I'm not willing to upgrade yet but I was thinking about buying another 7850
  4. what resolution are you playing at? the i5 and the 7850 should be able to play most games just fine @ 1920 x 1080
  5. Yeah that is the exact resolution but with games like crysis 1 I'm not getting very good performance on very high 0xAA only like 30-40 fps
  6. u sure ? , my Core 2 Duo E8400 and HD 6850 able to gv the same fps as urs ...
    wat version of driver u using ?

    remember your 7850 is a mid-range graphics card

    Erm..
    I think he said is Crysis 1 not crysis 3 , so crysis 1 , it should be able to have at least 50-60fps.
  9. there no possible way both can hold each other back as both are capable of running games at 1080p. btw have you checked your ram? ram capacity? what is your psu supply? is your psu supplying enough electricity to the gpu or is the gpu being throttled down?
