My gtx 670 msi power edition... so good right? well its not with my computer

CPU
FX-8120(4.7Ghz)

I get shitty fps and weird choppiness in crysis 2, cant play bf3 maxed at only 30-60(which i heard i should get 50+ at stock and im overclocking the factory overclocked card...) and is over all just a huge dissapointment

Please if you have any idea, I cant return the card(get money back) I can still rma it so if its defective i can always do that.

At first i though it was my cpu but then i overclocked it and i still get terrible fps(for 400$) Please any info and suggestion on how to fix this are welcome I really want to fix this, I'm stumped and am "this" close to just getting a year of xbox live and playing on that again because my computer is worth about 4 times as much as one xbox and I get terrible fps(again for the 400$ upgrade on the gpu)

Please, reply I dont care if you have no idea any suggestion is welcome

  1. the only thing i could think of would be a cpu bottleneck, that or its defective graphics card, i would rma the card first and if the new one sucks also its probly your cpu, but you overclocked that so much i dont know why it would be
  2. Did you install motherboard drivers when you built the system? Did you remove old graphics drivers when you put the new one in? Are your drivers up to date? What resolution are you trying BF3 at? Saying you "heard" you should get 50+fps, heard from who? Was it single player they benchmarked at? Was it multiplayer with only 2 people? What map? Most benchmark sites show say 72.9fps, but that's the MAX they got, not the min, not the average. Here's a graph that shows a better idea of what goes on with FPS. Something like a big explosion blowing up will kill FPS quickly, but only for a few seconds.

  3. well yeah i get that kind of fps... but that is at twice my resolution

    my res is 1920x1080

    i did update my driers

    i did uninstall completely my old drivers and reinstall them

    and i got the benchmark from a person on tomshardware where they got like 50+ in a 64player gold of oman and i get 30+
  4. oh man well thats strange i just messed with my overclock for a little bit and when i got sick of the crashing i just went back to my old one... it crashes :/ so i think my gpu is screwed up what do you think?
  5. Sounds like an unstable overclock / too much heat production.

    You've tried running EVERYTHING at stock clocks and voltages, right?
  6. yeah... it does not crash at stock
  7. Well... that would seem kinda indicative of the problem then, wouldn't it?
  8. also how do i install my backup graphics card? do i have to uninstall the nvidia drivers? it is the hd 4650
  9. yeah... but im not sure, oh well ill get it rma'd... just hope it is the problem i hate rmang things
  10. Yeah, RMAs are a pain.

    But... why are you doing that? The game runs like it's supposed to without crashing when you tone down your overclocks, right?

    also yes it would... but the overclock i just did worked for me for about a month no problems and i got about 10fps better but then it just stops working :/ thats strange

    No, i get low fps, it does not crash but i get like 20-30 lower fps than it is said the gtx 670 gets and that i see in videos
  13. Dust. Have you cleaned out your case recently?

    Also could be drivers, or the AMD CPU (though I shouldn't think so.)
  14. well its already out soooooooo... and no its been in there for less than a month and a half barely any dust on it, also i overvolted it does that mean they wont except it?
