Hi everyone. I'm here because I recently purchased a 670, and it's not really living up to the pricetag. I suspect it's my motherboard's fault. My motherboard is pretty old. Anyway, here are my specs:
ASUS P8P67 (REV 3.0) LGA 1155 Intel P67 SATA 6Gb/s USB 3.0 ATX Intel Motherboard with UEFI BIOS (I would link to it but it's discontinued. Was $150 or so.) i5-2500k @ 4.7, 1.36 vcore 670, OC doesn't really make any difference in framerate 2x4GB RAM @ 1600 1TB hard drive, crashes infrequently on certain folders or something but I don't think that's the issue really. I haven't really got around to fixing that, I'll probably just reformat the boot partition. but I don't think it's the issue anyway.
To give some perspective, I still get 30 fps in Sleeping Dogs during the day, and dips down to 15 in ME3 and 30 in AC:Revelations when it has to load big areas.

Does it have a 2.0x16 slot? If so, it should be fine. There might be a problem with the gpu.
