I`m using an XFX 7950 3GB at stock settings with 16GB DDR3 1600 RAM, 1TB 7200RPM HDD, i3 2100 3.1ghz stock, and I`m running bf3, low settings, I forgot resolution but slightly under 1080p, and I have anti-alaising and all of those things off, in BF3 I`m getting a crazy 25ish fps, remember this is on low settings!

Any ideas as of wtf?

Btw: Drivers are up to date.

what cpu do you have. it doesnt matter what gpu you have if you have a low end cpu.

ahhh my oversight gets me again.

So have you tried turning the settings higher then low? as you lower the settings the more work the cpu has to do and you have a lower end cpu for bf3. bf3 lovers 4+ core cpus.

try going back to the 12.8 drivers and see how that works out for you. the new drivers are drastically different and are pushing cards a lot harder. perhaps something just isnt working out for you.

try 12.8 and see how that works out.

got a lot of demand running off that 2 barrel carburetor. why you would buy a huge GPU for the sake of a cheap CPU is beyond me..... although I can run flawlessly on a 775 quad core and a lesser card.........

did you try updating Origin ? and what do you have for an internet connection speed ? and are there any programs running in the background while you are trying to game ?

I just bought a new Sapphire HD7950. I first used driver sweeper then I used Driver fusion after that to get rid of all my old cataylst drivers from my old HD5850. Do that in safe mode. Then installed the 12.11 drivers. I get around 70 or so FPS in BF3. I o/c'd as well. Hope that helps.

telling people to use drive sweeper instead of telling them to use add/remove programs can cause a lot of problems for people who aren't aware that they can delete ati(amd) drivers they're not supposed to. no need for drive sweeper 99-44/100% of the time.

Well, I just based it off my personal experience. I just deleted all the AMD display drivers. And it worked for me.

it is.... if it is hitting 100 then thats it, it cant do the math any faster...

edit thou it could also be overheating and throttling down, hows the temps on the cpu?

Haha can't wait :D  if I get just $480 I can afford a 10k instead of 7200 RPM HDD, a nice 23' screen, and this i5 if my old pc parts sell! :D

Uh, what happened to fan that came with the i3? BTW, I'll have my eggs sunny side up since you already have a hot plate ready to go.

This has to be a bad troll attempt.

In fact it is as the chip would auto shutdown due to heat.
