Wtf? My graphics card is flipping tits!

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.
  4. Gonna try raising settings
  5. Same thing, I know the i3 bottlenecks it a bit on 64 man but I was just on 16 man and same thing!
  6. 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.
  7. How about 12.11? I`ll try 12.8 though
  8. Can't find 12.8 anywhere so i`m trying beta 12.11
  9. did you uninstall catalyst before installing 12.8? you cant go backwards with driver versions
  10. 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 ?
  11. 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.
  12. 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.
  14. I used driver sweeper, got righ iof 12.11, installing 12.8 now
  15. Went to 12.8 and still ***
  16. what kind of load are you getting on the cpu when playing?
  17. 70-100, I know its bottlenecked but no way its that much

    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?
  19. Lol its naked atm :P I was planning on getting an i5 2500k though, and it comes with a fan (thank the lord)
  20. right...
  21. 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
  22. are you seriously running the cpu without a heatsink&fan??
  23. that... cant... be... the... case...

    that would be, you know, insane

    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.
  25. the thermals would make it shut down in seconds. this thread has turned to BS.
  26. ? Its only at like 130C
  27. the admin needs to close this thread.

    so you could fry a steak with that... should be at like 50C

    I'm actually suprised it hasn't gone up in smoke yet
  29. ignore IT".
  30. Lol guys calm your tits, my old PC is being sold on monday, and right now for $410, which I plan to buy: CPU, Screen, HDD with. If I get 480 from it on ebay I can get somre really smexy parts
  31. you should throw that cpu in the trash, selling heavily abused chips is just wrong...
  32. Not heavily abused, its got no fan for what.. 3 days? Maybe 5? Thats not heavy abuse, heavy abuse is 24/7 heavy load no fan. Fer dayz
  33. This has to be a bad troll attempt.

    In fact it is as the chip would auto shutdown due to heat.
  34. ya this thread has really gone to stupid
