The reason I ask is because I recently used the 7870 to replace my old 6850 and I'm seeing completely negligible performance increases. Should I consider upgrading my CPU or did I just grossly overestimate the percentage performance and fps increase from my previous card? Thanks, and feel free to make any suggestions.
Also, after I replaced my GPU and started my computer up, I received an error message indicating that my CPU temperature was too high. I turned it off went away, came back later and restarted without the error - haven't seen it since. Is this something to be concerned about? If so what could I do to fix the problem?
Seems to have worked. I think my stock heat sink must have been faulty rather than just sub-par as my load temps decreased by 50 degrees, idle by 20. Getting decent fps (40+) on Arma II now. Thanks for the help guys.
