I'm seriously not happy with my investment. I had a GTX 550TI and an i5 2400, I upgraded the 550ti to an AMD 7950 and here is basically have the same FPS.
Far Cry 3
GTX 550ti: 32-34FPS max
AMD 7850: Around 70FPS
Basically a 40FPS boost for $300, is that normal or am I expecting too much?
GTX 550TI: 50FPS when looking out from Dragonsreach
AMD 7950: Pretty much same FPS
Is Skyrim more CPU intensive?
Black Ops 2
GTX 550ti: Around 125FPS mostly, lowest FPS probably 60-80
AMD 7850: Around 180FPS, lowest probably 120 or 100FPS.
I'm not really sure how many FPS I get in BO2 since I can't pay attention that much but shouldn't I be getting more FPS? Should I return my card and get an i7? Is my i5 2400 bottlenecking the 7950? Is my PSU not giving enough power, I have an OC modXstream 600w PSU
