HD 7770 low FPS (unplayable)

So, I upgraded from a HD 4650 four days ago to a Asus HD 7770, when I played Assassins Creed two days ago, the FPS was about 30 in Boston, but now, the FPS dropped insanely, and the game is unplayable, I set all setting to normal...

  1. Did you re-install the drivers?
  2. Well, when I installed the card, I installed the drivers that came from the CD (it was the latest driver from ASUS) and I downloaded the latest version of CCC.
  3. Tell your whole systen specs.
  4. Amd Athlon II X3 425 2.7GHz
    8GB ddr3 memory (I think its around 600mhz)
    Asus HD 7770 ghz version OC
    MOBO: H-RS880-uATX 785G AM3
  5. what is the power supply and did you plug power into the card?
  6. CX500 and yes I pluged the 6 pin PCI-E in the card...
    It's so awkward, I run skyrim with ultra settings with 25 fps, the benchmark for the HD7770 sould be average 40
  7. you can't go by benchmarks. they are automated run throughs and only the numbers are written down without account for playability. also, check out the specs of the machines running those benchmarks........... lot better than yours correct?

    your processor is also lacking sorry to say. you're goint to have to live with what you have. make adjustments to game settings.
  8. I would start by uninstalling/reinstalling drivers. Someone on a newegg review suggested installing drivers before installing the card. See:

    Then I would check msconfig [start, run, type "msconfig" (w/out quotes)] and uncheck all NON-ESSENTIAL startup items. These items run in the background and may be using up cpu resources.

    Also, I would download and install malwarebytes (you can get it from download.com). I would run a quick scan and removing any malware found. Then I would run a full scan, just to make sure.

    Also, make sure your anti-virus is up-to-date and check for viruses. (by the way, I use Avast).
  9. It never hurts to ensure the system is dust free, just in case as dust makes things hot. Hot things don't perform as well some times.

    Also, if you can overclock it may help.

    You can use hwmon to get some temps to see how all that is.

    Not likely. As others have suggested, try uninstalling the drivers, and reinstalling the latest from AMD.

    you could also try the latest Catalyst 12.11 Beta 11 http://www2.ati.com/drivers/beta/AMD_Catalyst_12.11_Beta11_NET4.exe

    and the newest CAP as well.

  12. you're not running xp are you?
  13. Thank you everyone,
    I'm running win 7 x64 ultimate
