Hello! I recently bought Far Cry 3 and am trying to run it on Very high settings. There is this awful stutter, and it runs at about 35 fps. There is no anti aliasing and the SSAO is on HBAO. I have tried tweaking some settings a little bit like the post processing and it didnt do much. I also tried turning the GPU buffer to 2 and it did help a little, but i still notice the stutter, just a little. My specs are:

AMD 7970 Saphire 3GB OC

AMD FX 4100 3.6 GHz

16GB of RAM

1920x1080 Resolution

M5A97 ASUS Motherboard

I only complain about the 35 frames because someone claimed of having a minimum of 50 frames on my same specs, but on a 7870.

Last but not least, I have been trying to Overclock my graphics card. I started by doing a gpu clock of 1050 (+100 from the factory clock) and the memory clock to 1500 (+75 from the factory clock and the fans on automatic. But every time i load far cry 3, the game gets to the loading screen, but then crashes and says that the gpu crashed. HELP PLEASE!

Your CPU is very low end for your GPU. Its probably throttling the GPU back. The CPU is holding you back the most.

would it really be holding it back that much? what would you suggest for not bottlenecking? i know it has to be intel, preferably an i5.

i5 3570k, i5 3470, i5 3350P are the best choices. i5 3570k is definitely the best out of them though. Try to overclock your CPU though, especially if you have an aftermarket cooler.

i5-2500k or Core i5 3570K are just about the best processor you can get for the money today. With plenty of performance, top notch overclocking capability and enough horsepower to run any game you throw at it, the choice is a no brainer.

That said try overclocking your cpu first to see if it helps also just a heads up fry cry 3 is very demanding game.You won't be getting no 60 + fps on ultra settings in fry cry 3 no matter what you do just so you know.

You'll need to use your BIOS on your motherboard to overclock. As for how to do it, I'm not much of an expert but usually it's not too hard.

Use your motherboard Bios.

Honestly I would say check your AMD graphics drivers before anything else. Also what power supply do you have? if its too weak it could be the problem. A big give away is that your GPU isn't stable with the overclocks, which is usually a power issue.

thank you so much for the advice on oc from the bios. The bios allowed me to overclock correctly! probabley not to the max of its abililty, but it doesnt matter. i oc'd it .3 ghz and that did it for me. no stutter on very high with directx 11 and the fans are barely on and its staying pretty cool. It turns out on the Asus Bios, there is the "EZ" setting to where there is power saver, normal, and performance mode. i had it on normal and bumped it up to performance and hooray, 3.9ghz.
