IM ONLY GETTING 20 FPS IN 3DMARK 11 AND IN RUNNING MSI 7970

Hi guys I just recently build my first p.c ever with no help just reading up and surfing threw YouTube. My build consist of gigabyte z77,i5 3570k cpu, 120 gb ssd ,2 terabyte hhd, 32gb of ram, and msi Radeon 7970. I went to bench mark it in 3dmark 11 on low it gives me 60 fps on ultra about 20 fps. I'm trying o play farcry 3 and its so laggy. This is the website that started me off in building p.c I hope you guys could really help me thanks. Oh and windows 8 os.

  1. 3dmark11 and Far Cry 3 are VERY demanding. Just one 7970 is insufficient at some settings. Try lowering the some of the settings in Far Cry 3
  2. what resolution is your monitor?

    lol pbm, 7970 would smash farcry 3

    Depends on the resolution

    Should I run two 7970's I payed 500 bucks for the graphics card ill expect it to run far cry lol

    I'm using a 1080p hdtv on my p.c

    but how can I get better fps with this 7970 dude on ultra 18-20 fps is unacceptable for a 3gb graphics card
  7. What fps are you getting in FC3? "Lag" is a very subjective term.

    about 20 fps I have no idea m not bottlenecking, and lag is an understatement lol I think I can run better fps off of intel 4000

    says you should be getting about 37fps. Have you tried OCing the CPU and if so how far? The test system was six cores at 4.25GHz with HT on.
  10. 7970 is plenty for far cry even my 7870 smashes it

    Farcry3 is just really unoptimized.
    It stutters like a nervous hooker on anybody's pc.
  12. In my experience, the hoo... well, nevermind.

    After they see the heat I'm packin'. They get pretty nervous. ;)
  14. got the latest drivers. defragged ur drive. and scan disked it?
  15. Maybe a driver update and turning off the MSAA will improve Far Cry 3 performance.

    Make sure you turn off CPU chewing applications like web browsing for maximum frame-rate.

  18. and check that your clocks arent lowered while benchmarking / testing

    run a 3dmark11 performance test and post ur scores,

    the gpu should be around 7000-8000

  21. download something like gpuz and monitor your clock rates, go to a game / benchmarking software and see if they are in "rest" ( very low )
    or working normally
