Dissapointing Performance AMD ATI build

post #1 of 13
Thread Starter 
Hey guys my Computer is disappointing me in performance and i am wondering if anyone will know what could be causing the problem?
When im playing games im not getting a high FPS & Long load times.
Its not that bad in all games. but its not getting the performance it should be.

Computer Specs are

AMD phenom x4 975
ATI 6970
8Gb ram 4gb at 1800mhz & 4gb at 1333mhz
(I know the ram scales down to 1333mhz could this cause a
significant dipp in performance?)

What PSU do you have? I dont know why people always leave this out in system specs when it is the most important piece.

Kind of a weak mobo to be running those components. I know its probably not the root of the problem but still. Also, what ram are you running? It looks like you have two different kits there for some reason.

what's your OS?.. and i think if you wanted a good gaming system, you should have invested in a SSD, if those drives are Green Caviars By Western Digital, then that would explain the long load times. Also Close unwanted processes before gaming. Defrag Your drives..

Not at home now so i cant post 3d mark scores,
Also Dont know the brand of psu its a 1000w gaming edition

i have done everything that would usually be done,
defrag, kill process, run on single monitor, upgrade drivers also went back to older drivers

the computer is a slow upgrade over time, the hdds are poor ones & will give bad load times
but that doesnt explain my crappy video performance,
i was worried about the mobo is it is the next to be upgraded,
the ram is two kits. the 1333 is one i picked up for free

should i get a new mainboard
or ssd
or two hdd in raid 0
or upgrade my ram to 8gb 1800mhz?

on another note will the ram running at 1333mhz 8gb be better than the 4gb at 1800mhz?

I see the weak mobo, 1333mhz ramkit, and hdd to be the issue.
