Sure I sike high into the 90-120 fps range however in all of regular playing I am steady around 45-50 fps witch I feel is really low for this card. I have 12.11beta the app extention pack, and I have tried every fix I can think of. Call me crazy but I want to play WoW on ultra and my card isn't cutting it.

The problem is your processor. I used the 8120 @ 4ghz on my new build and I play WoW a lot, fps were about the same as yours when I had a 7870. I switched that out for a 680 & fps did not change. Swapped the 8120 for a 3570K and my fps more than doubled. Now with everything ultra including shadows, 8x AA 16x AF at 1080P I never drop below 70 usually around 120fps. WoW doesn't work well on 8 core and the 8120 blows on lower threaded apps. Good luck to ya, I bit the bullet to replace & learned from my mistake.

what is your fps for gw2 out of curiousity
post #17654 of 38704
Thanks for the feed back. Ill get in GW2 right now and do a few benches and get back to you with that. My wife has an i5 3570k in her comp so i will switch that out and see if that makes a difference in my fps. Also i have the most up to date drivers so i am not convinced that is my problem.

You have the gtx680 and a 3570k? have you tried it with your 7870? Are your fps issues completely contained in the CPU? or does the GTX card help as well? Sorry for the seemingly redundant questions but I am getting ready to dump cash on a new GPU OR 3570k and i just wanna make sure what i get into is going to be the fix.

Thanks

Is there anything else that can overclock these cards beyond their limits, other than MSI AB?

I've heard a few 7970 users say that Trixx has given them a higher stable overclock compared to using MSI AB. I also tested this and found it to be true.

Yeah, Trixx is way better for 79XX cards except for the Lightning. AB gives extra voltage to Lightning (and maybe PE) cards...
