2) When I manually select "Ultra", the FPS is not very good and the game is somewhat choppy (e.g. frame rates of around 37 at the beginning of the main Campaign). That's a far cry from this benchmark.
Can someone please explain these 2 points above and how I can improve it? I obviously didn't spend a ton of money on this card to play on "Medium" settings. In fact, I spent a ton of money on it precisely so I could play on Ultra settings without any problem, but it's too choppy to enjoy. My drivers are the latest stable ones.
Thanks for your help, I appreciate it.

Umm use AB and do the overlay and look at the clocks and gpu usage.

Specifically in Heaven just now, it didn't seem like it was doing anything to have injection running, if I turned off msaa in the program.

 

 

No need. All you have to do in CCC is set it to Application Settings or Overwrite Application Settings.

I haven't had the sleep issue ever since I put a screen saver on instead of energy saver. I would get them ALL the time, even trying to wipe windows I'd still get them. At first I thought it was related to my SSD but I had EVERYTHING turned off regarding sleep/hibernation. The only thing I noticed was the monitors were set to sleep, once I disabled that I never had the issue again. I guess when you sleep your monitors the card gets bored and goes to sleep too.

MSAA will be your biggest gain. Turn off AA/Blur and you will see a nice increase. You can cycle through the settings and see what difference they make which is not much really. I run CFX and I don't run everything at ultra because there is not much difference at all. Like shadows, run them at high. There are quite a few settings that you can run at high and get a extra few FPS without losing any quality. Who ever told you one 7950 could run it maxed... lol.

dwnload MSI Afterburner then go to settings after installation is complete. Then click on settings to the lower right and then click on monitoring tab at the top. You will then see a list of things.
GPU TEMPATURE, GPU CLOCK, MEMORY CLOCK etc. Now look below that list and you should see an option that says SHOW IN ON-SCREEN DISPLAY. In on screen display and you have to click on the items in the list then make sure you check the SHOW IN ON-SCREEN DISPLAY. If they are selected to be displayed on screen you will see OSD beside each in the list.

Thats not good news I just sent back my new 580 to get a 7950, my 580 could max bf3 even online with everything at full except msaa turned off and get 60 constantly. Sigh this is the problem with amd they make amazing cards outright but there never optimized for games and terrible drivers, while nividas cards are not as powerfull but game better. I may aswell go all out and get a 7970/680 now
