Crossfire Perfomance Issues, Help

post #1 of 100
Thread Starter 
Problem:

Crossfire 5770 cards won't perform.

I assume bottle neck or not enough power to the cards.

Can anyone advise how I could improve the cards performance?

I am asking anyone why my computer lags with 2 of these cards set up and if I can disable anything that's doesn't really matter that effects the performance of the cards.



Someone help me,
Signed..
Really needs help and will go crazy because I spent too much on this computer, and hate it.

hmmm did you buy a $1000 dollar monitor and are attempting to run stuff at crazy resolutions? i don't see how two 5770's and a phenom II x6 (got that from another one of your posts) could come out to 2 grand.

Yes it can. You will get less FPS if you're playing at 2560 x 1440 than if you're playing at 1920 x 1080. Larger resolutions require more GPU power.

Edit: Did you buy your pc prebuilt or from ibuypower or something? I'm not seeing 2000 worth of parts.

are you trying to play games? what resolution are you playing at and at what settings? the higher the resolution, the more the cards are taxed performance wise.

I too am curious as to where you are located (country) and what your specs are.

$450 for 5770s? Never knew them to be that expensive!

"Today we'll be looking into Juniper GPU based products, e.g. the Radeon HD 5770.

The Radeon HD 5770 is set to go on sale for just $159, while the cheapest entry in the 5700 series, the Radeon HD 5750 is priced in the $109 to 129 USD bracket."

yup, they were never that expensive.

Where are you located?



Wait a second...... USA????????????????????

Did you buy a prebuilt?
