Or someones used beat up 2500K on the cheap.. even at stock speeds it will help out greatly vs a 2100

Do you mean the BIOS on the motherboard? That could probably use an update, since it's been like a year since I did that:p
But thanks for the tip smile.gif

Yeah, I've been thinking about that, but since I live in sweden, it's just stupidly hard to get your hands on used computer parts tongue.gif

That's a possibility, I've been experiencing some major issues with drivers before, so that might be it.
Starting to regret buying a 7950 now, it's been nothing but trouble mad.gif

Try turning off all the special effects of the game
and run it on default on 1080 and see how the FPS is.

the 7950 is good but depends if it's OC'd or not
it might be having heat issues as well, thus why I stopped buying XFX series for my mrs. cramped case.

having a low end cpu with a near high end gpu is questions beyond me though wth.gif

I did, as I said in my original post, I turned everything down to the bare minimum, and the FPS didn't change at all.
Also, the i3 isn't what I would call a low-end CPU, more like midrange, since it handles most games just fine tongue.gif

Yes my motherboard would not even boot with my 7950 plugged in until I updated the motherboard BIOS, honestly I am glad I did too since there had been a number of updates since and my system seems quicker now.

It's hard to find out bottlenecks but still though use HWiNFO32/64 and see your thread usage and overall CPU usage, if your CPU is at 98-99 on average and your GPU is not it means you need more powerful CPU to keep up with a HD 7950.

I normally use OSD to monitor my GPU usage, if my fps are stable and GPU is being utilized properly I don't worry about bottlenecks

A True Quad Core Will definately change the game experience! But Try this and post back if u have Satisfied Results
My Suggestion is to Set On Gaming tab on Catalyst Control Center the follow:
Overide application settings ( to all of available options)
and set The "Standard" Value To "Performance"
Also u can play with custon antializing if u want
That Increased FPS for me In Crysis 3 for about +10-12fps:)

So when you do this does it turn down the applications more demanding settings like AA so you gain performance?
