Also, what setting is your mesh quality?

Im using the ultra preset and I play at 1600p, I drop to the 30s. I wish I could OC more but my mobo doesn't allow voltage control.

Are you using good GPU drivers? NCP set to max performance? What resolution? Are you running any AA?

My guess would be you are running too high of AA.

I am using the latest beta NVidia driver. IDK what ncp is. 1600p. and I've tryied it at 2xaa and 4xaa. both times I drop to the 30s.

try running low settings. It sounds like you are hitting a VRAM wall. Ultra settings with 2gb of VRAM at 1600p is not a good thing lol.

NCP is nvidia control panel

I don't think so, I only have low fps during 64 player maps and when poop hits the fan.

Other games run fine. Its just farcry 3 (which I think is a driver bug) and bf3 64 player.

when i read bf3 , the only thing that came to my mind was, how optimized the game is
and farcry goes same way with a single gpu sometimes i get low usage and low fps for some unknown reason

it doesn't matter which cpu 2500k or 4770/3930 (my experience) only thing that changes is the cpuusage is lower
i will say stay with that chip and overclock to 4.5 or more smile.gif

Ultra mesh quality at 1600p requires a massive amount of cpu power. Try using high or medium and see if that helps. What is you AA setting?
