Is your SSD plugged into a non-intel SATA 3 connection? I had issues when i plugged it into the Marvell controller - see my thread here http://forums.sandisk.com/t5/SanDisk-Extreme-SSD/Sandisk-Extreme-240GB-Benching-slow-Win-7-Asus-P8Z68-V-Pro/m-p/278556#M389

I feel bad for your frustration tongue.gif

just checked again, my SSD was on the SATA 3 connection. I just changed everything around now so all my storage devices (SSD and two HDD's) are connected to the SATA 3 port.... Still getting the stutter :/ Also, this is only happening Windowed mode/Fullscreen windowed On Fullscreen, it doesnt... I don't know why, if its on windowed i understand it still has the desktop loaded on the background, but im sure its not my GPU not being able to handle it, my 6970 had no problems at all... But when i got this 7970 i started having the problems. I don't know why, if it plays fine Fullscreen, it should on windowed :/ Really frustrating!!!!!

Yeah, i found one on the website which i posted a few days ago on this thread. I backed up my original one (The one thats on now) incase it screws up... What do you know!! After updating the bios with the ATIwinflash program, i couldnt boot into windows, my mobo just beeped 3 times... So i just switched to the second switch (Default) and reinstalled my backup of the original, so i ended up back to square one. A few days later my friend found me one, but i think it must have been the same version as the problem is still occurring, but at least that time it did not make my computer unbootable...



Going to try my monitor + my secondary 21.5" monitor together. then every other combination.

Okay this is weird. So, my 7970 does not like multiple monitors connected. I tried a combination of all of them but what i had noticed is that i tried everything on a single monitor. So my Primary, secondary and my TV by itself and i played Serious Sam 3 BFE which pretty much stutters all the time windowed mode, except this time, i tried it on the individual monitors and BAM!! Stutter is gone! I mean, this kinda solves my problem, but at the same time it doesn't. I kinda like well, pretty much, i cant really use my computer without my second monitor and i can't really play games without stutter. I can't have both :/
I really don't know what the problem is, but if someone knows whats going on? I would appreciate you telling me biggrin.gif

I'd look at whatever power management settings you have in the graphics driver options and try changing those. I could imagine the driver getting confused, thinking it should go into 2D power saving mode when doing desktop stuff on the second screen, even though there's the game still running on your main screen.

What about your motherboard and CPU? Do those have integrated graphics? You could use that for at least a second monitor. Your graphics card would just get the monitor you play games on. Whatever the integrated graphics can do should be enough for watching videos and using normal desktop stuff like a web browser.

If you want to try integrated graphics, you have to manually enable it in the motherboard BIOS. The default "auto" setting usually turns it off if there's a graphics card installed.

Well on the CCC i adjusted the power control to 20% if thats what you're talking about.

Also i have plugged in my second monitor to my MOBO but i think it automatically disables the intel HD4000, do you know exactly what setting it is on the bios?

powerplay settings. Not power control.

Found a random screenshot with Google... It looks a bit like what I see in my BIOS. I circled the option that you'd have to change on my board:



This is how it should look in Windows in the device manager if it's working:

Well, i looked around on my Bios, but i went to device manager and it already shows both AMD Radeon HD 7900 Series and under it has the Intel(R) HD Graphics 4000

Also i found this in my BIOS though... Don't know what it is really, but its something to do with Virtu and says it should always be enabled :/
