Please Help, Playing 8 year old Game at 1440p and drops frames.

post #1 of 19
Thread Starter 
Please help me guys. I am playing a very old game. Burnout Paradise is a old 8 year old racing video game. I have a very powerful and capable computer to run a 8 year old game. I have a MSI R9 280X Twin Frozr 3GB. This card is a beast at running an 8 year old game. When I played Burn out Paradise at 1440p the game was dropping frames below 60fps but was getting above 30fps. This is a weird issue because the GTX 960 has similar performance to the R9 280X, In this video this person has a GTX 960 and is playing Burnout Paradise at 1440p 60fps no problem. Has the exact same settings as me, all max settings. So I assume this is a driver issue with the R9 280X. What drivers do I need to download so Burnout Paradise will play better? Also the audio is messed up too. Burnout Paradise is the only game that is giving me audio problems. I hear a buzzing noise from my monitor speakers whenever I play Burnout Paradise. I know there is nothing wrong with the monitor speakers. My monitor is the Acer H257HU. Here is the video of a person playing Burnout Paradise at 1440p with a GTX 960.

What is your CPU? Also check if you have V-Sync ON.
