ATI 5770 Help...

post #1 of 11
Thread Starter 
System Specs.
(New) Asus P5VD2-VM-SE (Socket 775)
(((((OLD MOBO T5082 Emachines motherboard))))))))
Pentium D805 2.66ghz
Western Digital Sata 320 GB Hard drive
Sapphire ATI Radeon 5770
2 GB Ram
500w PSU

Hey all! First of let me wish you all a Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays.
I just bought a Sapphire ATI 5770 a couple days ago to replace my ATI 4300 series.
I reformatted my system with Windows Vista when I got the card. I also replaced my motherboard ((The Asus supported more ram)) After all updates to windows and installing neccesary drivers for motherboard and GPU I tried running Team fortress 2. Everything was fine but after a few minutes I experienced a drop in FPS that went all the way down to 9. This happens frequently now and 9 seems to be the magic number. It happens even when nothing is going on and their is only 2 people in the server.

I have tried numerous drivers and techniques to try to stop it from happening
Changed driver versions from 8 up to 10. currently using drivers found by device manager with still no fix.
Steam controls dont fix its.. Multi core settings has no effect and and maxfps scripts also has no improvement.
Thinking maybe it was just TF2 I tried Audiosurf and even that lagged out to 9fps.

I thought the pci-e slot on the motherboard may have been the problem so I removed the 5770 and replaced it with the known working 4750 and the dips dissapeared. I ran a steady 30-40 fps
when in heated fire battles its 22 at lowest.

When the 5770 goes down to nine it laggs and then in like 5-10 seconds bounces up to 52-60 fps

It always dips down to 9. I ran in window mode and saw i had no available memory while in game mode and playing.
I dont want to go and buy it and have it not work

What seems to be the problem?
Can anyone suggest what i should do? I have a warranty so taking it back because faulty card could be done. Thanks for helping and again wish everyone Happy holidays.

Hey there

Im guessing that your processor is bottlenecking. The dipping in framerate is a symptom of bottlenecking.

The 4750 isnt bottlenecking because its not as powerful as the hd 5770.

Have u tried other games and experienced the same problem?
Also 2gb of ram is abit low. An upgrade to 4gb could see a big impovement in performance with your setup.

If not try running some other games. Also run a game with task manager open in the performance tab which monitors your cpu and ram usage. This should give us an idea if the cpu or ram in the bottleneck,

Merry christmas to u to smile.gif.

I did the windowed test this morning. It showed that I had 0 memory available. Any game is causing this. I did try the furmark benchmark test. The stress test ran for over 10 minutes but it did not dip.
Audiosurf was causing it to dip.
Pretty sure the highest usage on cpu was 85%
but my ram was constant 1.85gb or higher out of 2.00 gb

The d805 is rated at 3.02 ghz and is a dual core...
Just in case that helps any.

well if u have no available ram thats your porblem. The game dips when theres no more ram available and runs fine when it has breathing room.

I would say that your problem isnt the graphics card its your ram. I suggest getting another 2gb and then you'll see no more dipping in games and a more stable and faster windows.

Well I plan on getting some on boxing day (JOY to sales) If i can push out enough for 4 gigs in two sticks I'll aim for that.
Does ram brand matter? What is the difference between value ram and branded?
Also I have realized unstable windows with the card also it runs just desktop with 1077 mb so I can only imagine what the in game is like.
Would 3gb be sufficient or is it better to just go 4?

If you replaced your graphics card, and nothing else, and saw a noticeable difference in FPS, then it is your graphics card causing the issue.

Also, if you don't have 64bit OS, you should stay below 4gb RAM because your system can't use all of it.

Ok I changed the motherboard from a t5082 to an asus p5vd2-vm-se
Since having the 5770 in my system have switched it out for the 4750.
No dips at all. Thinking of returning it...
Really would appreciate anyone's reccommendation on a good card... Was look at the gt240 gddr5 512mb...

His 4750 isnt dipping because its a low end card in comparison to his hd 5770 so when he uses the 5770 it demands more resources from the ram, psu and cpu. I have a friend who has a similar setup to yours bigbear with the same cpu ram and hd 5770 and he experiences dips so somethings bottlenecking your graphics card. Its like putting crazy wheels on a car with an old slow engine. your not going to get the most out of them wheels.

If you add an extra 1gb ram that should be fine and youll should see an increase and less dips.

For example: Stick a gtx 580 in a computer with a pentium d and 1 gb of ram and youll see no difference in performance when comparing to a 7800gt.

Ok that sucks a big one haha!!
Will it bottleneck out the same as it is now? 9fps dip??
Also trying to push out more fps i get 30-45 with my old card. Would this card be a good pick for an upgrade considering my hardware?

http://www.summitdirect.com/summit/showProductDetail_en.jsp

This will be the store where I will be purchasing the card, by the looks of the site this seems like the correct fit. What kind of improvement can I expect?


HUGE HUGE MISTAKE... It most def isnt a 4750 card i had previously...
Its the 4300 series. Its a 512mb Gddr2
