The thing that bugs me is that MSI Afterburner shows that the game runs nearly 90% on both cards. What I don't understand is how I am not able to maintain 60FPS in a three year old game with outdated graphics.

Yikes, if Fallout 3 is maxing out a pair of 5870s, there might be something else going on you need to take a look at.

Well thanks for all the help everyone. I guess I can live with the crappy performance.

Check you CCC and see if you are trying to run an Exotic AA filter like Wide-Tent or Edge-Detect.

Also check your AA method and make sure it is set to Multi-sample. Fallout uses its own built in Transparency AA so you need to make sure you are not running Adaptive or Supersampling.

Odd. I just loaded up New Vegas and according to Afterburner, my second gpu is loading at 0%. How do I know I have Crossfire enabled? GPUZ.

All the settings are on default in CCC. I never touch anything in the control panel. I would also like to mention that I have the latest Crossfire Application Profiles installed. The game runs crappy regardless of whether I have an older version of the Crossfire profiles installed. I also downgraded back to 10.10e last night and the performance is unchanged. I really want to stick to 10.12 because I get better performance in the rest of my games than compared to 10.10e.

QFT; I run it with pretty much the exact same setup, and have no problems with the game.

+10. I now have the GOTY copy with steam (havent played). I first bought the lunchbox edition with fo3 (no add ons) and it would crash. I ended up gettig a torrented copy and it doesnt crash. I have no clue if its modified.
