post #1 of 21
Thread Starter 
Hello ive installed my new 6870 though i was coming from 9800 GTx but here is where the problem starts. i formated and reinstalled windows and all ok but i got low fps in games on crysis warhead i get 30-40 fps on gamer. when i check the Msi afterburner gpu usage i get ove 80 and 50 % usage when i was using 9800 it was all time 90-100% load. The only game i saw 99% is metro 2033.i get issues and on Gta 4 too can u help me ? is there any possibility i get bottlenecked my cpu cant go higher than 3 ghz or its the PSU ? :/

What driver are you using?

Also, when you are gaming, is your CPU 100% loaded?

Well.. Crysis likes nvidia cards more and GTA IV is very CPU bound game.

Maybe overclock your CPU and see if things improve?

Your cpu bottlenecked, Why can't you overclock higher than 3ghz?

Edit: You'll need atleast 3.6ghz for your gpu to shine.

Are you playing pirated versions of those games? Then get the full version and patch the games, I think...
