HEy all i currently have a 3870 x2 but it feels to me like its not doing as well as it should.

I did have a 8800 gts 320mb and i have noticed a boost, but no way near as i expected.

Could the rest of my system be bottlenecking it?

Or could my pcie 1.0 slot be hampering its performance?

This is a benchmark i found

http://www.tomshardware.com/reviews/...2,1764-15.html

Im playing cod 4 on 1280 x 1024 and eveyrthing is maxed other than aa and af.

Despite what that benchmark says im not pulling off totally smooth play :/

Fallout 3 is another example, i have had it maxed out and it runs perfectly...when im walking in a straight line, but as soon as look around it seems very choppy.

As i said before is something bottlencking it (i think thats the right term) or am i not setting ccc properly as i dont understand the options in there?




This is a benchmark of the card down from my current one in respect to my old 8800 gts

http://www.hwcompare.com/4846/geforc...3870-x2-512mb/

and this suggest quite a large increase in performance,

This is my card and the one down http://www.hwcompare.com/4770/radeon-hd-3870-x2-1gb-vs-radeon-hd-3870-x2-512mb/ and this suggests to me mine should have an even bigger increase, however i am not seeing it.

How should i set up ccc, or is it somehting else stopping me achieving decent fps?

For starters, please disable Windows Defender, because you have Avast on.


Make sure that your computer is updated like the chipsets for your motherboard and stuff.

You go to services via administrative tools in control panel and service. I would also recommend upgrading to SP2 for Windows Vista.

Ok thanks, theoretically after looking at my specs, should i be able to max out mw2 at 1280x1024, in your opinion of course?

Its really annoying me at the moment, i mean i had fallout 3 on my hd tv a few days ago and had it maxed on 1650x1200 and it performs the exact same as on my monitor at 1280x1024.

Could it even be the monitor, as i have had no end of problems with it? For example, the only way to get an output from my comp is by waiting until windows is up and on the home screen and then connecting the vga cable. This isnt the case with my tv and is only a problem on the monitor? Any thoughts on that would be great.
