Specs: Windows 7
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.

✔ Best Answer
For your driver you only should go to the Radeon web site and search for your driver by the model number of the graphics chip.
Look to cleaning out your machine from malware and reduce or eliminate programs running in the background. Start with Malwarebytes. Then look in Task Manager > Processes tab and see what is using CPU and look into reducing that background load on your system. Uninstall where reasonably possible, Set the programs via their settings to not start with Windows so they are only open when you launch them and not all of the time.

You have to be a little bit crazy to keep you from going insane.
