|Hello, it's my first time here, and I've been dealing with this possible issue with my GPU. I say "possible" because this may or may not just be me overestimating the capabilities of the card, but let me first address the issue here. About a year ago, I purchased a Sapphire HD Radeon 5770 for my PC. Now, this was an upgrade from an 8800 GTX, so I was expecting at lease some decent frame rate improvements in games. However, I've only noticed my computer's performance is only marginally better than it was prior to my upgrade. I'm talking about 5-10 FPS increase. What puzzles me is that I know someone who has a 5750 who doesn't seem to be encountering any of these issues at all. He's even getting about 20-30 frames better than I am on this card. |
I've tried absolutely everything that I could think of, and I've worked part time IT a few summers ago, but this problem just escapes me. Is this the fact that the 5770 is just an entry-level card, or what?
Thanks in advance, even if there is nothing to help me with.
