Hey guys, i was wondering if someone who knows what their doing can help me, i just got a new graphics card, upgrading from integrated, and i dont see a big boost in fps in the games i play. i mostly play WoW and Counter strike source, and im getting the same fps playing with low resolutions. The card i got is the XFX 4770.

My specs are as follows, Asus M3A78-CM mobo, 7750BE @ 3.1, 4g ocz platinum 800 @ 5-5-5-15, xfx 4770 stock clocks, catalyst 9.8 drivers. Actually when playing at 1024x768 ad ultra settings in wow, i get 30-80 fps, which is a lttle better. i think the integrated was called rv610 = to a 2400 or something. css i get like 60-150 fps, @ 1024 768 on high settings but it feels crappy, especially when my fps dips low. I dont know i was expecting alot more out of this 4770, from all the reviews on the web

The onboard graphics (ATI 3100 series) are disabled in the bios right? That would slow it down some if it weren't.

 

Your motherboard I assume

What kind of motherboard would you suggest, and is it possible my old PS is causing the bottleneck? its an old 300w probably 5-6 years old. I hear 4770 scale really well in crossfire,so i would want a mobo with crossfire :) thanks for the help

For power supply units, I would recommend either PC power & cooling, or Corsair.

 

Both are very good quality PSU's

 

PSU's don't have the ability to create bottlenecks, but cheap one can cause mild to extreme problems.

CSS is a very CPU limited game and @ 1024x768 it's not unreasonable to assume that if you haven't at least upped the detail settings in the game you're not going to get a better experience. From what I've been TOLD WoW is also largely CPU limited, but again upp the resolution or at least the detail settings and it should look better.

 

EDIT: Just ran the CSS in game video test on my main rig, 224 vs 240 fps between max detail @ 1920x1200 and minumum detail @ 1024x768 and I KNOW I've run the game maxed out @ 1680x1050 on a 3000+ and a 7800GT so the 4770 should have no problems getting it done. So if the game doesn't look similar to this you need to up the detail:

WoW is affected more by cpu/memory speed the GPU. Also where in WoW are you trying to measure Fps? I hope not in Daleran, as no one gets very good fps there no matter what the set up. Check dungeons and raid zones (not WG). I play with all settings maxed 1920x1200(4x) and never see any choppyness, though I have seen the fps in dal drop in the 40's...
