XFX ATI HD 6950 questions
PC setup :
XFX HD 6950
i7-860 @ 3.36Ghz Temps 35C idle around 45 load
1TB HDD 7200rpm
900W rocketfish gaming power supply
EVGA P55 classified 200
8GB of DDR3 Ram

Okay I had a XFX HD 5770 1GB and i need something with more power so i got the XFX HD 6950 to be precise here's the link from where got it from http://www.newegg.com/Product/Produc...82E16814150530 .to tell you the truth I was quite disappointed. I was expecting something a little more. So my questions are is this XFX HD 6950 different from any other HD 6950, i think maybe thats why its not so powerful,? Did I got a good upgrade from the XFX HD 5770 to the XFX HD 6950? would overclocking void my warranty? How to overclock it?and what are the safe temperatures for this graphic card? thank you for your time

Hey there, It seems as though you have a bottleneck somewhere else if that isn't making any difference. When running a game leave task manager open in the background and go on the performance tab. This will show you how much CPU you are using in a percentage.

Kinda hard to see any bottleneck with that system, what kind of issues are you experiencing?
BTW, Rocketfish PSU's are junk.

I just test it out right now.I played black ops maxed out and the CPU usage was 79% when loading but only for a second and around 16% ingame. I bought the HD 6950 because i seen videos online of people maxing out crysis and getting good fps ,but when i max out i only get 20 fps or lower.

What resolution are you playing at? In Crysis, the 6950 will average about 30 FPS with a 1920x1200 resolution, and 20 FPS with a 2560x1600. 4xAA.

You should definitely get more FPS then.

Is Crysis the only game that you get low FPS with?

O and also GTA 4 I can hardly play because the fps are so bad when maxed out and same goes with the new stalker game . But I can play black ops maxed out with 60 FPS or more and I was that I was playing Starcraft 2 maxed out with 84FPS
