I've just bought a Club3D 3870x2 and i can't get it to perform like i've seen other ppl get it to(3dmark and on forums).

I uninstalled the old geforce 7300gs software, booted up in safemode and cleaned up with Driver Sweeper from guru3d.
Then i installed the 3870X2 with the newest drivers from ati(3.3).


In 3dmark '06 i get about 5500s point and the same in the '05 edition.

All games stutter badly in different situations, and performs badly overall, even when lowering the graphics details and resolution.
A game like Hellgate:London can't even get higher than ~20FPS. I had higher FPS with my old gfxcard(the 7300gs!!).

UT3 runs like crap too, most other games too..


I've also tried the Cat 8.3 hotfix driver, but it doesn't seem to make any difference...


Somebody's got a suggestion?

I've tried CPU-Z here's what i got:



As you can see, both drivers are for XP, and the first one is even a generic XP driver...

I can't get it to install the actual Vista driver in any way it seems... Donno what to do..


Another thing is that after i installed the card, one logical CPU runs at 60-90% all the time, without anything actually using it, from looking at the Taskman:

The top 'process' is the 'idle thing':


Here you can see that at the same time that it uses alot of CPU:

Ok i ended up reinstalling Vista, and the problem is gone.

Though if anyone would know the reason for this, i'd be happy to hear it :)
