Uhm... nForce 750 chipset with Crossfire... They don't have a nice relationship, u know...

See if there's a BIOS update or something for that. Also, u have a Phenom with 2GB. What's your Phenom/RAM speed atm?

Esop!

Catalyst version? OS u're using? RAM timings?

And your Phenom is kinda slow IMO. What cooling solution u have for it? I mean, with a MaxOrb u can get 3.4Ghz with no sweat. Also, play with your RAM FSB and your HT link multi and speed so u can squeeze more from your Phenom BE.

Esop!

What's you HT link speed and multi?

Well, to OC a little more your Phenom, i'd say go to the Overclockers sub forum. There are some guru's with years of exp XD

Cause it's not a video card problem at all, it's the rest of it :p

And try to get Catalyst 8.6 + hot fixes. For what i read, they are working very well so far, and 8.7 and 8.8 are sluggish.

Esop!

EDIT: Spelling :p

Uhm... What do you have on your background running while doing the tests?

Clean Windows install with the card? Where did you upgrade from, an nVidia card? Did you uninstall the older drivers properly?

Esop!

I'd blame the 750i chipset actually, but i really don't know what could be the issue... Seriously...

If u were able to get the 4870X2, can u change your MoBo and get a little more RAM? Get a 790FX chipset (DFI and Asus are my favorite choice) with 2 more Gigs IMO.

Now, if you don't want to, u can keep trying with your current rig. Run Driver Cleaner and see what it says.

Esop!

its 750a chipset not 750i :kaola: i have tryed driver cleaner... IF i buy a new mobo whit 790FX chipset how sure are you that i will get beter performance??
 

Yuka

The 790FX is supposedly to be the best chipset for OCing the Phenom out there. So it might not impact the chipset-video card combo alone, but the whole system performance. On your specific question of "what do i get", i actually don't know for sure, lol. Also, going the 64Bit way with the 4870X2 could be a good choice, since you have 2GB and the X2 has 2GB and 32Bit OS'es only see 4GB max (3.5GB actually).

Letme do some searching about that issue and i'll post later on.

Esop!

Did u disable v-sync in CCC? remember to also disable all AA and AF options in the CCC because it enables it by default.. That got me another 2k points for doing that.

3dmark is CPU influenced, and 3Dmark Vantage is CPU and Physx Influenced...so I wouldn't worry about it.

As long as your getting good frames in regular be happy and move on, 3dMark is just a way of showing off your e-penis, not a form of entertainment.

Yeah, I totally forgot about CCC AA, V-Sync and AF!

If you have them on, and tell Crysis (or the other games) to use AA also, it's going to be doing double work!

Check that and re run the tests. It's not a hard thing to find on the CCC.

Esop!
