old set up: AMD A8 3850 MSI A75ma-g55 discrete 6670 xtx 2g for duel graphic mode 16g ram 2 TB window 7 New set up: AMD a10 5800k gigabyte f2a85x-up4 6670 xtx 2g for duel grahics same ram same TB window 8 (IN DUEL GRAPHICS MODE ) on my older set up i would play borderlands 2 in 1280x720 and get 40 frames while moving shooting etc etc. But on my new set same resolution and im only get 33 frames. And there are time were when im turning i get a spike goes down to like 22 frame for a split second . goes away for a long time then random but not because of large scale shooting I don't understand at all. same for skyrim but im putting the setting lower on skyrim??? im playing skyrim in 1920x1080 was at 45 to 50 frame on old setup. im getting the same kind of frame on slightly lower setting but when turning or moving i get s spike as well. but its once for skyrim then goes away. i have not tired out plantside yet but i probably dont need to lol. All so. will me buying the AMD 7850 be even worth it. Ive seen some review being held with that card. i know the 7850 is bad ass but with the processor.
