    960T + 7850, is there a bottleneck somewhere?

    What about this one: http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820231314

    960T + 7850, is there a bottleneck somewhere?

    Sorry for the delay. I was sort of busy. I'm running with those settings at 2.1V. It's stable so far. I did notice a slight improvement, and can finally reach at least 90% GPU utilization in some ares, but still struggles in others. Like I mentioned, if I play in servers with 32 players or...

    960T + 7850, is there a bottleneck somewhere?

    Because the other 2GB don't support 1066. Since I just removed them, I can try changing it back to 1066. I'm not sure where do I set the 5-5-5-15 values and, is 2.1V safe for my old mobo?

    It's this one actually.

    960T + 7850, is there a bottleneck somewhere?

    Tried with the 4GB at 800MHz, dual channel config, very similar results. Maybe a 2 or 3 more fps, and this could be attributed to other factors. Never done RAM OC myself either, but these are my current settings:

    Funny thing, those are the exact same items I just put on my cart. Ok... brb.

    960T + 7850, is there a bottleneck somewhere?

    It's 2x2GB and 2x1GB. Running at 800Mhz. I can give you timings if they are relevant.

    960T + 7850, is there a bottleneck somewhere?

    Is there a way to measure this in my setup?

    960T + 7850, is there a bottleneck somewhere?

    They are not exactly random though. It's specific areas that cause this. And I just noticed something. On empty servers, or servers with very few people, this doesn't happen! But as soon as I connect to a 64 players map, FPS drop in those areas. Weird huh....

    Well you are convincing me into going with the mobo+ram path.

    And your friend?

    960T + 7850, is there a bottleneck somewhere?

    I could.... try upgrading the mobo and RAM. If it doesn't work then upgrade to your CPU or better.... that still would be cheaper than moving to Intel. What res and settings do you play at?

    960T + 7850, is there a bottleneck somewhere?

    What CPU do you have? Upgrading mobo + ram would be much much cheaper.

    Is he able to maintain good FPS?

    960T + 7850, is there a bottleneck somewhere?

    Oh man. That's the thing. I could spend those $400 but it wouldn't be the most responsible expense right now. But if that's the only way then I'll wait for a few weeks and move to Intel. Does he play BF3?

    960T + 7850, is there a bottleneck somewhere?

    Yeah. Same thing I was thinking. I just don't know which path to take. Upgrade Mobo+Ram, stay with same CPU, or move to Intel (CPU/MOBO/RAM)....

    960T + 7850, is there a bottleneck somewhere?

    I'll try later today. What's a profile driver?

    Yup. Catalyst 12.6.

    960T + 7850, is there a bottleneck somewhere?

    Yeah, I was expecting something like this, but, I remember with my old 6770, whenever I saw a drop in FPS I would see the GPU utilization at 99%. I'd be absolutely sure it was maxing it out. With this 7850, in those specific areas it actually lowers to 50%-60%. Plus, lowering resolution is not...

    960T + 7850, is there a bottleneck somewhere?

    Just tried closing all apps, disabling AV, disabling Aero. Same results. In some areas game runs at 28FPS with 50-60% utilization.

    960T + 7850, is there a bottleneck somewhere?

    I'll try that. I posted some results above. It's always in the same areas so I posted screenshots for those areas + a random screenshot where I'm getting 50-60fps for each settings group (my settings, the ones natr0n recommended and everything in low). There is little difference between those...

    960T + 7850, is there a bottleneck somewhere?

    I tried a couple combinations. Very little difference. My config (Everything ultra except AA Defered and Motion Blur): http://imgur.com/Sz13m,ja29i,CyRtw,wVKRL,F1YyC,yK7Qs#0 Your settings (AA off, Shadows Low, HBAO off): http://imgur.com/2JcZI,zBzyw,fO273,w71xN,AGrSY Everything...

    960T + 7850, is there a bottleneck somewhere?

    I have AA Deferred Off and Post on High. Will try disabling post. Also, I attached my current config. Definitely plan to. I just don't want to waste money doing this if it means any AMD cpu can't cope with this GPU.

    960T + 7850, is there a bottleneck somewhere?

    So sorry guys! I forgot. Running at Ultra, 1920 x 1080, AA (uhhh, the first one) off. Putting everything in low doesn't seem to make a difference.

    960T + 7850, is there a bottleneck somewhere?

    Hi guys! I recently got a 7850, been playing a lot of BF3 lately and noticed that while I'm able to maintain 50 - 60 fps most of the time, there a few places where my fps drop to 30 or less, and my GPU usage drops to about 60-70%. The only thing that occurs to me is that my CPU is bottle...
