Check the settings in AMD Catalyst. The higher rated Radeons come with a Good overclocking and monitoring program as part of Catalyst.Especially the ASUS made ones. Hope this helps

Cant even run wow >.> ok, I just bought a gaming

Whats your FPS in wow? (Can be seen by hovering your mouse over the Game Menu sign (the questionmark)).

Is it only low in cities with a lot of players or is it just low overall?

Nonetheless lowering the graphics will obviously help.

Just press Escape to enter the Game Menu, and then press System, and go to the Graphics tab.
You could lower the overall graphics by taking the slider down, but I believe the most important things you should do would be:

Multisampling: 1
Shadows: Low
View Distance: Fair or Low

I would also lower Texture Filtering and Texture resolution.

The thing is I am not entirely sure how the things will change when you use the slider, but I would definitely recommend just trying to slide all the way down at first. If the settings I mentioned above are higher than I posted, I would put them down as well.

Especially Shadows can be a real FPS killer.
The View Distance has no real affect and is just for the looks.

Your PC should be able to run WoW fairly well if you adjust the settings. If you wish to increase the performance without lowering the settings I'd recommend buying some more RAM though.

Anyway, tl:dr:

Press Escape to enter the menu, click System -> Graphics -> turn the slider all the way down to Low. Make sure the shadow settings is in fact on low as well. All the settings under the Effects tab can all clear up some fps if lowered/disabled.

Dual Graphic cards not performing with Crossfire

Hello, I apologize that you are having issues with you PC.

As an avid AMD/ATI user I also ran into this myself. In fact every crossfire set up I have done shows the exact same results. Card 2 clocks always show up much slower than Card 1. What I found out what that since Card 2 is technically a "Slave" it only does work when Card 1 "Master" needs a little help. Newer cards now share equal workloads unlike its older counterparts. I have also noticed in various installs that crossfire doesn't work near as well when a "bridge" cable is not involved. Instead of the cards communicating through their own cable they must send the info back and forth through the motherboard. Not very efficient.

I current am running Dual 5870's in Xfire with the internal bridge. When not using graphics intensive programs my Card 2 shows core clocks in the 200-400mhz range. When gaming the card clocks move back up to their full range.

Unless your seeing some noticeable issues or "lag" that you have't experienced before I would say your two cards are just fine.

I have this card overclocked to it's maximum potential . Recently experience a 10~15 sec low fps in every game . For example, from 100 FPS it drops to 25 and then back to normal . My pc is an avarage one....

You are overheating. The frame rate drops as a protection to let it cool down a little, otherwise your card would get fried.

Sometimes less is more... reduce overclocking to a level the cooling fans are able to maintain a temperature low enough to not trigger the emergency break. You'll loose a few FPS at the benefit your system behaves more stable and has a longer life. Rule of thumb: a raise of 10°C in average operation temperature of any IC reduces its lifespan by 50%...

I have a problem with fps. When i bought my acer 5315,the fps was good when i played games, but suddenly the fps dropped to 2-8. I have tried updating all the drivers and stuff and dont know what to do

Games always need RAM and Graphics cards to keep the frames from stuttering.Your Acer
Manufacturer: Acer Product MPN MPN Aspire 5315-2153 Key Features Processor dtrquestion.gif Celeron M 1.73 GHz Hard Drive dtrquestion.gif 80 GB Serial ATA Display 15.4 in. WXGA+ TFT Active Matrix Processor Processor Type dtrquestion.gif Celeron M Processor Speed dtrquestion.gif 1.73 GHz Memory Installed RAM 1 GB
is low on both.Win XP x32 likes 3GB of RAM and Vista wants even more.The Frames Per Second is purely a Graphics Processor Hog.
This is from Fixya website;
Your graphics card "is" built in and cannot be upgraded.The latest drivers "from Intel" is your only option for an upgrade. To be less graphics intense decrease your screen resolution by right clicking your "desktop" and clicking "properties" then "settings".Move the pointer left one click "screen resolution".The screen will jump around a bit while it's resetting,hit "apply" and "ok".The resolution will now be less but your game will speed up-some-ultimately this laptop is not built for fast paced games.Sorry bout the news,take care!

Graphics Comparison

I beleive that your onboard is pretty much the equivelent to the geforce card you have spec-wise. But the 3300 a much new technology and has a faster processing speed in comparison to the geforce 6600 (not sure about the 7200).

In anycase, if you get yourself another ATI HD card (2400, 3450, or 3470) you can actually run them both as a Crossfire set up. Also, you can slight overclock your onboard video just a tad if that is a route you wanted to take.

The HD 3300 onboard was meant to be a better option over more entry level cards on the market today.

If you're still not sure, you can always do a 3dmark or gaming FPS test on each gpu to see which gives you the best outcomes.

Framerate problem after installing new driver


Review pages abound. This is a horrible driver. I have included two pages with some information about your driver. As I don't know what your graphics card is, I can't recommend the correct driver, although suggestions are made on the second link I have given you.

After I plug in my graphics card it makes a high pitch squealing.

Unplug the board, don't put the side panel on and listen for the sound. Sometime a rolled up newspaper can be used as a stethescope and help determine the squeal location.

Screen goes blank for a few seconds, i get an error from vpu rec.


I'm sorry the video card has a hardware problem, have you overclocked it?

the card froze and stoped responding to the commands from the driver. so it had to reset.

This can happen if the card is damaged, by overclock, or the clocks are too high, voltage too low or too high, this is all related to overclocking.

But this can also be caused by overheating.
