I'm experiencing some incredible lag in town and near crowded crystals. My setup is as follows:
965 @ 3.9
MSI Hawk 5770 @ 950/ 1280
4GB ddr3 1066
Seagate 1.5 TB HDD
Windows 7 ultimate 64
Everything is stable, as I ran prime for approximately 18 hours with no issues what so ever, as well as MSI's bench that comes with the afterburner software. Initially I was thinking that my GPU was just too underpowered, but my temp. NEVER goes over 60c. I was thinking about pushing it a little more, but I don't want to fry the poor thing. If it is my card, should I just buy another hawk and run xfire, or should I try n sell the hawk I have and buy a 5850 or one of the new 6800 series? If I'm not mistaken, my board will run 16x/ 16x in xfire so I imagine the performance would surely be noticeable.
Thanks in advance guys/ gals.
Edit: By horrible lag I mean my fps drops to 20ish in congested areas, while out n about I run around 55 fps. My game settings are windowed 1920x1080, everything set to standard, shadows on low, AA and all the other stuff is off.
