ok so today i just received my 2 HD 6970's and i was under the impression they could run ff14 on max settings with that occlusion setting turned off. maybe its just me that didnt do something right, or i just thought wrong and ff14 is just a bigger beast graphically then i thought. the game with every slider and drop box set to max makes the game slow down to a crawl and looks very laggy.
my question is,with my sepcs is something not right for this setup, and did i crossfire it correctly and how can i tell its working?
specs (not overclocked):
4gb corsair 1333 ram (cpu-z says its running at 1024 but the person i got it off of, from ebay insists its 1333)
intel dx58so motherboard
2x hd 6970 crossfire
for the crossfire, the cards had 2 slots to put 2 crossfire wires on, so i attached both connecting the cards. and before anyone asks, they are plugged in properly to the board and has sufficient power plugged into both.
