i just don't understand you people you buy those graphics cards worth more than the price of 1 ps3 + 1 ps4 yet you still have to hassle with all this kind of bullsh*t:
Update all drivers as well as your games.
Make sure memory is running in dual channel mode and it's actually running at the advertised specs.
Also if your familiar with it, update the motherboard bios.
yet that graphics card gets outdated after two years along with your cpu anyway. i mean, i can't see a winner here other than intel and nvidia. this is bullsh*t.
My previous graphics card (HD 5850) lasted me over 4 years. It is still capable of maxing most games with at least 30fps, and many at 60fps. That card costed me less than a PS3 or an xbox would've 5 years ago and gave me a much fuller experience of games in high definition. I've only just upgraded a couple of days ago to a new £240 graphics card (GTX 770) and I am already getting much more performance than a PS4/XB1 for almost half the price.
A PC can be a really good long term gaming investment if you do it right, especially considering the price of games on consoles in comparison. The only disadvantage of PC gaming as I've come to learn over the years are lack of console exclusives, and the need for some technical know-how on occasion.
Anyway, sorry for deviating off the main post. BarelyLegal, have you perhaps considered overclocking your 7950 to ease out a tiny bit more performance? GPU overclocking is so simple and easy, only a fool wouldn't take the free performance that can be had. You can get gains upwards of 5-10fps, depending on how far you go.
