I have a powerfull gaming rig, all AMD components. I have the AMD Radeon HD 7950 3GB card. I but whenever I play games on remotely high graphics settings my framerate drops significantly. It should not be doing this right? I have a 3GB card. I am convinced its a setting in either a driver or some other area in my configuration for the card. I am currently trying to run Empire Total War, but i have to put the settings on the LOWEST to get smooth gameplay. I am convinced its a configuration issue though. I checked my performance and it said that only about 1GB of the card was able to be used. All my drivers are up to date. If someone could help me with this issue that would be great. My PC Hardware/specs are listed below. Thanks!
