The FPS is low...hmm, define "low", what drivers do you use, what settings are you using, what resolution are you playing at? Keep in midn the HD 6870 is an upper mainstream card, you're not going to hammer it to hard.

In the game i try to run as low as possible, it does not allow me to run the gamer lower then 800x600 nor can i putt off Anisiotropic minimum is 1x.
On these settings i get a FPS between 8 and 12.

i uploaded a screenshot to show the settings (of the game Primal Carnage)

I use the AMD Catalyst Driver Version 12.10

As a weekend gamer I have never heard of those games A 6870 can handle most games on atleast high settings with a few exceptions that don't seem to run that well on maxed settings (at 1080p atleast). Perhaps something is conflicting? Like hardware acceleration driven flash videos open in a browser? It would send the clocks to 2D.

Check the GPU clocks and usage with GPU-Z while the game is running (on a second screen or with background running enabled while logging to a file).

You might also want to verify that you have the two 6-pin PCIe power connectors correctly attached.

Primal Carnage was just released in October so I don't know what you're expecting there. Payday The Heist uses an nVidia developed engine from 2001 (modified, but still 11 years old) and appears to be a PS3 port. Blacklight Retribution is based on the Unreal 3 engine, but is only 4 months old

Dear all,

The problem is solved now, the solution was that there were still old files from old drivers that need to be removed first after that AMD Catalyst Driver Version 12.10 was installed and things work nice again, i can run Primal Carnage much higher then i used to be, now on high detail settings with a resolution off 1280x1024.

Thanks all for your support and insight.

And this is why you have to properly clean up old drivers before installing new ones. Glad it got solved.
