so it seems somehow my drivers got updated to the latest version automatically and that is when I started experiencing problems.
Currently have a 7970 running at 1440p and had no fps issues in any games until the update happend. After that had constant driver crashing when playing FF14 and some other games.
So I did a full uninstall of the latest drivers and rebooted, then installed the newest beta drivers and my FPS problems are just as bad but I have no driver crashing.
Haven't changed any of my settings, is this just a crappy driver rev? or any suggestions on what I should do next.
