Hello, my system is sort of a strange combo but here are my specs.
AMD FX 4100
Gigabyte GA 78LMT S2
8 GB of RAM
ASUS 7970 Direct CU2
1000 WATT PSU
Windows 8 Pro 64bit
Catalyst 12.11 latest beta drivers with the latest CAP installed (not that it matters fo this issue)
I have been noticing that in games my cpu usage rarely goes above 50% in games like FarCry 3 and Skyrim of maxed settings but still my cpu is causing alot of lag in just about all of my games
I ran some 3D mark 11 tests and my cpu P scores anywhere from 3900-4000 where other people are getting 5400ish scores on their FX 4100s
My gpu P score is just under 11000 so it is definatally not my gpu causing the lag in my games.
Could it me my cheap 780g chipset motherboard causing this problem, if so I was thinking about buying a 990fx chipset board.
