Hi everybody,

my Name is Mario and iam from germany, so please excuse me if my english isn't that good.


Now to my problem, i bought a new System last week with an AMD FX-8120, a Gigabyte 970A-UD3 Mainboard, a XFX 7850 Double Fan Graphic Card, 16GB Ram from G.Skill with 1333 fsb and a Zalman 600W Power Supply.


I noticed that i dont get the performance i should have while gaming.

Mostly i have really low fps around 15 up to 30, its lagging and not going smooth at all.


Iam using Win 7 Ultimate, updated every driver and I have even updated the BIOS. But still iam getting not the performance i should have.


Also i have already tried to oc my CPU and my Graphic Card but still no improvement. I even checked if the system is clocking itself down due to overheating but this is not happening, the average CPU temp is about 30° in IDLE and 45 to 50° while gaming, same goes for the graphic card.


If thats necessary to know what kind of games iam playing, its Planet Side 2 and TERA Online.


The reason why i thinkits a performance problem with the cpu and/or the graphic card is because a friend of my is using nearly the same system but instead of an FX-8120 and a XFX 7850 he is using the Intel/Nvidia pendant.

I would really appreciate it, if someone could help me really fast because i only have 3 Days left to ship them back to the trader.


Best regards,
