    i have a 4770 using win 7 with cat 9.5 stable enough GTA IV gives me decent frames at 1080p res?

    what problems are you having, if i remember correctly only catalyst 9.5 has support for 4770!

    Im getting crazy Fps drops on all games.

    Its actually completely bonkers how bad it is , the game is virtually unplayable.

    I thought i had issues with my 9600gt =0 But this takes the biscuit lol

    The fps isnt stable no matter what i cap it to.

    125 250 333 500.

    Its not heat either , my gpu is so cool , at around 39c under no stress. Up to 45C Under stress.

    All other components are also cool , with summer coming up i invested in 3 brand new fans for my system.

    Lovely airflow , lovely temps.

    EDIT:

    As far as i know , its the latest driver out for the ATI card.

    Display Driver ATI WDM Integrated Driver Catalyst Control Center (English Language Only).

    Driver : 39.1MB 9.5 5/15/2009

    All my games are doing it:

    Call of duty 2
    Call of duty 4
    Team fortress 2
    Call of duty 5

    :bang:

    Are you running any particular programs in the background during gameplay? Applications like Fraps, Everest, etc...

    There is only 1x driver for the 4770's, the 9.5's.

    What happens if you turn graphics and resolution down? Does it stabilize the drop,s or do they continue?

    Do you not think it might be something other than your GPU?

    Im 100% sure its nothing else on the computer.

    Lowering the resolution would be pointless , its not even set to medium , this card should be eating this game alive!

    Ive always played my games on medium settings despite having a decent Gpu. 100hz Refresh rate , 1024-800 screen ress , Rendering method dx7.

    I could get 500fps with my 9600gt , this card barley manages 333. :bang:

    Try increasing your screen res....you're barely making use of your GPU at all.

    As far as drivers....only the 9.5 cats support the HD4770...you'll have to wait for the 9.6 cats.

    resolutions that low are pretty well CPU dependent....the graphics card is simply processing DX9/DX10 instructions....the CPU is handling pretty well all the rendering though.

    I'm also wondering if you did a clean install of windows after switching from Nvidia ... Just updating the drivers directly coming from Nvidia is a sure way of getting troubles.

    Your resolution should be set higher. You card is barely working but your CPU is working hard, I bet.

    DUDE WTF?, if your getting more than 60fps you should stop complaining, its COMPLETELY NORMAL for FPS to go up and down

    Im going to ignore the idiot above me. Yes you sgtheadhole :3eyes:

    I didn't do a fresh install of xp , i didn't think i needed to. I uninstalled all the drivers and ran driversweeper.

    There shouldn't be any conflicts :/

    I guess if all else fails i could format later on and reinstall windows xp , but im going to increase my screen ress and see what happens.

    For the record , im just going to add having 60 fps in singleplayer is fantastic , having 60 fps during multiplayer is so dam terrible its untrue. :biggun:

    Thanks for all the suggestions so far.
