    after having a GTX 670 and testing a 760 i'd say make sure its a clean install and download the latest beta on this site. I just installed an MSI 280x 2 days ago and its a beast in everything I have played (I am using a 120hz benq also) It's always a possibility the card was a lemon but that is a very rare thing.

    Not as rare as you'd think. I received a lemon XFX 7850 that had a faulty cooler. Temps got over 90c while idle and 114C+ under load. I RMA'd it and changed up for a 7870. These things are partially assembled by humans, just like most else and are prone to error. Btw, OP has already troubleshooted his card to the max and has returned attempting an exchange of some sort.

    Could'nt it be that the mobo just needs a BIOS update for better compatibility for newer hardware?

    (If he does not have the latest version that is)

    I thought this debate would have been finished already.

    The OP uploaded a screenshot of his CPU showing 60-80% on 6 cores while the other 2 had 0% and 100% load. That's a bottleneck alright, but why is it there 100/0 use on those 2 cores?

    Rather strange...almost like scheduling wasn't working right....?

    Personally I would use process explorer to see what's going on with those cores, possibly disabling HT or Core Parking could help too....as well as overclocking.

    I just upgraded from GTX560Ti in SLi to a HD7970 and the improvement over a Dual card setup is noticeable so must be a problem with your setup if your old Single card GPU is running faster.

    What brand is your 280x?
    I thought 3dmark would have a better usage of 6/8core CPUs,cuz i scored 7000+ on Firestrike with mine.

    I have the windforce 280x and it does run horrible runs fine in game then 5-10mins later BAM! DX device hung. And the voltage is locked so you can't do jack to fix it

    Could be your PSU.

    Or underclock your core by -10 or -20 mhz and see if that does anything.. Should work. Unless it's your psu which I don't think it is.. but still a possibility. Anyways you should look into reducing core clock a bit.. Try -20 mhz in msi ab, should definitely work.. if not try -30.. this issue gets resolved until you hit a good core clock as it's unstable as you can see getting those dx error messages in bf4. I got the same when my oc was unstable. So decrease it a bit and see what happens. Should work.

    Yea something is wrong. I can't tell you the FPS's, but I can only notice some lag when playing assassins creed 4 with everything on ultra 1600x900...

    I wonder how is the new card?
    I have the same psu as you, and it's not a quality psu. 700W peak power without 80+ certificate, I also think psu may cause this
