                  also i just get low frames per second theres no need to take a screen shot  when it's just a frames per second issue so there could be cpu bottlenecking i'm thinking about upgrading to black edition wich maxes out 4.1 ghz , the game just runs slow period.

                        It could be a bottleneck issue, but please try the steps below to see if it resolves the issue.

                         

                        1. Run the Windows self check tool to check scan and automatically repair any corrupt files found in Windows. There is a guide on how to do it here.  What you need to do is run an elevated command prompt (elevated means run it as administrator) and type SFC /SCANNOW. This will generate a statement indicating if errors were found the Operating system and if they were fixable.

                         

                        2. Make sure you have installed Microsfot NetFramework and Visual C++ 2013. These should be installed already, but they can become damaged, need repairing or reinstalling.

                         

                        3. Update Windows. Install all available critical, recommended and optional updates. Often Netframework and Visual C are included in the recommended or optional updates Windows provides. Windows should always be fully up to date before installing our drivers!

                         

                        4. Use DDU to sweep the system of AMD drivers.

                         

                        5. Install the latest Crimson 16.6.1. drivers once the above is completed.

                         

                        6. Restart and navigate to Radeon Settings > Gaming > Global Settings and disable Power Efficiency and test to see if performance improves.
