Hello all,

 

     I have done everything that I know how to do for this GPU. I never let it bother me (Mostly because I didn't look at what GPU it really was under the hood until recently when I did a deep clean of my system [someone else built this rig for me and gave it to me]) But, I have installed every driver I could think to install, reinstalled the GPU completely, updated BIOS, updated everything I can think of to update. This is really bothering me and I know that if I were to change the settings to have my PC say that I have a 7870 installed I could start playing a ton more games than I could before; among other things.

 

 

Thanks for any help that you can provide me.
