Hi guya - im so tired I am on day 4 trying to get a rig with a msi r9 270x to run smooth GTA V


I have tried various drivers, numerous settings always around the same FPS .... now at last on totally low settings i have 50-80fps BUT only 50-70% GPU usage..


My CPU usage goes from 60-80% never maxed out .....


I have just tried deleting radeon soft to see if it was forcing something on ... but no ......I cant believ when i search for this on google many results ...THERE must be a solution ....

all my nvidia run at 99% all the time ....what is wrong ..i really have to give up


I just tried FURMARK - stress test no antialiasing - gave 99% -63% -99%  ect ect ..... 


I gave up on fan issues - but this also .....
