hello rodney i have a question for you, i just bought an MSI HD 5870 video card the problem is ive got only 14fps when playing dirt2 and other games i got a lower fps too, what seems to be the problem i tried everything i could but still no luck the only i didnt try is reinstalling the windows....and the last video cards i used was the HIS HD 5750 in crossfire and that one works better than this HD 5870 i have today thats why i wonder so much about the performance decrease on this monster card....more power to you..

Have you tried resetting the card in the PCI E slot on your motherboard?

Try updating your motherboards BIOS, then install the latest ATI video card drivers.

Does the video card have power plugged into it?
Do you have more than one PCIe port to try?
