Hey fellas,

So I have been searching endlessly throughout and can't seem to find too many posts or information about people going from an AMD R9 270x to a PNY Geforce GTX 970. But, I recently did and it's about a -60 to -80fps decrease for Counter Strike Global Offensive. With the 270x I ran at a pretty consistent 250-300 fps depending on the map, with a few taking it down to 220-230. But, I never saw the fps consistently dropping to 130-160 like I have been with the GTX 970. I'm barely pushing 200-230 fps now and I'm at a loss.

Just wanted some opinions if I'm crazy that I thought this GPU was an upgrade or something is actually wrong.

Thanks for any and all help.

Ram - 16gb DDR3 1600 Kingston Fury
GPU - PNY GeForce GTX 970 4gb

I also have ran through the NVidia control panel placing everything I could on performance/max performance, etc. Doing that I can obtain 250+ fps, but the game just looks like garbage compared to the 270x
