Re: Need some help with my PC..
Damn, that PC should be powerful enough to run every game without problems. I have an FX8350 and R9 280x, and can run almost every game maxing out graphic options with a good frame rate, so you having frame drops is not normal. Have you checked temperatures? Maybe you have a termal throttling problem. Is your PSU enough to run that monster? A 7970 + FX9350 is a very demanding configuration.
I do have to say that an user of a spanish forum with the same CPU as you and a R9 290, had a lot of trouble with his PC and ended up returning it after months of headaches because of the bad perfomance and other problems. If you have the option, you might consider to return it and get a new one.
