How to get GPU to do more work?
Okay, SO I have HD 3870 x2(please do not comment something ignorant, the card isn't horrible)
It's usage rarely goes over 50%, while my CPU AMD 5000+ 2.6 ghz oc'd to 2.8ghz is constantly at 100% usage on both cores.
I would like my game to run better(Running gpu dependent settings in high, no difference on fps on or off) while I have my cpu settings lower.
I was wondering if there is a way I could transfer more of the load to the gpu, or to get a better framerate with a weak cpu(Do not suggest upgrading, I will soon and I know what I will do, thanks)
I also have 2.75 gb of ram if that helps too while my video card has 512(on each card, as this card is a dualcore)

As I said, I was looking for relevent answers, Can't buy an i5 with my mobo obviously eiether, Have to go with a Phenom II x4 945 probably.
