How do i know if am using my graphic at its best?

For some reason i get the feeling that am not using my graphic card full potiental, becuase i have dual Ati 5970's and when i play napoleon total war, my whole pc just shuts down when i zoom all the way in, also, when i benchmarked it on 3D setting thing that i downloaded, it was only giving me 32 Fps, with a resolution of 1024 X 768, and ive gone to youtube and i seened that these cards could do alot better then that... and i lagg a bit, or my game crashes when i play crysis at ultra high settings, and i seened people play crysis at ultra high setting with good fps with only 1 5970, and i have 2, can anybody tell me a way to find out if my graphic cards are working properly? or am i using it at its full power?

It may be that your Crossfire setup isn't working properly. I'd take out one of your graphics cards and see if the problems persist. If they don't, then you've likely got a crossfire problem. In this case you need to make sure that your motherboard supports two PCIe 2.0 x16 slots (Some support two slots but force them to run at 16x & x8 or x8 & x8), make sure that your cards are setup to use crossfire properly and make sure that both cards are functioning properly.

o.o

well i bought it from alienware so i doubt there is any crossfire problem, but i think i found the problem, when i click on cpuz64 to look at my processor details, the processor speed is only at 1604.0 mhz, when i first got my computer the core speed was at 3208.0, why did it drop significantly? my processor speed is i7 920 2.6ghz, ( it changes to 3.2ghz automatically when i load it)

Diabolical, fill in your system specs completely. If you have TWO 5970, I assume you're not some newbie to PC gaming (who spends more than $1K just for display adapters without knowing what it's capable of?).

Diabolical, you can start with providing screenshots of device manager, especially driver versions, graphic adapter related info, GFX temps, etc...
