NHL 2k8 - performance problems

my rig:
i5 4570
8GB DDR3 Ram
R9 380 Nitro OC

So pretty decent. I run the ISOs from my SSD. When I try to play NHL 2k8 or ESPN NHL 2k5, it drops some frames here and there and isn't smooth overall. I tried different presets but nothing is perfect. I saw a youtube of a guy playing 2k8 perfectly smooth with a 7870 and an i5 so the problem must be at my end. Anybody has a suggestion?

Also the game only runs when a patch is installed. However, widescreen seems to work only when you do a full boot. However, when I do a full boot, the game crashes at the loading screen (as if no patch is installed). If I start it via "fast boot", the game runs flawlessly but doesn't accept the 16:9 settings.

Anybody can help?

FYI, automatic gamefixes will only apply when using fastboot. If you use full boot, you need to enable fixes manually.

Thank you. I am going to provide the missing information when I get home. By enable fixes manually - it means I have to copy them to the cheats folder, right? Do I need to deactivate automatic fixes even though the .pnach file is in the cheats folder?
