FPS issues with nvidia 560

[My rig]
Motherboard : ASRock m3A770DE
CPU : AMD Phenom II X4 955e @ 3.2 Ghz
RAM : 8GBs of DDR3 RAM
Video Card : NVIDIA Geforce GTX 560
PSU : Corsair GS800w
Monitor : 1440x900

I recently just got back into pc gaming. Do to some unfortunate things, I had to re-install Windows 7 and I'm just now getting back into gaming. I've been noticing a lot of problems in most of my games though. No matter what graphical settings I choose, my Framers per second do not increase. Examples,

Black Ops
Maxed out settings FPS : 90-91
Lowest settings FPS : 90-91

MW2
Maxed Out Settings FPS : 80-87
Lowest Settings FPS : 83-87

I'm using the 314.07 drivers from nvidia. A couple months ago when I was using the 306.96 drivers my frames in MW2 maxed out, were around 200. I'm thinking it may be the drivers, but I'm not sure. I'm also having a problem in BF3 were no matter how high my frames are, I'm still having stutter. Example,

Battlefield 3
High settings FPS : 50-75
Low Settings FPS : 50-100(Feels unplayable. Microstuttering)

I was thinking of updating my drivers to the 314.22 WHQL drivers, but I thought I'd ask here before I do anything. If anyone could shed some light on this it would be appreciated. Thanks.

Always use WHQL drivers
First clean uninstall reboot and then
Install 314.22 WHQL drivers
Also install latest direcx version from microsoft.
Thanks

1. Boot into safe-mode
2. Unninstall driver from device manager
3. Use a tool to check if there are any left over files/drivers
(I use drive sweeper http://www.guru3d.com/content_page/guru3d_driver_sweepe...)
4. Reinstall the new driver

Also note use task manager to close down background apps which slows down your gaming.

Hope this helps,

Install EVGA Precision X and enable in On screen display de GPU usage, if you see that you are getting lets say 80 FPS with settings max out using 99% gpu and when lower the settings still 80 or just a little bit more but just using like 60 % of the GPU then you have a CPU bottleneck, I tell you because I had a phenom and it was bottlenecking in cpu heavy games

Would you recommend using this method to install the new WHQL drivers?

Okay, I'll try that after I install the newest WHQL drivers. I was just assuming it was the drivers that I have because this wasn't a problem a couple months ago when I was using the 306.96 drivers.

I installed the drivers successfully. However, it did not resolve my issue(s).
