Because the graphics card is not the limiting factor...it's your processor. Any card in the 7900 series will max out that game easily, however the CPU is a little old. It is a good CPU for the money, but when it is paired with a high end card like that, it's weaknesses will begin to show.

^That^

Most games JUST require a powerful GPU, some few others require a good CPU.

CoD is probably using all 4 cores and benefitting from the quad core CPU.

Based on a quick Google, looks like Dragon Nest only uses 2 cores.

And some games just don't perform well due to poor coding, or offering higher settings than most computers can handle. You can try lower settings, but if the coding is poor, it might not matter.

You may actually see better results with high settings, since that takes the load and places it on the graphics card. If your motherboard supports it, then the AMD FX-8320 has fantastic bang for buck.

Ohh. okay. i'll try to test it out on high settings. And yes. my motherboard supports it and i was actually planning on buying that by next month.
