Old Graphic Card Runnnig Better Than New One

I recently decided to upgrade my pc graphic card, because my old one wasn't good enough for the next gen graphics.. Before i had a msi gtx geforce 560. I now got a asus gtx geforce 760. My problem is, that my computer is now lagging more in games than before. I have installed the newest driver to the graphic card from nvidea's website, but it's still lagging a lot. For example i used to run everything on high in black ops 2 with my old graphic card, but with my new graphic card it's often lagging in some situations. In battlefield 4 i'm running everything on the lowest settings, and i'm running at 25-30 fps. I have no clue what is causing the problem, but somethings must be wrong if my old graphic card is better than my new one.

I'm pretty sure i have installed drivers to the other parts of my pc.

  1. The CPU is too weak for it I guess.
  2. Fx 4100 shits with gtx 760. I would advice you to change your cpu to i5 or i7 (ivy bridge and above).

    Dear, it is your CPU who is bottlenecking your graphics card. Pl upgrade your CPU so that you can get the best results from your graphics card. Remember strong graphics card with average/low CPU will be severely bottlenecked. You should have upgraded your CPU first.
