Bad FPS with good pc rig

Hi,
this is my pc rig:
ASRock N68-S3-UCC
AMD Athlon II X4 640 3.00 Ghz
Asus Gtx 660 2GB GDDR5 OC
4 Gb RAM
Win7 64...
now most of games work good and I have good framerate, but when I run games like battlefield 3 or 4, and ArmA 3 my FPS if very bad. I know my cpu isn't the best but I've seen others with same cpu getting much better fps...what could be problem with my pc?

  1. Many things determine performance, the presence of anti aliasing, vSync, Resolution and detail level. How are your games set up?
  2. well in Arma 3 I lower every possible setting...disable vSync and AA...whatever I do I still get bad FPS...
  3. your cpu is a turd. to get a decent upgrade a new cpu and supporting motherboard is needed. lower game settings until you can do something about it.

    *CPU is not that bad...dont be such a dick swifty :/

    @the Op, it could be system memory (probably could use more than 4GB regardless)...or a driver issue. I'd try re/installing latest nVidia drivers and see how you fare.

    You can also monitor system resources while youre gaming and see whats out of whack...CPUID, EVGA Precision X are good tools to check things out. Good luck friend, let us know if you find anything

    ty for answer, I have newest driver but I'll try monitoring and let you know the results :)
  6. My guess would be that the problem is that you only have 4GB of memory. I am honestly surprised that those games even run on a system with only 4GB. See if you can get 4 more GB of the exact same kind of ram you have. If not, you can get a nice 8GB set of GSkill 1600Mhz ram for around $70 on newegg.
  7. I hope that problem is in memory...its not that expensive and its easy replaceable
  8. Just leave task manager open and see if CPU or memory usage is hitting 100% then you will know for sure.
  9. Arma was dropping the FPS on me too and everything I have is top notch, the problem was the ram. I upgraded to 16gb and now everything runs like a champ on top settings.
  10. thx for help everyone :)
  11. so what did you do to fix it?
  12. I'll just buy new 8gb memory
  13. so you don't know if that's going to work? you just picked an answer without knowing. you're very cpu bound. you can fight it all day.
  14. Arma ran good for me when I adjusted my own settings ignoring clouds and such, but the recommended nvidia settings ran slow until I upgraded the RAM. Try making your own adjustments instead of using the preset nvidia settings they don't get it right.
  15. I can almost guarantee that it is your cpu that is completely hindering you. My friend had a core 2 quad extreme and he was getting low fps in bf3 and bf4 wiht a gtx 280. As soon as he upgraded he saw a big fps boost. Since you have a good gpu, I think that it is time to sell the processor, memory, and mobo and get some new hardware to support the new gpu ;) These games are very cpu intensive. BF4 uses around 70 percent of my core i7-3770
