You're running as admin right? And what is your video capture set at? if its at like 30fps then it will force your computer to play at that.

Yes, and it is set for 60fps.

is this for every game...?
then check your screen refresh rate in screen rez panel.
or it maybe the game has vsnc enabled either by the nvidia panel or in game... sometimes when a card cant sync properly at 60 it will drop to 30... or is forced to 30 after being a console port.

if its just for 1 game then it may just be you have 16x fsaa settings maxed if so drop it to x4
