first off srry for my english im dutch.

my problem is that i have recently bought a msi gtx 560 ti hawk,
because i thought it would be a good upgrade from my old 9500 gt,
but now i see that when running mw2 (yeah i know its abit old)
and max out everything i get around 30 - 40 fps with allot of laggspikes.
but bulletstorm can be run on everything maxed out.
also crysis 2 cant be played even on ultra without vsync and AA.

here are my system specs:
CPU: intel core pentium D 830 3,0Ghz
GPU: MSI N560GTX-Ti Hawk
PSU: be quiet straight power dual rail 500W
Motherboard: Acer G945MK
Ram: 2gb running on DDR2

i have never OCed anything

you have a massive cpu bottleneck... put your old gfx back in till you can afford a decent cpu motherboard and ram...
seriously what made you think that a 7 year old cpu could cope with a mid range/comparatively high end modern gpu.
you will need a minimum of a core 2 duo 3.ghz and even then you will bottleneck on some games... better to get a minimum of a 2.4 core 2 quad. minimum bettter still get a z77 motherboard 4 gigs of ddr3 and a intel i3/i5 for around 400. all in...

thx for the reply
well a friend told me it was fine bcause the gpu needs a pentium 4 or higher and he said pentium 4 was worse than a pentium D but i will do what u said and get a better cpu and mobo
cause i already have 2x 4gigs of self cooling ram for DDR3

It will not bottleneck your GPU at all. Even an AMD Athlon x3 will be enough for your video card.
