Hello, recently I bought a 285 GTX from Newegg.com. I play a lot of graphic intense games such as World of Warcraft, Guild Wars, Counter-Strike Source, etc. After installing this card I booted up WoW and was getting about 30 FPS, Guild Wars was around 50-70 FPS and CSS about 40-80 FPS. This made me kind of angry because my old card (9800 GT) was getting around the same. My drivers are all up to date, my computer stays about 25 Degrees Celsius in game and video card stays pretty cool.
Here are my specs:
AMD 9800 Phenom Black edition 2.2GHZ
EVGA 285 GTX 1G
MSI Motherboard K9N SLI V2
Seagate 7200RPM 260G Hardrive
Silverstone 600W power supply
8G Dual Channel OCZ RAM
If you know of any problems that be causing my video card to be getting bad framerate, please post a comment. Thanks.

Dude why are you buying those stuff much of a hassle man. You don't know how to overclock? If you do then just overclock, if you don't read some guides and save some money, because there's no point buying these hardware components when i5 is coming out the next day, everything will be worth a lot less.
edit: obsidian86, i just googled something and on gamespot there's Obsidian, would that be you too just curious
Anyway Phenom II is not listed in your MB supported CPUs neither the latest Phenomx4 black, which indicates that your MB doesn't support 125 watts cpu and therefore overclocking your 9600 could be hazardous!
