I upgraded my computer over a year ago, and have been extremely happy with it until I upgraded my monitor. My monitor now uses 1920x1080 resolution, and I'm beginning to wonder if my processor is a bit too slow, or if buying another video card would solve some of my issues.
I'm very picky about frame rates. If I'm not getting constant 50fps+ while playing a game and I dip down to around the 15-30fps area, it is a huge annoyance for me.
Borderlands and Far cry 2 are just two of the games where the frames fluctuate quite a bit during game play. I'm mainly concerned with keeping a consistent frame rate. I would like to get rid of the large jumps. Will another video card help, or are some of these game engines just not optimized very well?
