Hey guys, I don't know too much about computers, but i need help figuring out what the problem is with my system. I get 40-50 fps in source games, 20-25 fps in Company of heroes, and like 17 fps in BFBC2 even with dx 9 mode on and all the other stuff set to low or medium. Anyways im trying to figure out if this is hardware related or software related, its really bothering me because everyone else with equal to or just less than systems are getting better frames. here is my system specs from dxdiag. its a bit long so please just bare with me here.

that is weird man :S
i get 40fps on COH with a gtx 260 and a core 2 duo :S so it should not be a problem for the 280 and the phenom....
what psu (power supply) you use?
have you tryed using new drivers from Nvidia's site?
Ups! 1920 *1200 res
it seems from all the posts we get, the game likes a fast quad core
i have never played it so i cant tell you
that might be just true, mi core 2 (E4600 2.4ghz) was having a hard time trying to keep up with the gtx. After some overclocking, i play MOST of the games at 60fps or more .... besides GTA4 and bad company 2....
Edit: wich are QUADCORE HUNGRY!!
My power supply is an antec 620W and ive got the newest of the new as far as drivers go, you guys think my CPU is the bottleneck?
PSU sounds fine....
I would say "try to overclock it and see what happens" but since you said you didn't know much about computers
plus, im not familiar with overclocking AMD's cpus
Try downloading EVGA precition overclocking tool, there you can watch the temperature, gpu usage, memory usage....
That information might be usefull, maybe it's overheating??
Or maybe the cpu is the bottleneck (GPU usage will be low)
