I upgraded to a GTX470 from a 9600gt. I don't notice any frame rate difference in BF bad company 2 and in APB and I figured it would be completely smoother and great investment... I formated and re-installed windows as well before installing the video card for a fresh clean installation of the video card. I don't understand... I've read that people say it's like a night and day difference... Is there software I can get to make sure all my hardware is properly working? thanks.

If you overclock the CPU you will see increase in frame rate. These new powerful GPU's of today need CPU speed of 3.0GHz or greater to keep up with them. What resolution are you playing at? The lower it is the bigger the CPU bottleneck.
