I am using an old Dell Monitor s199wfp monitor, but i dont think this could be the issue or is it? Is their anything I can do to improve the FPS? I thought gtx570 was powerful, so I figured itd be running near 60fps. Any help would be great.
Your results are good. You'll be able to max out games on your resolution and still get good fps. Synthetic benchmark programs like 3dmark just help you see how powerful your setup is compared to others and doesnt really tell you directly how well you'll do in games.
Thanks for the info. I installed Starcraft 2 and it defaulted to medium settings, but I thought it set to Ultra setting. I did it manually and it worked fine, but I wasn't sure why it defaulted to medium, given the video card I have.
