GTX 460 Under-performing

To make a short story long, I just recently bought GTX 460 as a replacement for my KIA 8800GT. After I got it up and running finally, I decided to test it out with a few games. I first played GTA IV on medium and I noticed an improvement over my old card, but it still didn't feel like a big one. I then tried Bulletstorm 4xAA and the highest settings and probably got 20-35 fps throughout. That's not bad at all, but I read some benchmarks on this card and apparently they were getting 50-70 fps on the same settings (1680x1050/4xAA/High All).

I'm no genius when it comes to this type of stuff, but could my cpu be bottlenecking my card's performance? Here are my specs by the way:

750 Watt Power Supply
Intel i3-530 @ 2.93
2x2 G Skill DDR3-1333
Sparkle GeForce GTX 460
Gigabyte ga-h55-usb3 MOBO

I have nothing overclocked. Is this the actual performance of the card or something not right?

Thanks in advance,
Steve

I found the solution, but I don't know what causes the problem.

I changed the resolution from 1680x1050 to 1600x1200 (16:9 to 4:3) and that made the fps skyrocket. I'm assuming it's a problem with the game.

There are 3 different versions of the GTX460.

Which one did you get?

there is a problem with bulletstorm running at 16X10 (if you read the review on ign it tells you a custom res you can use), also in games that need a healthy quad such as bfbc2 or gta iv, your i3 is not going to cut it, everything else looks fine to me

It's a problem with the game, if the ratio is divisible by 8 or something then it has low fps...
