GTX 260 Core 216 Lag (Low FPS)

Hello,
My system specs are as follow:

Intel Dual core E8400 running ad 3.00Ghz (will OC once I install my Noctua NH-U12P cooler), Patriot 8gb DDR2 ram (will upgrade to 8gb DDR3 Enhanced Mushkins when I get a new Mobo), a Corsair TX750w PSU, and an EVGA GTX 260 Core 216 with updated drivers.

My fps in games such as Crossfire (by Z8games), is at about 80, but when I play games like BF:BC2 or BF:p 4F, I get about 30 fps, and sometimes drop to a 20 (depending on how many people are playing etc..)

Anyways, I'm pretty sure my card can do a hella lot better than 20 fps in BF:BC2. This is an RMAd card (my second card as the first one probably stopped working due to OCing).

I can max OC this card from

576 Core clock -> 740
1242 Shader Clock -> 1595
999 Memory clock -> 1280


My temps remain at about 40 (I pull up fan speed to 100%), but I only gain an avg of 3 FPS. :/ 


Something is horribly wrong, I want to record some fraps, but then I manage to pull 10 fps :( 

Any suggestions?

It looks alot like that your dual core is a bottleneck. Drop while doing recording with fraps only confirms this. BC2 plays better on quadcores.

Awww :S

Will OCing my dual core from 3.00 to 4.2 be of any help?

I don't mind it burning out, I'm in need of an upgrade anyways.

The cpu is bottlenecking you so overclocking won't help.I have a gtx 275 which is equal to a oced 260 and I can max bfbc2 with 30-80 fps,never below 30,even crysis and to some extent even crysis 2 at 1680X1050 and thats at stock settings.Buying the i5 2500 or higher should solve the problem
