Bad FPS in some games

Hello In the last few months I have upgraded my system with new parts. Cpu,gpu, my old hard drive crashed and that was replaced, a new motherboard, cpu fan, and Memory. But after upgrading I actually am getting worse fps then my old parts in certain situations. around 20-35 fps in skyrim, Gta 4 which played decently smooth on my old graphics card is now a disaster, Total war shogun, and deus ex. I am just unsure of my problem or if its my fault when upgrading or something is just wrong. My psu is a little weak I think for what I have but I am not sure. If anyone has a good idea about the bad fps drops please help!! Thank you Here are the specs. Also Ia m not sure if Catalyst Control Center is affecting anything either, it is all set to the default.

  1. I find it hard to consider a Zambezi an upgrade from anything less then a Core 2 series CPU when it comes to gaming. What was your old setup?
  2. In my old setup I had a 2.9 ghz Phenom x4 When i upgraded a guy told me the the zambezi would actually help the problem and I bought it on sale from a website. He said it would make all the difference but it did not. I had an evga 460 gtx 6gb ram 1333 with a stock cpu cooler in a smaller case. Is the processor where I went wrong? I had a budget when I bought the zambezi. I would like to know what you think, much appreciated.
  3. Oops thats not the right name for that processor. But it was clocked at 2.9 I know that for sure.
