and also in game i get massive dips really often into the 30's when this card shouldnt drop below 60.
so shouldnt i able to turn everything to max, like high shadows and 32x csaa and enable vsync (with tripple buff) in nvidia cp
Then I misread that. Because you mentioned about enabling vsync. Do you have anything else running in the background other than your games such as web browser with a video in it, video editing software, and etc.
Exactly fraps is notorious for lowering fps considerably. Look at how many forum posts there are complaining about fraps. If you want something to show your framerate use something like Evga Precision or MSI afterburner to show an overlay of FPS without slowing your game down.
