Recently I bought a gtx 670 for my gaming pc build and was disapointed to find that it was not performing correctly in games such as Skyrm and BF3. I was expecting around 60fps minimum from both games but found that on ultra settings with tweaks such as turning off vsync and downing AA it would manage these framerates before quicky dropping to around 30-40 fps and staying there.
Currently I am running the 301.42 nividia drivers and have tried previous versions with limited success. After running after burner I discovered a significant drop in GPU usage after a short period of time with temperatures barely rising above 50 degrees.
I dont Know whether its just crap drivers or if the factory OC is bad.
Any suggestions on how I could fix this?
Thanks in advance and sorry I could not be more specific, I am relativly new to the this.

It was in the high 90's then it drops suddenly to around 60% running at around 40 degrees. In regads to drivers I dont know which are most stable at the moment from what I have heard they can be buggy for some but not others. When I have installed them I have always done a clean instal but now I dont know whether I might need to use driver sweeper.
Ok been running afterburner and my max GPU usage was 41% on Skyrim ultra with no AA with an average fps of around 50. This is running the older 301.34 driver insaled via custom clean instal. You mentioned it might be a cpu issue if so how would I fix this?
