I Replaced my gtx 285 with a gtx 650 ti and.. all my games r doing much worse??? i thought gtx 650 ti was better than gtx 285. I have extremely low fps in all games.

Specs: i7 920 cpu
power supply: OCZ 700 watt
12gb of ram
windows 7-64bit
1.5tb hd
256gb SSD
runing dx11


EDIT: I updated my drivers and yes it is installed correctly

Performance between those two cards is rather similar. The GTX285 should be a bit faster then the GTX460 (stock anyways...) and the GTX650TI is faster then that as well. I wouldn't have bought the GTX650TI, its more of a sidegrade.

It shouldn't do any worse then what you had before. Seeing as you already updated the drivers, I'd try removing all drivers, run the driver sweeper program, and install the newest one. Also make sure you are comparing the cards with the same settings.

That's definitely odd, the 650 ti should be about 30% better than the 285. I honestly don't know what could be wrong unless you have a defective card.

:non:  :non: 

650Ti and GTX285, both of card in the same tier, depend on what game are you playing 650Ti just a hair faster than GTX285..

you can't say that hair as a 30%.. :D 

yes, this is side grade, not an upgrade..

But why it perform worse..?

Quick and dirty analysis.. :D 

285 still in dx10, and 650Ti is in dx11..

while your playing games, some of games automatically set to dx11 while you set highest setting available, and 650Ti -as a low mid class gpu - is not strong enough to server playable fps to your monitor

but when you play your game in gtx285 -very high end, king of the hill in 2xxx series - , it just running at dx10 mode, lighter load to gpu processing, as a result give higher fps..
