Well, I have a MSI Twin Frozr II 560ti, Q6600 @3.2ghz and 8gb of ram. On most games I'm just getting 20% usage on my GPU, just tried to play Planetside 2 and only getting 20fps on low.

Any suggestions on how I can resolve it?

PS2 is very CPU intensive, but it does seem like you're still a little on the low side as far as GPU utilization. When is the last time you updated/reinstalled your drivers?

I have the 310.61 beta drivers at the moment, which are supposedly increase performance on PS2, which were installed about a week ago.

What does you CPU utilization look like when you're getting those frames? I know I was still bottlenecked in some situations even with my 2500k at 4.4.

That game is pretty GPU-intensive, but much more CPU-intensive - I'm averaging right at 30fps around battle zones. That older CPU may be having more trouble...
