Low performance? Tags: Homebuilt Performance Systems Last response: January 31, 2013 4:34 PM in Systems Share JasonDK_05 January 29, 2013 5:21:51 AM Hi guys I have an issue with my current system. I lately upgraded from my Nvidia GTS250 to a GTX 660 expecting a much better increase in performance. To the contrary there is something else holding my system back. Here are my system specs: CPU: AMD PhenomII x555 BE (OC @ 4.0 GHz - 1.4V) RAM: 4GB Kingston HyperX DDR800 CL5 (2X2GB) MOBO: Asus Crosshair II GPU: MSI GTX660 Twin Frozr III (non oc) PSU: Huntkey Greenpower 550W HDD: 2x Seagate 160GB 7200 RPM (RAID 0), My average FPS is around 30 FPS but drops by a lot when I'm playing far cry 3. I'm a bit concerned about future games that I will buy and how they will run. Is there something that I'm missing?
