Low performance?

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?

  1. Far cry 3 loves a quad core, have you tried unlocking that 555? If it doesn't work you may want to get a quad.
