I just recently purchased the GTX 670 FTW 2 GB EVGA. Anyways all is going well but I am assuming I am bottlenecked because I am using the full GPU's power but I cannot hold a constant 60 FPS with max settings with 1440x900 Res

Few separate potential questions

How can I get the best possible performance out of my video card via settings?

What should I upgrade hardware wise to see the largest increase in performance ?

How do I make sure that there is something bottlenecking my video card?


The only reason why I feel it is being bottlenecked is because I was using PreformanceTester which is on videocardbenchmark.net , the overall score is getting nowhere near that of the GTX 680

Why are you gaming at such a low resolution? Are you restricted by your monitor?

More details about your monitor please!

Well just today I replaced my monitor with a 1080 p Dynex which increased my FPS quite a bit. But I cannot even get a constant 60 fps on skyrim at max settings. Am I just having high expectations or is there a problem?
