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

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?
Hey alphadeltamike, listen, you have a gtx 670 a 400 dollar card if you want to get constant 60 fps on skyrim at max settings its not happening no matter what your going to do unless you get your self an sli with your videocard or get a gtx 690
