Hello, I recently bought one of these cards. I play BF3 on ultra at 70+ fps which is fine but when I come to play COD4 I can't get 250fps stable where as my old GTS 450 could?

Please help me out :( 

My specs:

i5 2500k @ 3.3
TX650M PSU
8GB RAM

No need to get 250fps. If you have a 60Hz monitor (what most people will have), anything over 60fps is non-beneficial

Have you ever played cod4? 250fps is a sweet spot for moving around the map faster + 250 is 10x more beneficial than 60 :/

The point is that my old GTS 450 got 250 and my new 660 Ti can't?

It doesn't really matter. If you have a 60Hz monitor, your monitor can't display anything past 60fps anyway, you'll just introduce more tearing. Your point is moot :??:

It does matter, I couldn't care what Hz my monitor is that fact is that my new card can't get 250fps (Play cod4 and ask anyone what fps is needed to play well)

It could be a driver problem, when you installed the new card did you do a fresh install of nvidia drivers ?

I installed the latest drivers last night from nvidia, so yeah I guess so

I see you have the same card + cpu kind of, what fps do you get on games?

Well I play a lot of bf3, dayz, borderlands. And I can play at the highest settings with about 100+ on each. I prefer to play on lower settings due to it actually looking better imo.

What I mean by a fresh install is theres actually a option when you install the drivers, that says "preform clean install" it will remove any previous drivers you had before and practically install everything all over again like it was never there. If you just updated the drivers and never uninstalled them, that could be a problem. But if I'm not mistaken I believe COD4 is a lot more CPU intensive than GPU, so I dont think the GPU could be at fault.

you will literally not be able to see the difference between 250 fps and 60 or 70 but check if you have v sync on

Right, Some jumps on cod4 require a higher FPS so that you can jump further and move around the map faster. So I do need to have that higher FPS for advantage whilst playing, Yes I may not be able to see the change in quality but the FPS advantage on COD4 is crucial to how a player plays at LAN events etc... I got more fps with my 450 and than the 660 Ti
