Low fps with 0% GPU Usage

Hello, I'm playing an online game Dragon Nest and was wondering whats up with the low fps. I dropped everything to low and still have low fps as low as 15fps. I have attached screenshots with fps counters from fraps on the upper left hand side.

my specs are:

Powercolor 4850 1GB edition - http://www.powercolor.com/us/products_features.asp?id=128
Amd Athlon x3 450
4gigs of RAM

whats bothering me its that despite having 15fps, my gpu usage is at 0-10%

Is my video card really not enough for the game? or something is wrong with my setup?

  1. Sounds like there's a cap in the game. If v-sync is on, try turning it off and see if that improves anything.

    Also, download the latest driver for your HD4850.
