With GTX 680 still getting low frame rates.

Hi all,

I recently bought an EVGA GTX 680 SC Edition to upgrade from an ASUS GTX 550ti. When I bought this card I was hoping to get a at least a 60 frames when I play games on my PC maxed out, however that seems to not be the case. When I maxed out the graphic on games such as Dirt 3, Witcher 2, Battlefield 3, Borderlands 2, Far Cry 3, and Sleeping Dogs I was not able to get such high frame rates as that of those who had posed videos on youtube with the same card. I generally get about 30 to 50 frames depending on the location I am at in each of the games. Is there anything I can do to improve the frame rate, besides lowering the settings?

Here are my specs:
Processor: AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition (OC from 3.4 GHz to 4.0 GHz)
GPU: EVGA GTX 680 SC Signature Edition (02G-P4-2685-KR)
Mother Board: H-RS880-uATX (Aloe)
Display: HP 2009m (1900X600)

I appreciate all of your inputs.
