Hey everyone!
I recently did a major upgrade for my computer, the only thing that i kept from the previous setup is my "intel core i7 920 2.66Ghz" mother board.
the things i added in the upgrade are:
* seasonic 600W active pfc 80 +12cm fan psu ss-600et (oem)
* antec three hundred two mid tower gamer black case (no psu)
* Monitor: Dell U2412M Ultrasharp with Led IPS 24 inch wide screen
* Graphic card: asus gtx 650 2gb GDDR5 DX11
* Memory: G.skill ares 2X4GB ddr3 1600Mhz PC3-12800 kit cl9-9-9 (f3-1600C9D-8GAB)

I am using windows 7 64bit enterprise edition.

The problem is:
My graphic card seem to do a bad job...
I tested it on the game far cry 3.
it looks like the game is playable only on medium quality settings or lower,
Anything above that gets really low FPS...
I did a 3dmark basic test and it showed very bad results in the Fire strike test
you can see the results here if it helps:

Please if someone can find what the problem may be that would be awsome :) !!!

I have gtx 650 2GB and Far Cry 3 too :) 
Try to play on full screen. I will try the same test that you did and if its way off then is something wrong with your GPU.
And update your drives (if you havent done it already)

Ok so here is my results :
Ok so if you play on full screen so it laggs less. Try putting max gpu buffred frames to 2.

Yes , a can play on ULTRA but the frame rate is from 16- 20 soo unplayeble.
