To me, 45FPS for a game boasting as backwards gfx technology as COD BLOPS is totally unacceptable. For me to put up with less than a solid 60FPS, the game has to be something special (BFBC2 multiplayer for example). Also, with BLOPS, my graphics card is only 36% utilised at most, whereas my dual core CPU's are normally both maxed out. This is shockingly inefficient use of resources. I wouldn't necessarily say that. Another game, PRO EVO Soccer 2011, runs flawlessly on my old single core XP machine, but like shit on my Windows 7 gaming machine.
