The nuts.... I upgraded this week Old specs e4500 2.2 dual core 8800gts 640m 4g pc2 8500 lga775 New specs i3 560 3.3 dual core gtx 460 SE 1g 6g pc3 1600 lga1156 I ran super_pi and hit 1M digit in 12s. So I think the processor is okay. I ran furmark and scored 1716, noticing my fps average was 24.... I'm pretty sure my card should be running significantly faster... I installed the newest drivers, rolled them back, and tried the ones that came with the card.... the drivers aren't effecting performance. The other important note is that a game I play regularly.. I barely notice any improvement in the smoothness of gameplay, and my roomate's computer, which has comparable specs to my new set up runs it flawlessly on the same settings. I can't figure out what's going on, but I could really use some help.
