first let me start off by showing my specs.

8gb DDR2 Ram

Intel Core 2quad CPU Q6600 @2.40ghz

64 bit, windows 7

and a Gforce GTX 570 thats 1280 mb GDDR5

I also play my games at 1920 x 1080

Now the problem:

i have been experiencing lag issues that should not be happening at all the 570 is one of the best video card on the market right now and even games like Planetside 2, i can get anywhere from 14 to 40 fps on medium graphics which i should be able to run it on high with 60 + fps. Also playing the first Call of Duty Black Ops its fps drops and low FPS in general. Also playing Need for Speed Most Wanted i get a typical low of 19 fps. I dont know why I would be lagging, I cancel out any programs running in the background but still manage to lag, any help would be appreciated thanks.


then i would recommend looking at an i3-3220 with a decent "budget level" motherboard -maybe something of the B75 chipset flavor.

if money is really tight then a sandy bridge i3-2120 with a H61 motherboard.

edit: i just notice that you could get a heatsink and overclock the Q6600 to around ~3Gz to see a decent performance difference . . that 2.4 is really killing you.
