Hmm...I dont know where to start.


What driver version are you using?

What are your setting in CCC?What are there setting in CCC?


Are you using FRAPs to view your FPS in games?

Are you using the latest version?



Its really hard to narrow this down because of all the different setting.

Im stumped as well, my bro has his PC (C2D E6750 @ 3.3, 8800GTX, 2gb of RAM) getting 90FPS at 1440 x 900 fully maxed out.


I notice there is a very stupid setting in there, it has to do with the screen. Man i wish i remember what it was, it cut his frames, to like 30fps and I coultn figure why till I changed it. It had to do something with the Res, Multi sampling and refresh rate not matching up.


Make sure v sync is off to lol
