And yes I am using the 11.5a hotfix. GTA IV used to run perfectly for me but it now lags like a piece of ****. Should i revert back to older drivers?
Have you looked at my post?

I deleted the drivers and am going to restart the PC and install them again, but after my Defrag completes. I am using the top PCI slot. My antivirus is not scanning or anything in the background. I do not run any other programs in the background apart from Steam. I always have my PC on Hih Power mode. Have't got a clue what Readyboost is. Will it be OK to apply a small overclock with the Stock Cooler?

You could do a small OC but keep a eye on your temps.

No difference at all after performing those steps. Anyway, i plan on upgrading soon so hopefully these problems won't continue

I can definitely assure you THAT is not a bottleneck. -.-

While I don't think you are running into a bottleneck(something is wrong with your system), an Athlon II x3 can easily limit a 6850/460, without question. Both my 460 and 6850 were horrible on my 3.5Ghz x3.

Did Black ops ever run good on it? I didn't try it on my old x3 because I got the game after replacing it with an x4. The x4 ran it ok.

I'm pretty sure it was never as bad as it is now.

Try deleting the config file. Had that problem.

If all else fails, try a system restore or format.

^Try to format once or twice a year maybe. Invest in a backup drive.

The game seems to be running much better since i maxed out every setting. I qas running at lower settings and the frames were much lower, around 80FPS which constantly dropped to 30.
Now i get 90FPS which, when in a lot of action drops to 50FPs. Is this normal for a game to perform better when the settings are maxed out?

NVM, the frames seemed to have dropped again, down to 30-50
