What settings do you run in mp ??

I have an E8400(stock) & GTX 570(overclocked manually), right now. I used to get 60 fps constant but now it's about 30 on all medium. Gpu usage shot down to like, 20%. I don't know what happened. Before, I had a 9800gt and I got about 30 fps on all low. I can't wait till I put my new rig together.

try out the 268.55 or any other older drivers!

I'll try it, thanks. I'll post the results back here. Still, the E8400 is really bottlenecking my Gtx 570.

well I do have a 1680x1050 monitor, so that helps me some. The numbers I listed were with everything high except msaa and af (1x). HBAO off as well of course. And 30-40 is the average fps. Heavy action with explosions it drops to 15-20. Completely unacceptable for mp. Basically rush is impossible, every time I get to a bomb site it's like slow motion death. The wife approved a new cpu mobo and ram, I'm just trying to justify spending more money on my pc (to myself). I can turn it down to low after all...

I will admit the 266 drivers I initially installed felt more stable, even if they didn't yield the highest fps in benchmarks.

100% ram and cpu bottlenecking the 470 (only in games that require quad cores) but in any game the ram bottlenecks the 470 either way

so 8gb is worth getting or just the speed of the memo?

It's not the memory. CPU all the way.

well when you are a multitasker 8gb is an absolute must or your are going to run out of memory if you are folding,rendering 3d model and gaming at the same time,but if you are only gaming 4gb should suffice for most games coming out soon but the speed is a huge factor
