you sure it wasn't your 4gigs of ram or anything like that?

and you said expect bf bc2 and bf3 then you went onto to say they used 99percent of your gpu so i am abit lost atm?

or maybe your cards do not require to go 99%...

I don't get 99% usage of my Graphics card on TF2. That's because it doesn't need to.

Modern games are bottlenecked MUCH MUCH more on the GPU side then the processor. It's a myth that the best video cards are perfectly pared with the best Processesors for no bottlenecking. Most games need much much more graphics then processing power, and the 1100t is actually pretty comparable to the 2500k, which is the most anyone recommends for gaming (the 2600k is complete overkill.)

The 1100T will not bottleneck you, and more then likely, you will need a new graphics card before you need to upgrade the processor (Unless game requirements shift dramatically.)
