Make sure you have the latest drivers installed.

try use new install when you install nvidia driver. or remove old card driver;)

Also you can't get constant FPS on "Multiplayer Games". Overclock your GPU little bit if you can Overclock your CPU too. I think it will improve your FPS.

I updated my drivers it helped a little but it still doesnt feel like its running like it should. is the gtx 550 ti just really bad and i wasted my money? i mean i had a gts 250 and it seems like im getting then same preformance even though i upgraded my cpu and ram at the same time.

Give us ALL your old specs and the new specs, so we can compare them...

Also did you connect all PCI-e cables to your new card? The newer cards need 2 (or more) PCI-e cables, 6 pin or 6+2 pin

Is your PSU strong enough anyway?

PSU is good, cables also I see...

Maybe it's not a card that makes a big difference competed to the GTS250... They both aren't high end cards so you can't expect to have it all I guess... And maybe the 250 runs betteer for that specific game then the 550... But most likely the 550 will beat the 250 on many others.

You can always try to OC it tongue.gif

Hmm Maybe, might just have to sink some more money into getting a good card. I rebuilt the computer so i could run skyrim on high graphics, well but looks like a went way wrong with the choice of card...
