To add, what games, what results, what resolution - and so forth?

I have a 1600x900 monitor and I also have a habit of liking to play in windowed mode. Its frustrating for me to not switch between applications because I usually have more than 8 or 10 applications opened at the same time. So I either play at 1366x768 or 720p resolution windowed mode. Im WAW, I see framerate drop to around45fps with gpu usage at like around 35% ish and its really frustrating to see that happen

Well it looks like you got a card that is overly powerful for such a small resolution. I mean, running 720p or 13x7 today is akin to running 800x600 or 10x7 in 2006. doh.gif

I realize that some people have monitors that they run at those resolutions for 'X' reason, but um, you're seriously over powered for such a resolution.

I mean, a GTX260 216 overclocked could max out most games today at that resolution, probably including BF3. Not to mention that you still haven't explained what clocks you're at on your 1055T.

Not to mention also, that a lot of games don't fully utilize a video card in a window, let alone at a resolution less than native on that monitor.....

Don't get me wrong - upgrade to an i5 2500K. You still won't see your card pushed or utilized at those resolutions and in a window. redface.gif

Now that I am done having seizures from your avatar... I am contemplating the same decision, and I have all the new parts (p67 sabertooth, 8gb corsair, another 460 2gb for sli, samsung ssd) except the CPU. Every day that goes by I get closer to hitting the buy button on a 2500k, but then I tell myself I have waited this long whats's another month. So, I suggest waiting, there will be at least a small increase in performance.

But 45fps minimum in world at war with 35% gpu usage is very wrong though. My 1055t is at 3.0 ghz. As ive said, my mobo is very finicky about the slightest fsb change and if I go above x214, itll say, please reset cpu settings at post. Itll say that no matter what I do. So if i get a new mobo, why not take that opp. to go intel?

Don't get me wrong, but you're doing it wrong. frown.gif And no, I wouldn't think 35% GPU usage is anything odd at that resolution, let alone being run in a window. Again... your config is quite odd. redface.gif

I mean, we don't even know what board you're using. You might want to fill out your system rig, or just post what you're working with. thumb.gif

There's something wrong then - 45 FPS in a COD game is unacceptable for any Phenom II's paired with a decent graphics card.

All I can tell you is that is a cheap board I got when building my my computer last year. I was on an extremely tight budget(700 dollars). The reviews on this board when it comes to overclocking had the same problem i did.

Its using a very old chipset(NVIDIA GeForce 7025/nForce 630a chipset)

Thats minimum =)

Ive logged the cpu usage and during those low fps moments, one or two of my phe ii cores is at a very high usage(~80-95%) Its usually in the 100's which is still unacceptable for me since with quake based games, i like it in the 160s

Well there's another problem - that board wasn't really designed for overclocking, not to mention although it 'supports' up to a 140w processor, it likely couldn't handle it overclocked. Soooo, low resolution, overly powerful video card, cheap motherboard, low clocked Phenom II, all are suspect to the dilemma.

But again, upgrade to an i5 2500K - at that resolution you still won't see that GPU get anywhere near 99% usage unless you tack on massive AA, let alone (again, for the third time) playing the game in a window...
