Is my cpu under the minnimum requirements? I understand that most games are gpu based but maybe if i upgrade to an i5 or i3 i would get much better performance

Absolutely. 4100 is an entry cpu. You have a 450 euro gpu with a 120 euro cpu.

get another afterburner or the newest evga prescion x stock clocks should be above 1000 and your overclocked clocks are at 900

Monitor core clock in OSD along with fps so you can make sure your boost and normal clocks are where they should be.

or just uninstall any program that might try and set your gpu clock and just run it at stock. Stock should be enough to max out 90 percent of games right now anyways

You definitely need a better CPU. There is no way BL2 should be unplayable. That's a not a very taxing game, and you have 8GB of RAM with a GTX680. No way in the world you should be having problems playing the game. I can't speak on BlOps2.

When you play one of these to games on the afore mentioned settings, can you see your CPU getting maxed out? That can definitely be a bottleneck, but I don't know if that's the case in your situation. You definitely need to do more testing. If you put the graphics settings down a notch, like medium-ish, are you able to get a solid 60fps? Either way, eventually (or now, if this is your issue), you'd be doing great if you could get an FX-8350. It's AM3+ socket, so it should fit in your mobo, if I'm not mistaken. It's $199 at Newegg - http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16819113284

Is that pic of Afterburner running right after you were playing? Take a screenshot about the same time in game as you did in that pic, once you get the newest Afterburner or Precision X 3.0.4. The core clock of a 680 has no business being at 700Mhz at it's max (if that was while you were in-game, and not just sitting at a menu). There's definitely something wrong there.

Any updates on this? Did you invest in a new CPU, or get the pics for us?

@Xystus

Im not the most knowledgeable guy when it comes to GPU stuff. However there is the possibility that your GPUs build quality keeps it from OC very well (every gpu is different like cpus). Also im not totally sure what model of gtx 680 you have but im pretty sure most of them are voltage locked (meaning the core voltage slider wont do anything). I have a Twin Frozr III 680 that I am able to OC (my voltage is locked). Also don't be expecting to drastically OC your card right away because the 680's do have a bit of a learning curve. it took me a while to find the sweet spot on mine along with what type of OC will crash it. Let me know if you want pics of my settings and GPUZ/Afterburner.

Gosh,
Why didn't anybody told him to go to the basics?

Changing things on the GPu doesn't alter anything? Then certaily CPU seems to be the problem.

So, open up the task manager to check for the CPU usage while you are gaming: is it high or low? I bet it's high - this would confirm the hipotesis of a CPU bottleneck, which is likely what is happening.


I bet also that enabling or disabling AA doesn't change much the performance, because it's mainly GPU based, and since the GPU still has room to work...

Increse your clocks for your CPU!!!
