I've recently begun playing Rome Total War again on my new computer (It should be in my sig, but GTX 460@ 750,1500,3800, 1090T @ 3.2, and 8 gigs 1333, 7-7-7-20). I was getting around 15-20 fps, sometimes spiking as high as 40 in battles with few units, but it is only using about 10-12% of my gpu. I recently updated to the 266.58 driver series, which increased the average usage by a hair, but there wasn't a noticeable improvement in fps.

I have the feeling topics like this regarding fermi have been beaten to death. I did a search and came up with nothing, but will apologize regardless if this is an old issue. I'm rather concerned though, as my first computer, a laptop with a 64mb Mobility Radeon 9700 and a Pentium M 1.6 could play this game, so my relatively new video card is shall we say underperforming. This is with settings maxed @ 1080p, single display performance mode turned on, and everything else in the Nvidia Control Panel at default (never messed with this stuff before).

Thanks for any help guys.
