Thanks for all the info, as for the resolution I've tried it on different resolutions and nothing seemed to drastically change the frame rate, for an example on path of exile on the lowest setting and lowest res my frame rate hovers between 12-15 fps and that just doesn't seem right,i will look into the driver when I get off work

I am still using an old GTX260 + a 9600GT for PhysX but I am with those that say that the bottleneck could be cause by your graphic card.

First thing I found while googling it was this... Up for review today is a low-end NVIDIA Fermi graphics card, the GeForce GT 520. The low-end graphics processor it uses, the GF119, was released back in April. The graphics card only has 48 Stream processors and uses DDR3 memory with a 64-bit bus, except the cost on this creation is just around $60 USD.

You can't expect much from it.

We never said you were complaining (at least I didn't) ... just showing you the reviews so you don't expect much

As I said, I am still using a GTX260. Hell... I am still using a PC with DDR2 Ram!

The GT 520 is a VERY low end card. See this chart: GeForce GTX 550 Ti | Performance | GeForce

Not really for gaming mate, but hope you do get some fun out of it.

Admittedly, I would assume that 500's would be better than 400's, and so forth, but Nvidia doesn't do that. They release a single card and tweak it for lower and higher end graphics performance (ie the 500 series). This is a way to make more money off it, so those who pay less get less, and those who pay more get more.

i also bought the gt520 and it heats up way to fast playing games. going for at least the 550ti next time. i do have a temp solution tho. bought a small usb powered fan and put it next to the 520 to help keep it cool. my temps stay about 60-65C when its on so it helps.

Now that the 600 cards are out, consider aiming for a 670 or similar.

Poor computer conditions = poor gaming performance?
First off, I didn't know whether to post this in gaming or hardware. Sorry. My question: If there is dust on the videocard and fans or other poor condtions in my computer, can it affect performance in gaming? FPS wise? Thanks, Andrew.

Poor Gaming Performance
Okay I'm a little vexed as I've felt for a long time now that my PC is under performing for what it is (see my specs below), when it comes to gaming. Basically could anybody tell me if the attached results for the Metro 2033 frontline benchmark test match with what you'd expect for a system like...

Poor Gaming Performance
Would anybody have a clue as to why my gaming performance is so poor? I've just installed a new GTX 580 and to my surprise Crysis is incredibly laggy. Even on just high settings at 1080p there is enough stuttering and lag to make the game very unenjoyable, almost unplayable. I've attached the...
