GTX 260 Problem

Soo... I just upgraded from a 8800GT one to a GTX 260.
But atm I don't really see any improvements.

Fps on wow (for instance) didn't went up a bit.
GTA4 looked almost the same.

The fps on wow did even get lower than it was and the graphics look worse.

I have the latest drivers 186.18 and I'm running 64bit.

New drivers came out today, think it fixed some GTX 2xx issues.. but maybe caused others? Try downgrading.

No improvements.

In wow it even take time (1min or so) to load the shadowsa nd most of the players. :/

EDIT: Is there a test, a program or something that can show what's going on so you can base yoru replied upon that?

Or maybe showing my Nvidia control panel settings etc.
