Problem with gtx285 and TF2

Hi all,, I am new to this site and so far i like it...

I have a problem when I play TF2 with my new card evga gtx285 my FPS is only around 50-60 however when I play with my old HD4870 i get 140-150 fps.
I got all the newest drivers and what I think the problem lies somewhere with in the nvida control pannel because there is many more option than in CCC and I am not familiar with them...

Any help or suggestions are greatly appreciated.

try this.

1. First open the steam window and click games

2. now right click on counter strike source and then click properties

3. A window should pop up

4. From here click "Set Launch options"

5. A small window will come up it

Type in -dxlevel 90
seems that valves games arent really dx10 friendly yet. so running them in dx9 mode should help. hope it helps, good luck
