I got a new video card but the framerates are exactly the same as my previous 1!

I had a GTS 450 and recently replaced it with a GTX 650 Ti Boost OC. Unfortunately, my computer seems to still act as if the GTS 450 is in my machine as far as framerates in my games go. I don't notice any higher framerates at all. What is wrong?

My computer is a Gateway DX4860. More details of this comp can be seen at this page: http://support.gateway.com/s/desktop/2011/gateway/dx/dx4860/dx4860sp2.shtml

And here are my system specs:

Intel Core i3-2100 processor
Corsair CX750M PSU
Windows 7 64 Bit
6 Gigs of RAM
GeForce GTX 650 Ti Boost OC

And yes, I know about bottlenecking, but I should be seeing SOME increase in FPS. Here's why. In this video, this guy is running Battlefield 4 on a setup very similar to mine (i3 core, GTX 650 Ti), and look how smoothly it's running: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UzSTz24hoG0

Thanks!

Such is your fate.

The user in the video has a better processor. You have a Sandy Bridge i3. He has in Ivy Bridge i3.

His GPU is overclocked from what I can tell in the description.

He also has an extra 2Gb of potentially higher quality RAM (I've personally never heard of Hynix.)

So not a real mystery as to why you aren't achieving what's seen in the video.

the i3 is likely the problem here.

Damn. :(

Do you think my computer BIOS needs to be updated? Could that possibly be causing it?

No. That would 99.9% most likely not help.

You should be able to nab a nice processor for you mobo socket (lga 1155) for a good price during the holidays.

Grab 2 more GB of ram and then rock n roll!

How much would they be you think?

And all I would have to do is just take out the current chip, put the new chip in, and that's it? Wouldn't even have to reinstall Windows or anything?
