Good hardware, low FPS

  1. Hi, I purchased my computer a few months ago and have upgrades it twice with a new video card and power supply, everything runs amazing, Skyrim, Battlefield 3, Max Payne 3, L.A. Noire, Rage, Witcher 2, Mass Effect 3, Crysis 2, Civ 5, Arkham City and more ALL 60 FPS at a beautiful 1920x1080, yet darkness 2, warhammer space marine, Deus ex human revolution and saints row the third all hover at about 20 fps no matter the settings, just really frustrating that my gaming pc I have al least $1000 into already cant run a few, less hardware intensive games. I have all current drivers installed, so I'm literally at wits end here. Here are my specs:

    Please can anyone help? I don't mind spending the money to upgrade my hard drive if that's the problem, 500GB isn't enough for me anyway cause I'm thinking it's a memory problem but I don't know for sure, can't find much info on this.

    Are the games that are giving you issue online or single player?
