    Check your background processes to see if you have any programs or unwanted spyware that may be causing your FPS lag.

    What is TF2?

    Also changing drivers or just using different ones always seems to help.

    if you haven't already done so, you may want to try updating Directx to the latest version which was released this month, MS dont put it on the windows update service you have to go get it from their website yourself. it Usually solves issues.
