What made you think a higher wattage powersupply would increase your frames per second?

What settings are you running the games in?


Still 128 bots in BF2? if so no wonder it lags.


NO one can run that.

Either way you probably needed a psu upgrade. Make sure you have the latest drivers and not the ones that came with the video card.
