I wonder why it could be running less than optimally.
Try reinstalling the game? Or reinstall the drivers?

I got the latest drivers yesterday.. and it isn't just BioShock.

I'll try a 3D Mark so I can actually put some numbers out there to compare.

I think your just expecting too much.. it is a GT or a GTO??? if it is a 7900gt... that its that, just turn down some AA or something.... Your computer is in its phase of "just wait it out" then in 4 or 5 months build a whole new rig.
