My build is being extremely slow

Hi, I have a q9650, Asus P5Q3, gtx 550 Ti, 6GB OCZ 1333Mhz, Seagate 160GB sata 2(with windows on it), Seagate 160GB sata 2(with all my games on it), WD 250GB sata 1(what I had planned on recording on). I cannot play anything other that Killing Floor and CoD WaW while recording (out of all the games that I have). I should be able to play BF3 on Ultra correct? I have to play it on low even while not recording. I am not sure what my bottleneck is! I have my CPU overclocked to 3.5Ghz, my GPU memory to 2300Mhz, and my shader/clock speed to 1000Mhz. I have tried recording to all 3 different drives, still pretty much unplayable with like 20 fps. I have tried Fraps, and Bandicam. Not sure what else to do, if someone could please help that would be awesome! Thanks P.S- I REALLY want to be able to record DayZ, that's the main game I want to play. Should I even look into trying to buy little upgrades or just start a fund and buy this: http://pcpartpicker.com/p/3Qlop ??? thanks again

  1. You need a much better card, my friend has a 660 and he can't even run it on anything other than low.

    Although his card is on the slower side, recording is affected by the CPU much more and also the speed of the hard drive. Your whole system is outdated and you will need to upgrade pretty much the whole PC. SSD will help a lot when recording on it.
