Hello!

The title sums it up...

A. I came back just recently PS2, and to my surprise, the game quality had gotten worse.
B. I went from High Quality settings to limping along on Low Quality. Still have FPS problems in close combat.
C. I have not really played since winter 2013. Is there anything I should know about my video card? I still seem to generously meet the Minimum Requirements.

Any help would be appreciated. I will double-search the forums for advice. Thanks!

My setup:

* Windows 7 Pro SP1
* CPU: Intel i7 @ 3.4 GHz
* RAM: 8 GB
* GPU: NVIDIA GT 640 (4 GB)
** uncertain of my current screen rez
* PSU (power supply): 460 watts* (max 18 amps on my 12 volt rail)
** *the reason I mention the power supply is that newer NVIDIA cards demand more wattage... it really limits my upgrade capability using my existing case.
