I'll post a couple screens for the heck of it. I'm using SuperSample 2xAA and I have textures on High, not Highest. In the shot of combat at was at 19 FPS at that moment, in the shoot of the Normandy I was at 23 FPS.
Yeah it seems for sure that your CPU is holding you back a bit. I am running the same settings but with the Textures on Ultra High and my FPS is quite a bit higher in those same places.
Thanks for checking it out for me though as I was curious about your CPU.
