I've got the same cpu and vid card as you, overclocking your cpu and vid card should help a lot.

Yeah, my average was almost the same, 46, but my min was 29 I think.

It was action scene...

Here are my CPU settings, anyone want to suggest an overclock? I already set my fans to turbo... Q9550 on an Asus P5Q Turbo.

I'd run 3dmark and see what you get. I always use it just to see if my card is getting roughly the score it should get.

I downloaded 3DMark and will report back... it seems to require registration which I don't feel like doing right now.

Ends up my mobo has a turbo overclock function which upped me to 3.1Ghz automatically... loaded up Ghostbusters to compare and I got 2fps more, which is nothing really, and the audio in the cinematics was suddenly screwed up. Turned off the overclock, audio is normal, lost 2fps.

Not worth it.
