My pc is starting to show high fps drops in games :(. It`s not a driver, fan cleaning problem, i simply want to be able to play games at a higher graphic settings. I noticed that a lot of games nova days require a higher shader capabilities.

Well... for starters i recommend getting an ATI Radeon HD 5670 to replace your NVIDIA.
Same one im using and its working just fine on max graphics, though 4v4 games are a pain to go through.
EDIT: Im saying this because i consulted my big brother about this and he is an expert when it comes to hardware. Im no expert on these kinds of things.
That should tell you all you need to know.

That`s just great. That should keep me busy for a while.
Another bonus question is : A multicore processor(like mine) has its power 2.4ghz combined(all cores sums up to 2.4) or each individual core has the 2.4ghz speed?
How much difference does a video card processor make?
Usually i build my own computer, but now i just want to change one piece of my computer(if and only if it makes a big difference), i`ll buy a new one next year, but until then...
Edit: What should i consider a priority on video cards? It`s processor? Memory? Memory speed?And what is with all the video card technologies like PhysX, CUDA, PureVideoHD, 3D Vision and more? Should i pay a close attention for those?
Basically i know that video card memory is for working with more pixels so basically more memory = greater fluency in higher resolutions. The processor for higher graphics(more polygons for smoother edges) ?
And what does the bandwidth allocation do? The speed at which it communicates with the motherboard or the speed between its processor and its memory? Anything else i should know about it?
