Specs: Windows 7, 16GB
I get low FPS in games, should I upgrade my GPU (Which is a Radeon HD 6950 2GB) or my CPU & Mobo(Intel i7 870 @ 2.93Gz)?

Both CPU and v-card are great for gaming. Do u have this problem in all FPS games?

It doesn't look like the Video Card or the Processor is the problem. Have you run a virus scan on your computer? What games are you playing?

Well I mean I can play Garry's Mod and other Valve games without any lag but I can't play BF3 or Planetside 2 on the lowest settings without lag.

If you have an i7 CPU, HD 6950, & 16GB RAM, hardware is NOT your problem.

"I have tried reinstalling windows?"

That doesn't tell us much. I assume it's the 64-bit version? & you're installing the latest drivers for all your devices plus running Windows update? & when you install your games you're also installing any patches that are required? & you're not installing a bunch of additional crapware? which anti-virus are you using?

What type of HDD do you have, mechanical, SSD, or both? If it's mechanical, what's the capacity & how is it partitioned? Also, have you checked the CPU temp to make sure it isn't overheating? max temp = 72.7C

Could a super slow HDD be the issue?

What is the HDD that ur using ? download speedfan and gpu-z check ur hardware temps.
The temps for gpu should not exceed 55 at idle or 80 at gaming although the gpu can handle 90 but its safer to keep it at below 90.
do u have the latest drivers installed? what power supply are u using ?

computers are a second home
NVIDIA GeForce

"Could a super slow HDD be the issue?"

You didn't tell us anything about your HDD. If you're not going to answer our questions or provide any additional info when asked, you're wasting our time as well as your own.

Well you asked what my HDD was so I was just wondering if a super slow HDD could be the issue. My harddrive is VERY VERY slow.
