it seems like you have 2 extra amps than you actually need to run the card.
though this only has a 20pin instead of the 24pin most PSU has nowadays.

If you get a new PSU, try to get one with 2 PCI-E connectors.

it either seems like theres something wrong with your computer (hardware or software) or that something is bottlenecking.
do you have a friend that has a good PSU?

What settings are you running in COD4? I run everything maxed @ 1440x900 and run in the upper 100s to 200s. Only thing I turn off is smoke edge smoothing, it's a stupid addition and will kill performance of any card.

Do you have more than one PCIE slot on your motherboard? Try a different slot.

There could just be something wrong with the card. Call the company up or RMA it!

No. Performance is not affected by a bad card. You would visually see errors if the card was bad. Know stuff before you say stuff.
