I just finished building my PC with a friend about 3 days ago, everything runs great, but i have come to notice that my CPU usage during Battlefield 3 (ultra settings)is always around 90-95% while playing, then when I quit the game it stays around 25% even after I close out of Origin. Typically my CPU usage would stay around 1-5% when idle, but now it stays around 25 the entire time. Im hesitant about using task manager because I dont want to close out of something important and make things worse for me, but there are a decent amount of programs running in the background, is there any way I can safely get my CPU usage back down? Or is this just how it is supposed to be?
ALSO, While playing games like TF2, BF3, Crysis Warhead, I get the edges of the screen cut off for some reason. I am playing on 1080p resolution with a native 1080p display (52' Sony Bravia XBR9 240hz TV using HDMI)and I cant find a way to adjust the screen for the life of me. I have gone into the NVidia control panel and adjusting settings but nothing works. When im on my desktop everything is fit to screen and perfect, but when im playing a game on fullscreen 1080p the edges are cut off. I have also downloaded the latest drivers, and even re-installed the video card from scratch just to make sure.
Anyway, thank you for taking the time to read this, any advice or suggestions are much appreciated, I just want to make sure I get the best possible performance.
