that is not low. Your eyes can't even see 200 frames per second, not even close actually. More along the lines of 80. If you insist upon seeing huge FPS numbers then drop your settings. You can of course drop a ton of money into a huge power supply, but thermaltake is a good brand and assuming the voltages are okay, 550 is good enough to run what you have.

That psu is more than sufficient for that set up.

I don't really see what the problem is. The human eye can't see more than 60FPS, and once you get 30 or more FPS, the game should play smoothly. The 4870 is a powerful card, but with all settings maxed out on a game such as COD4, I don't think it would be able to get 200FPS.

What is your screen resolution? Maybe you're running at a much higher resolution than other people. This could affect your fps quite a bit too.
