I recently purchased a new Gigabyte GeForce GTX 960 WFOC 2GB to replace my old GTX 560 Ti. However now that I have tried it in a few games (R.U.S.E, GTA V, Rocket League) I'm experiencing very bad performance/quality. In the case of R.U.S.E(2010 game) and Rocket League I've even had to lower the graphics from the settings that were set for my old gpu. 
Things I've tried so far is to upgrade my motherboards bios to latest version, move a ram card so that they are now both on blue spots(In case it was a ram issue, heard they should be faster that way).
I've also downloaded several monitoring tools. So far only used in rocket league , where I get a 60-70% gpu load in the menu, and can get up to 80-100% load while in game with what I think is low-mid graphics. The CPU cores while in game are between 20-60% load, with the 4th being the one thats always under the most load it seems. Temperature wise all components look fine (according to speccy) with the gpu being MAX ~55 C ingame.
I've also deleted old drivers and installed new ones. All other drivers should be up to date as well.
I really don't know what's wrong. Is it perhaps a bottleneck issue, card damaged or incorrectly installed? Should also mention that I'm no expert, this has been the first PC that I've built.
I could add more info/details if needed, and thanks for any help in advance

Changed the GPU Clock to "OC" using gigabytes own tool. Performance got slightly better but still nowhere near where it should be :S Any ideas anyone?
