BIG performance problem - 30FPS on 580GTX?

Okay, guys and gals. My specs:

C2D E8500
8GB DDR2 memory
Zotac 580GTX

With everything set at max., no AA I get about 20 to 25 fps. Everything set to low, no AA I get about 35 to 40 fps. Is this expected from my setup? Damn, I can kill BF3 like a flie, but SWTOR? Runs like syrup.CPU bottleneck?

Any tips? Did a fresh W7 install yesterday, noe perf. increase.

EDIT: In the BIG beta weekend I had everything set to max., 16AA. Everything was smooth as slik. But now, syrup.
There's a disturbance in the force, I feel it in my bad hip.

You should be doing much better than that. I am running a 450 and I am pulling off 40-60fps. With similar setting (no shadows though).

You know, I had a similar problem. I know this will sound patronizing, but try updating your drivers again, and if that doesn't work, reinstall them.

It ended up being my drivers that made my ATI Hd Radeon 6950 run below 30fps.

Oh ya, and turn off shadows and bloom if that still doesn't help. I know, you shouldn't have to, but it seems to be a major issue for people who get the problem you're getting.
