Default GTX 690 Fps Problems

I just recently bought an Asus GTX 690 to replace my 6950(x2) crossfire. Everything seemed to work fine with the driver uninstall and the transfer to Nvidia drivers. But I have been having one major problem since I've switched. It really doesn't seem that my fps in games has increased at all. In some cases my fps in games is even lower!

The main concern is my low fps in Guild Wars 2 and Counter Strike:Global Offensive. I average around 125-250 Fps with everything high and AA turned off. This is playable but compared to my friend that runs a 580 and gets constant 250-299(fps max is at 300) there has to be something wrong.

GW2 on the other hand can get as low as 20 fps. I Average around 60 but again. There are cases of people running a single 670 and getting constant 130 fps. I switched to the 304.79 beta Drivers because it increased fps a little for GW2. Note the driver switch did not affect any other games that I have noticed.

When I switched from AMD to Nvidia I did a full driver wipe and reinstalled windows 7.

GPU: Asus GTX 690
CPU: intel 2700k (Sandy bridge) OC'd to 4.5 GHrz
Mobo: Asus P8Z68-V PRO/GEN3
Memory: 12gb duel channel
PSU: Corsair TX850W

Any help or insight on this matter would be greatly appreciated.

[EDIT]: IN CS:GO I commonly crash after about 10 minutes of playing. I have to hard reset in order to fix the crash.
