Default Issues with FPS (yes another one of 'those' threads :P)

Ok well basically, this is how the story went. Back before the big graphics overhaul (was that 1.31? I don't even remember), I was playing WW2OL on a crappy little desktop PC with some ancient ATI card, etc. For 1.31 (and due to the fact that afore-mentioned computer was dying) I bought this new computer. Lately, I've been noticing that my FPS is lower than what other people experience on setups similar to mine, however I'm far from computer-savvy so aside from looking at some other threads and experimenting, I haven't been able to come up with much. It was suggested for someone in another topic to make their own thread, so I've decided to do that for my rig. Here's the basic stats:
  • OS Name Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium (64 bit)
  • Processor AMD Athlon(tm) II X4 630 Processor, 2800 Mhz, 4 Core(s), 4 Logical Processor(s)
  • Total Physical Memory 4.00 GB
  • Memory card: Name ATI Radeon HD 5670
    Adapter RAM 1.00 GB (1,073,741,824 bytes)
    Driver Version 8.961.0.0
    Resolution 1600 x 900 x 60 hertz
    Bits/Pixel 32
With WW2OL settings set at "best performance" and ATI AMD settings set at almost completely minimums:
Benchremagen: 40
Benchvehicles: 20
Benchantwerp: 34
Here's my AMD ATI settings atm:



2nd pic (sorry if these are weird):


In city battles (P1's and such) I generally get down to 20 or less with HUD on, but i've grown accustomed to playing with HUD off because of the increased FPS from it (lol). In bigger battles it can get down to 15 or less with HUD off, and while that isn't at all disastrous (comparatively), I've just been getting the feeling that it should be running a bit smoother.

Any helpful comments or tips are highly appreciated

If you need more info, just let me know, thanks

Also, I would highly appreciate some advice on overlclocking CPU and whatnot... a lot of people seem to do that with little trouble, so I'd like to give it a try (AMD controls have an overclocking option, but I don't know how much I can do without damaging something).

-You could try updating drivers first.
-Make sure you have latest motherbord drivers installed from the website

Eliminating the Competition
This is pretty simple:
1) Disable as many applications as possible.
2) Do a thorough security scan (because it couldn't hurt).

Game Preferences
Go to Settings and select Best Performance. That will change a lot of settings. But double check a few before saving the change.
Under Video -> Infantry, set Level of Detail as low as it will go.
Under connection, set Visible Player Limit to Low.
Drop the number of Corpses and Duration to the minimum on those sliders.
SAVE CHANGES
RESTART

According to this you should be able to OC your CPU http://www.legitreviews.com/article/1073/3/

That should get you more FPS in towns
Just do a google search on overclocking that cpu
