I'm a fan to run in any game universe with shotguns at the ready. Home computer bought with the configuration of "mediocre games". At the time of purchase almost all gaming news "flew" on the highest setting. But progress does not stand still, and now Borderland 2 started right. in certain game situations. And I have a question: productivity of what, in fact, not enough? If you suddenly do an upgrade, what to improve? To replace the processor, graphics card? Go to add another in SLI? And CPU will be enough for the new videokaraoke?
What performance monitoring tools are now in demand? Or maybe just to run some 3D Mark, who himself I will tell everything in detail and will paint?
CPU QuadCore Intel Core i5-2300, 2900 MHz (29 x 100)
FRAPS is able to write the logs. And in fact, he usually used. You will get on specific games for specific information. And 3D Mark is the budgies, who do not say.
And in your case it is better to take for example the GTX 760 (SLI is with him namuchalis, get a bunch of artifacts, but still a lot microfreezes, SLI makes sense to use only the TOP solutions), percent in fact must not touch (I have i5-2500, nimble of course, but no game is more than 50% and not to eat, although with the advent of multithreaded rendering start sensitive to handle over 50%, the most recent games, and even then not all), memory can be up to 8-16 gigs and knock out the swap.

In my opinion the graphics in Borderland 2 is pretty simple, I think that the game may partially go into the swap and due to this sometimes podlagivaet. I would have paid attention to the RAM and disk system.

Can. But a good starting point to measure at least CPU usage, memory usage, and iowait in the game.

First of all, add RAM, at least 8GB in Dual Channel, better 16, of course. SSD for games also helps.
Percent have to cope with. After this it remains only video card.

1) About CPU upgrade may not bother.
2) the video Card seems to be too long should be enough. If only the graphics settings are not pushed to some outrageous value.
3) Not quite clear what it means "podlagivaet in some game situations," but there is a suspicion that it not do the same with the video card — can the disk subsystem at the time of loading the level, or just some bug of the game — some games may not work perfectly in principle.
4) You have not specified the version of the OS.

Perhaps an indirect sign of a not powerful enough CPU can be the situation when the increase/decrease of the degree of smoothing (from full off to maximum 16-32-fold smoothing) on the performance of the game does not affect and change the other graphic settings and/or parallel operation of other programs, the graphics card is not involving affected significantly.
For example, in the case of the game GRID 2 on PC with Core i3-2100T in conjunction with the GTX 650 Ti Boost at maximum (Ultra) quality settings, the bottleneck is clearly the CPU.
