Huge FPS drops

Hello everyone.

For some time now i have experienced huge fps drops... I used to be able to run multiple games at maximum settings at the same time with over 250 fps, but now i can run 1 or 2 games with normal fps (if they are old games like NFSU 2) newer games i run in maximum settings but i get huge fps drops, i can play with high FPS for some time and then it drops to 15-20 fps for a few seconds, and then back up and back down and so on.. Any suggestions?

  1. Hi, I'll try to help you butI need more information -
    Ram brand and model number?

    I think it could be that your PSU is under powered, the older games don't require as much speed or performance as do more recent games. You would need at least 600 watt PSU.

    Even if your PSU is providing adequate power for all components, the PSU might be a brand that adjusts its own voltages during idle times to conserve power then as soon as you mouse move it jumps into action, you would hear the fan rev up and down during those times.

    I'm not sure what 954mhz ram would be, it looks like it is either the wrong capacity or voltage for your motherboard or is overclocked in some way or that one stick is corrupted.
