Asus Radeon 7850 1gb Fps Drop

I recently built my first computer with these parts: http://pcpartpicker.com/user/iRobertTM/saved/2e6e

The first week, my build worked amazing, getting up to 200 fps on League of Legends. However, after the first month is when I noticed that I stopped getting these amazing frame rates, and started getting 40-70 fps... I have no idea what caused this; I was hoping someone from the forums could let me know what might be causing this and if there is a possible solution. I read that the Radeon 7800 series was underclocked because Amd knew people would be overclocking, so I overclocked to 1020mhz from the stock 860mhz core clock, but left the memory clock at the stock 1200mhz. This didn't affect my ingame fps at all. :/  I will try adjusting the memory clock, to see if that does the trick. Just fyi, I really only care about the fps on League of Legends and Minecraft, most other games 40-70 fps is perfectly fine.

If anyone has any helpful information about my problem, please, please, please, let me know because any help is greatly appreciated!

To know for sure whether this FPS drop is hardware related, you will need to run some other games as benchmarks, and compare your results with other people who have the same hardware. Also, monitor your maximum CPU and GPU temperatures, and run everything at stock clocks. And be sure to check that you don't have anything unnecessary running in the background by opening up task manager and switching to the "processes" tab.

Be absolutely positive that you have experienced FPS drops under near identical circumstances. Also check for driver and game updates.

Maybe you just need to clean out some cobwebs. Try these:
1. Defragment your hard drive.
2. Run a Disk Cleanup.
3. Uninstall any random applications.
4. Make sure that nothing random is opening at startup.
5. Do a virus scan.

If you don't know how to do some of these, I'm sure Google will know :p

I have noticed fps drops in Minecraft as well, though, not so severely. I'm away that League of Legends recently released a patch that has caused many people to drop fps, but I started dropping fps before the patch. If you look at my build at the link I posted above, you can check out my PSU because I'm beginning to think that I need a PSU that can support more watts and amperes according to this link http://forum-en.msi.com/faq/article/power-requirements-.... Do you think this could be the cause for my fps drops? Thank you so much for your feedback, I appreciate it very much.

My computer is literally brand new. None of these are the cause, and I've scanned my computer; no viruses. Thank you for your feedback, though. I really appreciate it!

Download the latest BIOS for your card at the cards website, i had the same issue and i updated the BIOS and the issue disappeared completely.

OK the HD 7850 isn't a pile of shit... after spending a week frustrated trying to resolve constant FPS drops, I have fixed it. You know what I did? I had my Phenom II X6 OCed by 7%, I had my vid card OCed, I had my PCIe bus OCed. I simply turned it all off. I run games better then I ever have before with no FPS drops, solid WIN. IDK if it was a overheating issue with a component, maybe the North/South bridge over heating, CPU over heating causing the drop in FPS or maybe it was because a AMD board funnels all data through the CPU so it was creating a massive bottle neck and backing data processes up but un OCing fixed everything.
