Did you just buy it? What resolution are you playing at? What PSU are you using?

Running skyrim at 1920 x 1080 I've had this card for about 1 1/2 years, I cannot tell what kind of PSU im using beside the fact it says AC 230v on it, also I used Catalyst control center to "overdrive" my card from 775mhz>850 and 1000mhz memory clock > 1200mhz

Did you suddenly get crap performance or has it been like this all along?

We will need to know the Wattage rating of your PSU to what card it is able to power.

You'll have to open the case to look at the sticker on it. Also notice how many Amperes the +12V rail has.

Also, your budget.
