Minecraft FPS Drop [1.7.4]

Hi,

So... basically I have had my gaming pc for around two months now and I start off by getting 800fps average in minecraft on max settings with optifine and the max I have ever gotten on highest settings is 2350fps. About a week or two ago my fps dropped and averaged around 200-400fps, I know I will get people saying "you only really need 60fps" and things like that which I can understand but I payed lots of money for this build.

PC SPECS:
CPU: i7 4770k
GPU: GeForce GTX 780ti
RAM: 16GB GSkillz Ripjaws
PSU: 750W CORSAIR 750M Bronze

I think it may be my graphics card as I failed to download the latest driver and I had to do it manually.

Any ideas?

Other's are having problems with 780ti's and Minecraft,
It's a driver issue from Nvidia!

Thanks, that's a relief I thought there was a problem with my PC!

I even reset it the other day and it didn't solve the problem, at least now I know why.

It did seem to happen when I updated my driver.

Are NVIDIA trying to fix this?

They will be, Minecraft is a very popular game so Nvidia won't want people going AMD becuase of this.

An i7 on integrated graphics can lock 60fps in minecraft. I don't know why you need 200fps or even 800fps for that matter. Do you play V-sync'd to 60fps? Do you have a 120hz monitor? Why play at more than 60fps when the human eye cannot see the difference?

As I said I know that 60fps is playable. But wouldn't you be concerned if your fps went down by 1000?

I don't see why people always say "you don't need that much fps" and things like that.

Thanks for your input though.

I never play minecraft at more than 60fps due to screen tearing and things like that. Same with other games. I do see your concern. If this is a driver issue you can test this easily by rolling back to the previous driver. If this fixes the problem, then it is the driver. If not, then it is something else.

I think it is a driver problem.

Thanks for everyone's help.
