I am getting major FPS drop / Lag in game ?

Hi I have recently been getting major FPS drop and lag in all of my games , I have tried everything updated graphics card , cleaned out dust , full system scan , cleaned up pc , defrag everything you can try I have basically tried . I have even had someone look at it and he said he could not find anything wrong with it. My specs should be good enough to play most games at the recommended quality and if I put them on high it is major FPS drop. I have no idea what I can do or what else I can try ? Any ideas what is causing this or what I can do to solve this problem ?

I have fibre optic internet so that can't be the problem and I always have one of the best ping in the lobbies.

My specs are -

Processor - intel(R) core(TM) i5--2500k CPU @ 3.3GHz 3.30 GHz
Installed Memory (RAM) - 8.00GB
64 Bit Operating System - Windows 7 Ultimate
System Man - MSI
Model - MSI-7681

Graphics card -
AMD RADEON HD 6800 SERIES
INTEL DAC (400MHZ)
CHIP TYPE - AMD RADEON GRAPHICS PROCESSOR (0x6738)

Thank you to anyone who can help.

Some of the games I play require really low specs like League of Legends and Counterstrike also and I still get lag / fps drop.

just guessing, there's a possibility that your system using intel gpu when you are playing a games, not the 6800 card.

try to disable the intel onboard graphic card, then try play the same game.

Hi, It he card a 6850 or a 6870? Either way it sounds like a hardware problem. Like maybe it's time to upgrade to a newer card. I'm not sure how long you've had the card or but the 6800 series will be 4 years old in October.

In Catalyst Control Center and in your game settings you will see sliders for AA/AF. Also make sure you are multisampling, not super sampling.

You can override if you want, or you can change the settings in the game options while playing.

If this doesn't help some, then we need to look at other avenues of solving your problem.
