I have this weird problem - when I play games, they play well for some time, then randomly the FPS drops to 3-5 or so.
I'm now running Win7, but it did the same thing on Vista.
NVIDIA GeForce 9500 GT (512 MB)
AMD Athlon 7850 dualcore, 2776 MHz
Motherboard chipset Nvidia geforce 8100, AMD K10

Which games are you playing?

Maybe you have a antivirus that scans your running programs and slows it down for a bit. Try disabling your antivirus and see if that's the issue.
If not, are you playing FPS online, or offline?

Could be several things; background programs could be the cause, or even low RAM. How much RAM does your rig have? Also, check temps, just in case....
