How do I fix random fps drops

So for a while now my computer has been experiencing these random fps drops when every I play games on it. It doesn't matter what game I play, the same thing always happens. 10-15 minutes after I start playing the fps suddenly drops to unplayable levels, after about 30 seconds it stops only to happen again about 3 mins later. I tried everything from checking temperature to adding RAM to upgrading my entire system to no avail.

My system spec.
Processor: Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU E6850 @ 3.00GHz 3.00GHz
RAM: 8Gigs
OS: Win7 64-Bit
Graphics Card: Nvidia GeForce 9800 GT

  1. This happened to me too. I had a GTX 660 Ti and it did the exact same thing. It turns out it was a faulty card and I was able to replace it because I had the warranty. It worked fine after that.
  2. It sounds like cost is an issue...

    Give this a shot:

    There are other things it could be, but some people have reported success with it so far.

    If you have lots of files on your C: drive and it's a bit of a mess try PreCacher v1.0.2.0 LE first.
