but today the fps drops to about 10-15 at any random point during the game (always with 20-30 minutes of play)

iv done 2 things that may case this

1.
i installed new ram this morning 2 1 gig patriot low latency 4-4-4-12 800mhz DDR2 chip and enabled them
in sli ready mode in the mobo bios

iv checked the memoey clocks and timing and everything is as it should be

iv also tried turning the sli ready mode off and that didnt help

i would roll back the driver but i formatted this morning and dont have the previous driver anymore

  1. 99% chance its the drivers; NVIDIA driver support has been poor lately...

    NVIDIA's website should have a button on the driver page that takes you to a list of all previous driver versions.

    I installed the previous driver and it didnt help

    iv also installed speedfan 4.34 and found that my cpu is 56c without the game running

    could a cpu overheat cause the problem
