Dying ATI 4890 Tags: Graphics Cards FPS Graphics Last response: May 29, 2010 3:32 PM in Graphics & Displays Share JyncDuncan May 29, 2010 2:21:54 PM I am having problems with my graphics card I think.. I have a Radeon HD 4890 with a Phenom II X4 945 Processor, DDR2 800 8GB PQI Turbo RAM. I've always gotten ATLEAST the max set FPS in Modern Warfare 2 (91) and I've always tested over 300 FPS in Counter Strike source, and all of my graphics drivers are updated. All the sudden for the past 2 days I've been getting under 50 FPS in MW2 and under 180 in Counter Strike source. Is my video card dying?

My only complaint is that it is idling at 51C with the fan turned at 80% which is so loud I can't stand it. It's going up to 80C in game if I leave the fan to be controlled by ATI Catalyst. m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !

Maybe it's the right time to re-apply the thermal paste... m 0 l Can't find your answer ? Ask !
