FPS drop in multiple games

Hello All,

I used to own a Radeon HD 4670 graphics card in my old build and I noticed if I left my pc on for about 3 - 4 days my frame rate would become unplayable. For the first few days you will get a constant steady fps (League of legends 100+ steady, Soldier Front 32 fps steady), but after you leave your pc on for 3-4 days without turning it off I notice my framerates are cut in half until I restart my pc. I thought this problem would get fixed by building a new pc but it is occurring in the exact same fashion once again.

Things to note:

My graphics were not overclocked and are a steady temperate. (50C)
My CPU is not overclocked and also NEVER gets hot. (Max Temp 70C)

I'm wondering if this is normal to experience fps loss / droppage if you do not turn your pc off after a few days. If someone could please give me some feedback on this it would be greatly appreciated.

You've got quite the list of hardware specs, but I'd be more interested in seeing a list of background processes and services. Perhaps you have a memory leak in something, or some other software issue.

Leave it on a few days, and when it starts to get bad, check out the resources used by various services (task manager shows this, and there are other methods of checking). If something is using an inordinate amount of memory or has huge CPU usage, disable it and see if the problem goes away. (You can disable it from msconfig or from services.msc, though again there are other methods of disabling it- like the options in the affected program itself.)

You can also check your GPU usage in-game with programs like Afterburner or EVGA Precision; pick one of them or another similar program, then see what your system is like on a normal day while playing games. Then check it when your FPS drops; see if the GPU also experiences problems.
