Before I answer, I need to know the following information-

-what are the specs of your rig?

-Have you recently installed a new driver for your graphic card?

-are you running more applications on the background?

hmm that sounds kind of weird, The fps usually drops when you run some resource consuming applications on your background.

The only advice I can give you now is-

Uninstall and then reinstall the gpu driver.
Then if the problem still exists, then try to roll back to the older driver.

p.s My gtx 580 is rendering 2-3 less fps after I installed the latest 300.42 drivers. Maybe your problem is somehow related to mine?

Like said, try rolling back to a previous driver, like the 296.10 or 295.73.

i figured out that it only happens if my computer is on for more than a day and if i turn it off it works again
