  1. What is you graphics card & how low is the fps you experience (in numbers please like 15, 20, etc)?
  2. start by opening the case and seeing if your pc has a lot of dust and that the fans are working...heat will cause the system to over heat and slow down. i would then see if you have some bad ram by running memtest. you can also run seatools or wd tools to check your hard drive. video cards when they start to fail will show weird colors on screen or no video.
  3. experiencing with low FPS isn't card failure sign, you have to list your specs? Included psu and OS?
  4. Here are my specs

    Graphics card: Evga GeForce GTX 550ti
    Motherboard: Asus M5A88V-EVO
    Ram: Corsair Vengeance (2X4)
    PSU: NZXT Hale-90 80plus gold
    OS: Windows 7 (64 bit)

    i am getting about 50-30 FPS minecraft and 10-20 FPS battlefield 3
    would this be a graphics card issue?

    My system also Freezes quite often doing anything stays frozen for a minute of 2 then goes back as if nothing happened. if anyone knows the problem to this issue please tell me. i tried a brand new windows install with no result.
