What is you graphics card & how low is the fps you experience (in numbers please like 15, 20, etc)?

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.

What kind of games do you have low fps in? Also does it happen with all games? Did you update your drivers?
