Okay, well ever since I've had this computer I built, it's occasionally been getting super high fps, but most of the time it's low.
CPU = AMD Phenom II X4 - 3.2ghz
GPU = GTX 460 1GB
RAM = 8GB
PSU = 575W
MOBO = Biostar A880GZ (not the best)
So I'll be playing something like Skyrim or SR3, and whenever I turn on my computer, it pretty much determines if I'm gonna have bad FPS or good FPS. When it's good, I can run Skyrim maxed out, 50+fps, and SR3 Maxed out 45+FPS. If it's bad, it'll be around 10-20 for SR3, and 15-25 in Skyrim.
I asked my friend what he thought it was, and he said it was the GPU (which has a warranty), HOWEVER, I traded GPU's with a friend which was a little better than mine, and his only ran it 2 fps faster (but I was still getting the lower fps).
So... any suggestions? I believe I have a warranty on my CPU, if that's the problem. Thanks
