Wow, just got on to open a thread about this and I see this! So basically, same problem and I just started having it today 1 hour ago. Any game i run starts throttling my GTX 560 at 99% and lags, i checked the timings and everything is correct because i thought i might have set the clocks down which is what i do when im not playing games. Any ideas? Should i just open a new thread? Thanks
check your temp as the poster above said....
check for memory usage / free...
check for background program/bloatware/malware that running...
but it likely temp problems..
high temp will throttle your system, using cooling pads can help...
If the temp are fine, mem is enough, no bloatware/malware and your gpu/cpu usage is nearly 90% or above than it simply means your machine are not strong enough.... lower the detail / upgrade your machine....
Update your drivers if you haven't. My GTX 480 started throttling down to 205 mhz even when i didn't play any games. I think i was using 301.24 and updating to 301.42 solved my problems.

Simplest Fix for me, I simply restarted because i thought my GPU was going down the drain. The restart fixed whatever caused it in the first place. ALL TEMPS were fine, clocks were in their place, and i played the games 2 hours ago on highest so it wasn't bottle necking. And i had no programs running in the background, i don't know and may never know what it was but its gone. Anyway, so try restarting and see if it continues. Good Luck!
