Hello. Recently, I've been getting a lot of FPS lag(drops from 60 to around 45), and it makes my game extremely choppy and unbearable. All of my system components are new except for the graphics card, which is a Nvidia GTX 560.
You should say what games you are playing, what resolution and settings, and what kind of power supply you have. It's possible you are just playing fairly demanding games and less than optimal performance is normal.
Is the GTX 560 a Ti model? If not then yes a GTX 560 isn't anything more than highly overclocked GTX 460 then you shouldn't expect miracles from it. If hovewer it is a Ti model then I believe it shouldn't be getting below 50 on any modern game especially on a res of 1680x1050, unless of course the usual suspects (metro 2033, Crysis)
im playing lol with my ofice desktop, its a pentium dual core 2.0ghz and its IGP just can run 30fps at 1024x720 res... Even with my personal rig (signature spec) at 1600x900 im getting over 100 fps with everything maxed up... that is not a demanding game, start looking for drivers updates, maybe a check of your PSU when its stresed the power could fail...
@ CBag - Clean windows installed, Drivers are up-to-date.
@ DamZe - GPU/CPU both hover around 110 Fahrenheit.
@ Rsktek - This is happening with MW3, also, unless I lower graphics to the point that they suck really badly.
Hopefully it's just the GPU, I've been meaning to get a 670 for a little while.
