HI,
I recently had a problem with my computer. For the past two days its been running slower than usual and and games are very laggy! i could play skyrim, dead island and all those games easily with medium to high settings. Now i have to put it all the way down to low to play them.Also something else i noticed is that the Text and writing In-game is a little blurry(just to put it out there)but the text on google chrome and other programs are fine. It was working fine for about 3 months, but now its slow. :(  Anyone wanna help get rid of this problem?

My specs:
Amd athlon II X3 445 Rana 3.1ghz
Hd radeon 6570
OCZ Modextream 750W
Windows 7 ultimate 64bit
2x4gb memory

Please help! :) 
Thank you,

What are the temps of the video card under stress? If it is getting hot, maybe just a simple cleaning out the dust from your case will help. Are you using the latest drivers?

Could be software updates, I was forced to turn everything but anti virus updates off just for video editing reasons let alone gaming. 60c load isn't bad but if that is idle then you need to do some cleaning.

Have you been doing with your PC something before that happened like changing settings in Catalyst Control Center?
