I have a Samsung laptop with an i5 2.50Ghz processor, 8 GB of RAM and a Nvidia GT 520MX 1 GB graphics card. So I've noticed that my graphics card has been pretty slow lately (even though it's crapy to begin with), to the point if I switch to the Intel 300 graphics when running a game it is faster. I don't play a lot of games but it just seems like it used to be a lot faster.
One thing is the laptop gets very hot, to the point you can't touch when I'm playing game is going so I'm wondering if that could of done something. Another thing is I recently put Windows 8 on the computer so I'm not sure if that would slow it down... Anyway, I don't know much about hardware so any help would be greatly appreciated!
