Framerate issues with MSI GTX 660 TI PE

Hello everyone,

I recently purchased parts for a custom desktop and had it built succesfully. The Msi Geforce GTX 660ti Power Edition graphics card came with a free copy of Assassins Creed 3, which I've downloaded and played. My issue with this card is that within five to twenty-five minutes of gaming, the gameplay starts to lag, stutter, and noticable decrease in framerates start to appear. I've tested out another game called Day Z, and it did the exact same thing.

What I am assuming is that the fact I have a 1600X900 resolution native monitor that is affecting the cpu and gpu, causing bottleneck. Or driver issues that have to resolved within Nvidia support. If you have any suggestions or possible support, please reply soon as possible. I will be displaying a list of my specs.

Thanks

In the NVIDIA settings you can change the "power management mode" to "Prefer maximum performance" That fixed it for me, hope this helps man :D

I am having the exact same issue! I've noticed this happen to me while in the middle of a csgo match (usually about a half hour in). I'll test out your fix skullshad and get back to this thread.

Edit: Unfortunately this didn't seem to fix my issue. Does anyone else have any ideas?
