Hello, just recently I have started to get lag and crashing on some games. It doesn't make sense because a few days ago I was able to run everything on the highest settings. My specs are:
Core i7-2600 3.40 ghz HD radeon 6850 1GB 8Gb Ram 650W power supply 6 Fans Windows home premium 64bit
I don't think my graphics card is dying simply because it can still run lower end games. i did move it recently but i checked and everything seems secure. nothing is too hot temperature wise and everything except games is running fine. Although I can run low end games there was an fps drop in them. Something weird that i noticed is that in the windows experience index the numbers have changed from: Graphics: 7.6 Gaming Graphics: 7.6 to Graphics: 5.5 Gaming Graphics: 6.0
I have already run defragment, updated drivers, updated windows and ran a scan. I even tried system recovery and i still had the same problem.
More aboutgraphics slowed down
I have also had the same system for a bit over a year and never had any troubles with games
