Is my GPU the issue?


Recently been having issues in game with some series FPS drop in "stress areas". In any PvP with more than a few people and all PvE - all raids seem over whelming for my PC. This has seemed odd as my PC has handled all games no problems for long enough.

I tried up-grading my GPU with little success, so changed the CPU instead. Oddly this brought about lag free gaming for about 30 minutes. These numbers don't mean as much as I hope they'll mean to some of you, but I'm wondering if both CPU and GPU were the issue, CPU is now okay but GPU needs to go back in. Some of those numbers look horribly low. I'm at Uni, so my internet speed isn't a problem. Also my PC runs DX11 and the bench on the DX10 looks low, another reason to wonder if my GPU is on it's way out.

Mobo - ASUS M5A97 PRO
CPU - AMD Phenom II X4 965
GPU - AMD Radeon HD 6700 Series
RAM - 16.0 GB Single-Channel DDR3 @ 802MHz
Game being booted off my OCZ 120GB SSD - 112GB OCZ-AGILITY3 ATA Device (SSD)


- GPU 2D

- GPU 3D



- RAM Overview

I have also updated O/S, Bios, memory cleaners etc and new drivers. Really running out of ideas!

Thanks guys.
