    Lately I have been noticing that my computer has been having periods where the FPS in games and even in performance slows down. Was just wondering where to start looking into this problem or maybe even get a solution considering I am not a very big computer buff and I know that most of the people on this forum are generally good with them.

    My comp
    uter specs are:

    Iten Core i5 CPU 760 @ 2.8GHz
    8.0GB Kingston RAM
    Windows 7 Ultimate 64 Bit
    Seagate Barracuda ST31000524AS 1TB 7200 RPM 32MB Cache SATA 6.0Gb/s 3.5" Internal Hard Drive -Bare Drive
    AMD ATI HD Radeon 6850

    first of all you should get a log on your temperatures, could be throttling due to heat.

    if temps stay o.k., the next step would be to see if all ur drivers are up to date, after that, see if you have installed any and all gamepatches.

    hope this helps..

    12 Silkroad Online Clients, 10 of which are clientless so they only use up 2 3,000 K per client and google chrome and ventrilo is about it. I tried to reinstall the drivers for my gfx card and im still getting the same problem.

    So i downloaded SpeedFan and its telling me that my CPU is the hotest thing in my computer. my HDD, GPU, and AUX aer all running at under 45 degrees C. My CPU when i got a web browser and a game going is at 50 degrees or higher. Is this cause for alarm? should i get more fans in there for my i5?

    seems to be running a little hot on the cpu, ive got an amd 6000+ overclocked to 3.3 and everest says its a 6400+ chip and my cpu is running at 31c.
    my grapic card is an radon hd 6950 and it doesnt get higher than 40c i would say if you can add a fan or two. i have a full size box with lots of room for air to
    cool things down. when it comes to puters cool is better ;)

    Maybe something in background is stealing processor cycles and slowing PC and also heating up processor. :eek:
