    Low fps >>ALL OF A SUDDEN<<

    I do not know what drivers i need, but i think i have the ones i should.

    Fill me with whatever you can.

    Thank you very much.

    Welcome to Techspot :wave: ! May I suggest you start a thread in the welcoming to business ;); we need to know your computer specs before we can figure this out. A good program would be this. Just download the file, open it, and then select the cpu-z.exe file and all of your system specs should show up. We need to know the processor speed, and model #; the motherboard would be helpful if you end up upgrading something; and the memory amount and kind (ddr, ddr2, sd...).

    Welcome to TS! :)

    What game/s are you trying to run? You may be pushing your card a bit. Try lowering the resolution, detail, etc.

    Trust me the game me and my buddy are playing (this post is actually made for a buddy of my, it may help me 2) is pretty old.

    So no way his fps should be dropping. It used to be very high for him, now its low. I have a worse computer then him ad i get more fps

    It could be just a general hardware thing, as in some components do not work well.

    Try cleaning out the case

    What game is it? (we need to know)

    Perhaps OC the card

    Might be getting old...

    You might have a driver issue. Update to the latest nVidia drivers. It could also be your psu dying. Check out my guide in the signature below.

    Its a pretty good card,

    the game is really old.

    I have a 6800Gs and get 125 fps

    he has a 7600 or w/e and gets 40,60, drops to 10 sometimes.

    Has he recently changed drivers, if so do a rollback

    Did he activate v. sync (vertical synchronization) by any chance? By doing this, the fps will not surpass the refresh rate of the monitor.

    Can you go into detail on that sync. thing. That might be it cause hes the kinda ***** who would do that lolololol. :)

    Tell me how to check if he did that.

    And can someone tell me which drivers match his?

    Right-click on desktop, NVidia Control Panel (or something along the lines of that), "Quality and Performance Settings", Vertical Sync. Make sure it's off.
    Just go to NVidia and get the latest drivers. ...Here if he uses 32-bit Windows XP or 2000.

    Also, if I'm not mistaken the 7600GS isn't faster than the 6800GS.
