    Are you using updated graphic drivers? This is usually the case with a lot of people. What are your temps like? Did you overclock your card or processor at all? What sort of settings are you trying to play your games on? A GTX 680 should handle most games perfectly fine. But, you never know. Are you running any other programs while trying to game?

    Download the latest driver from: http://goo.gl/nCkxcv. Chose the "Custom Install" and check the box that states "Clean Install".

    If that doesnt help, run an internet speedtest here and press share once the test completes and then paste the link here.
