Lately, every game...and I mean every game...is getting 20-30 FPS. Even Morrowind, an ancient game, is getting only 30-40 FPS. World of Warcraft is getting 20-30 FPS and that MMO should be easy as eating pie as a fat kid to run. Skyrim is also getting 20-25 FPS. Can't play DayZ too low FPS...every game is getting very low FPS. Even mount and blade is getting 20-30 FPS and drops to 15 FPS.
Before I go into my PC specs...
I ran a CPU stress test, and that did fine
Ran ram tests and that is fine
Hard drive is fine
Power was good, so power supply is fine on all the tests
Finally did a GPU stress test, and it crashed when it was being stressed. Shaders crashed, and like it does for every game I play...when its under heavy load (like Skyrim or DayZ) my monitor will go black and display drivers crash. But no matter what version drivers I get, this happens. And GPU crashed during the stress test.
Before I go out to buy a new GPU...does that sound like a GPU issue? Since it crashed under the stress test? Or could other things cause that? Power was good like I said, and CPU was fine under stress.
Geforce GTX 660 2GB (factory superclocked)
i5 660 3.3 GHz CPU
Windows 7 64bit
8 gig DDR 3 ram
If I do need to replace my GPU, I'm going to get a regular non-overclocked one. They last a lot longer. I bought my 660 in december 2013...so that is a pretty short lifespan.
