Question about Nvidia GeForce 6600 Graphic Card

1 Answer

Unknown reason for FPS decay - Nvidia GeForce 6600 / 256MB DDR / AGP 8x / DVI / TV-OUT / Video Card Graphic Card

My FPS on my online game has dropped from the mid 20's where it had been for a long time running with decent quality settings, to around 10 fps with the lowest quality settings possible, at the best of times. i've seen it go down to 3 fps for an extended period of time when the game is trying to handle a lot of things.

I've reduced the game's settings to as low as they possibly go, but can't figure out why the FPS has dropped so dramatically. I dont know if I have a temperature issue, or the card is just going bad. I've gone through task manager and killed everything I could to keep memory free (2gb), but the game only really used between 1/2 and 1 gb of ram at a given time.

Any ideas?

Dude. even if it's an issue that your warrenty can handle it's probably the card. chances are your overusing it and it's just gone bad. if you can live off of that card just go pick up an 8400gt or 8600gt. you'll see a dramatic inprovement

    by that i mean you've probably had it for a while and i'm sure you have an old computer at home. go boot it up, if you can play games on it you'll see it isn't performing the way u bought it. but still an 8600 only costs like 50 bucks

The graphic card usually crashes due to over heating. Keep the gpu cool. you may use a pedestal fan as well.
