fps gets lower as game progresses

i have weird problem, when i started the game and the first few levels of game play i had a solid 60fps with v-sync on and runnin at 1680x1050 but now i have lows of 29 and max of 41 ??

drivers are 258.69 geforce beta's and using a gtx275, q6600@ 3.6ghz, 4gb ram and creative xtreme audio sound card

anyone else has similar ?

Yup. I see it too. Starting around 60+fps, and it gradually goes to 40. Or if I have been playing something else like BC2, then start playing Sniper... low FPS.

Sounds like a heat problem. If your GPU gets warm/hot (as it should when you play compared to regular windows activity) and therefor lowers performance to avoid permanent hardware damage.

Are you running an old system (more then a year)? Try open your computer, vacuum clean your fans. Install a software (usually comes with your graphics card) to monitor your temperature, and see if there is anything that can relate your bad fps with GPU temperature.

It really does sounds like a heat problem. Clean your computer with compressed air, then if it doesn't work try adding a fan. They are usually 10$ for a good one, but you need space in your case. If that still doesn't work, try a new case. Last solution is a new CPU Heatsink.

well all is cool enough and max temp on gpu is 91c so not a heat problem really

i am very good at looking after my pc and it is dust bunny free and cpu is cooled by a bolted ocz vendetta 2 and mx-2 paste, case is a coolermaster storm "scout" case with 1 fan at front bottom, 2 at side, 1 back and huge 1 at top towards the back

max cpu temp during games is around 53c ram is @ ddr2 960 but is rated at 1066, really its a game problem and now i've finished the game anyway and other games dont lose random amounts of fps

It's possible if he has liquid cooling.

91C is pretty high. My 470gtx reached that level on default settings when playing Crysis. Now with the MSI Afterburner program I can customize fan speeds according to temperatures and it never goes above 80, although the fans are a little louder.

If your graphic card is getting to 90C then there is a real possibility that it's slowing down due to the heat.

I'm serious... No liquid cooling, playing Crysis on Very High and my Radeon 5850 reach 50c. It have 2 120mm fans blowing on it and a 200mm fan at the bottom blowing in the case, and 2 140mm on the top, an other 200mm on the front and 120mm on the back. I've got a case with good ventilation (Haf 922)

I got to agree, 91C is pretty high. I think my gf275 has a fail safe of 105C to shut down. But I am running about 80C full load.

no my card has been the same since i bought it in april 09, i saw my old 8800gtx go above 100c playing stalker clear sky but it didnt fail and i presume is still working now although it was stolen out of a mates house some months back

anyway not all games make my card that high normally temps are 84c or even 75c for mw2, i cannot stress enough that for me its NOT heat related but i am gonna get some compressed air and blow it through the gpu cooler
