Frame Rate Periodic Drop

  Woodmouse 18 20:09 23 Mar 2009

Running Vista, Home Premium, Intel Core 2 Duo CPU 2.66GHz, Nvidia GeForce 8600 GT, 4Gb Ram 32-Bit Operating System. I am now experiencing a sudden drop in frame rates on my games (Including FSX and X-Plane). This happens after about 2-3 minutes of flying and lasts for about 3 min, then runs perfectly OK for about 30 seconds, and then drops again. This repeats continuosly. I have defragged, and checked for viruses, installed the latest driver for the graphics card. Does anyone have any idea what could be happening to my computer please, and what direction I should be looking.

try lowering the in game settings detail from whatever you have, if its on high go to medium etc, this will put less strain on the card and increase framerate. or get a better card.
