hello their i have brought a new system about 3 months ago and it was running fine but all of a sudden i starts jerking when playing games my system is a amd x2 6000+, asus m2n4 sli motherboard, 4gb ddr ram, nvidia 8600 gt, 1000watt psu etc it should be able to play anything i think but my fps are only reaching 60 max what do u think it could be any ideas?

Try System Restore to a Older Date

Have you tried defragging the system?

Windows Updates may be the Culprit

Are the games larger than 64MB? Windows will not recognise fragments larger than 64MB so the files may be spread widely. Try downloading a better fragmenter..

if not, maybe a faulty connection in graphics card (this led to under 15fps in my new vista computer with Nvidia 8600GT)

ive done system restor but cant restor it back to when the system first started doin it i have all the latest drivers etc but i havent tried takein the card out and reincerting it ill try that and get back to u guys if all else fails wipe the machine and start again?

Is the game dx10? If so 8600 is not so may cause slow fps

As the machine is only 3 months old, I guess it's still under warranty. Be careful that anything you do doesn't invalidate that warranty. Even better, get the supplier to fix it?
