Getting Low Framerates After a Few Minutes in Games


Recommended Posts

Hey, I'm having a problem.


After 5-15 minutes of playing a game, it all of a sudden gets bad framerates. This happens on even older games like StarCraft.


I don't know what the problem is. It only seems to happen when I am running games, even browser games like RS have the same issue.


Things I've tried:

-Checked my CPU and GPU for overheating. They are not overheating at all.

-Alt-tabbing doesn't work.


But no luck.


Can someone help me? My computer can run games like AoE3 and Empire at War max settings no problem.


My specs:

AMD Athlon 64 3200+ 2.0 GHz Single Core

NVIDIA GeForce 9800 GT

2 GB of RAM

Windows 7 Ultamite (I do not believe it is my OS, as Windows XP had the same issue)

First thing that comes to mind is your Ram - it looks like the worst thing there. It wouldn't hurt at all to pick up another 1gb.


If this has only just started happening though, I don't really know what the cause might be. Have you looked at your task lisk to see how much cpu/memory the processes are using?

I noticed that when the slowdown starts happening, the CPU usage shoots up to 100% and the memory usage goes down.

All the processes CPU usage is the same, from when I start the game to when the game starts slowing down. It's really weird.
