    My games ( Assassin's Creed IV, Memento Mori 2, Sniper Elite 3, etc ) are running very slowly ( in drips and drabs ). I reinstalled OS ( Windows 7 ) and the problem persists. This didn't happen before.
    Why does this occur and how can I solve the problem?

    Thanks for your help.

    Hi!
    Write your system? Most likely the problem is the lack of memory, antivirus
    Summer / heat - therefore computer needs cleaning from dust and paste replacement CPU / GPU

    Did you update the graphics card drivers ... windows will install generic drivers which are basic and useless.

    Then use cpu-z to test graphics and compare against card specs ... also hows gpu cooled ... heatsink compound might need replacing, fan clogged.

    PSU ... if you have a fresh unit it might also be worth swapping and seeing if any difference ... sometimes small faults in power being delivered to the system can cause similar issues.

    I updated the graphics card driver.
    I used the following program:

    Everest_Ultimate_5.02.1784b_Portable

    and I read 100% for the speed cooler.

    Can I do more readings from this program to help solving the problem?
    Or must I take the PC to a technician?

    My a PC that happens cooler noise when connecting a second HDD (power supply on lap).
    Download utility SpeedFan and check the temperature of the system.

  6. You might be asking too much from that graphics card.

    What settings do you normally use? High quality?

    The problem is the same independent the quality I use.
    By the way, the same games that worked very well one week ago, are the same that have a bad operation now!

    Have you replaced monitor and or cable the gpu is connected to ... do you have a second monitor to test ?

    Hdmi connection could be an issue according to other forum if its developed a minor fault games will play badly.

    No, I haven't another monitor or cable to do that test.
    But I see movies with VLC Player without any trouble!

    When you reinstall you got curves built-in drivers from Windows. How is running games (via the Internet or disk)?
    And change the port SATA cable.
