A month ago, my games have started to dip in FPS sporadically.

I have a Duo Core processor, Geforce 8600 GT, 1GB RAM, and have my VRAM on my secondary harddive. I've defragged my computer many times, and tried uninstalling CachemanXP (It actually got worse, so I reinstalled it) This happens on ALL games on the computer, regardless if it's graphic intensive or not. Before a month ago, I had great FPS on all games, so I'm not sure what happened.

EDIT: My GFX driver is updated, and minimal processes and services on, by the way

Please assist me, it's ruining my gaming enjoyment :thumbsup:

Your memory could have gone bad; You may need a new video card. Or...your computer is upset due to you looking at inappropriate content...lol, just kidding. Check out those two things, if the problem persists let me know, my friend CK could probably tell you exactly what to do.

Life is like taking a ride on the road. You really can't stop in the middle of it to check a map, doing so might cause you to take unnecessary risks. Just keep up with what's going on around you and have fun in life.

cacheman made a lot of sense with W95, less with W98 and none with windows xp

try to set your minimum swap file to a gig and max unlimited

if the secondary hard drive is sharing a cable/controller with the system drive that hurts performance

try to free up system resources/real memory with your OS/resident programs first

deleting the swap file and rebooting and reseting it will help with fragmentation

leaving a small swap file on the system drive will also help

with graphics drivers it's best to clean them up totally and reinstall the latest version

No. Try not. Do... or do not. There is no try.
