Okay so I got my GTX 285 back in March and have been satisfied with it but the past few weeks I've been having a problem. FPS loss.

I seem to be lagging in games like San Andreas around alot of cars? I never had this problem before, not when I first had the card or with any cars before.

In Left 4 Dead, Alot of Zombies can even slow down my game ( I noticed turning down the shaders seemed to raise performance a bit)

I don't believe its the GPU but what could it be? I mean a few cars ( I mean like more than 5 ) and I get a FPS drop? It sounds like some sort of RAM issue.

Please help.

Edit: I've also had random BSOD's when I'm doing alot of things are once latley, Again not something I had in the past.

You can find out the BSOD or the crash by accessing the run command and typing 'eventvwr.msc' What RAM and CPU do you have?
