I just upgraded from a gtx 550ti to a 750 ti. After I did so I started noticing major fps drops periodically in everything I do. Flash, games, pretty much everything except windows ui. I reinstalled the drivers for the 750 ti And that didn't help. Someone told me that it could be conflicting sound drivers from the nvidia and realtek drivers installed. I disabled the nvidia drivers in device manager and still i have this issue. It's not power, the 750 ti has a low power draw and I'm on a 500 watt psu. My cpu isn't maxing out either. I ran prime95 and memtest and both checked out fine. Any help would be appreciated.

Forgot to mention that the fps drops last for only a second but drop all the way down to 1 usually.

Do you have any anti-virus software running on the computer? I have seen some (norton, mccaffee, and trend micro) all cause short fps drops like that. You might check to see if anything else was installed recently.

 

Did you uninstall the 550 drivers prior to installing the 750 drivers?

I have always let the installer uninstall previous versions of graphics drivers without any problems but maybe I should look into that. No, I don't have any antivirus that is constantly running.

Nvidia's installation tools generally work quite well. I would check to see if any new software has been installed or perhaps check for junkware.

There was no new software between the old card which worked fine and the new one. Someone also told me that it could be my pci-e port, but i don't think that it would work at all if that was the case.

This is a tough one for sure. Intermittent issues can be hard to track. Do you notice anything in task manager when these lags happen? Such as a cpu usage spike, ram usage spike?

Not particularly, i even ended every process that wasn't necessary and it still does this. Is there something that i can use to monitor my hardware and have it be written to a log?

You can use the windows performance monitor: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/cc749249.aspx

speccy might help me determine an issue:

 

  • Go to Piriform's website, and click the big download.png button.
  • Next, click Download from Piriform.com (the FileHippo link requires an extra click). Or if you want to use a portable version of Speccy (which doesn't require installation), click the builds page link and download the portable version.
  • You will now be asked where you want to save the file. The best place to put it is the Desktop, as it will be easy to find later.
  • After the file finishes downloading, you are ready to run Speccy. If you downloaded the installer, simply double-click on it and follow the prompts until installation is complete. If you downloaded the portable version, you will need to unzip it before use. Right-click the ZIP file and click Extract all. Click Next. Open up the extracted folder and double-click on Speccy.
  • Once inside Speccy, it will look similar to this (with your computer's specifications, of course):
    p22004369.gif
  • Now, at the top, click File > Publish Snapshot
  • You will see the following prompt:
    p22004371.gif
  • Click Yes > then Copy to Clipboard
    p22004372.gif
  • Now, once you are back in the forum topic you are posting in, click the p22004370.gif button. Right-click in the empty space of the Reply box and click Paste. Then, click Add Reply below the Reply box.
  • Congrats! You have just posted your specs!

Those specs help to some extent but it would be more useful to have the entire spec report.

 

A lot of Foxcon motherboards were known to have issues, it is possible your pcie lane is the issue. One thing you may want to do is check for blown or bulging capacitors on the motherboard since this was also common examples: https://www.google.com/search?q=blown+or+bulging+capacitors+motherboard&biw=1272&bih=743&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ei=es_4VITRK4-xyAS8jIGgCQ&ved=0CAYQ_AUoAQ

 

Your temps look good. The other question would be the SMART data report from the hard drive which would also be available from the full speccy report.

Capacitors look solid, if it is the mobo I'll be replacing mobo, CPU, ram and HD soon anyway. Just want to know if the graphics card is bad or something.

Gotta love it when that happens! Let us know if it continues. I did not see any obvious hardware issues in speccy.
