This is my first post and I hope I can get some great help, thanks!



So I've had the 760 in my system for a while, and no problems. But the other day I started up a game and noticed that the frame-rate was awful. The game's optimization was awful so I tried out some other games and the same thing was going on.

I've checked just about everything I know. I've never overclocked the card. I reinstalled drivers several times and even did a fresh install of windows. I monitored the card and at 100% load it doesn't go much above 39c with the fans at around 50%. The clock speed doesn't budge from 324Mhz with 182Mhz memory clock. The power supply is 750w or above (I can check if need be). I don't have a power supply tester, so I tested the 6pin power connector with a voltmeter and they're reading 12v (If this isn't the proper way and there's another way to check please let me know).

So I'm thinking that my card might be going bad, but I haven't seen any artifacts and have no issues with visual bugs or crashes. It runs fine, it just runs a lot slower than it should. Or it could just be something simple that I'm missing and that's what I'm hoping.

First: Welcome to BC.

Please check game and monitor resolutions to ensure they are compatible. Disable V-Sync via .info files.

Try a different monitor....

Update (after uninstalling) all GPU and Sound drivers. Update Direct X and C,C+, C++ etc. installed on the machine.

Uninstall audio drivers when uninstalling video drivers. Install video drivers first (if no updates from website are updated chip-set; as these would be my first installed).

What is this GTX 760 running in and under what operating system?
