I have had this card for just over a year now and i decided to give my computer a little cleanup. I took the graphics card out and cleaned it with pressurized air and put it back in. i then did the same with most of my parts.

I turn on my pc and install some new Nvidia Drivers and restart. I launch up CS:GO and i am suddenly stuttering very badly.
i am constantly going from 200-40ish frames persecond.
I have tried...
Wiping and Reinstalling Drivers.
Unparking CPU
unplugging the gpu and plugging it back in.
My Power Plan is on High Performance

Is this a problem with my graphics card or maybe my cpu?
Should i get my card replaced as it is still under warranty

Hi and welcome to TSG.

Can you provide the full specs of the machine? Include make and model if it is a prebuilt system like a HP or Dell etc. If it is a self / custom build please provide make and model of the motherboard, CPU, RAM, Power Supply (make, model and wattage) etc. The more information the better.

What exactly is pressurized air? Did you use a can of air or did you use an air compressor?
