I recently got a new graphics card(EVGA GeForce GTS 450) and it seemed to be working fine until I went into a video game. I noticed the FPS was quite high, but very quickly it began to drop. The frame-rate drops from 60 to 0 in a matter of minutes, and it happens every time to every game I launch. Could this be a problem with the graphics card?

And before you suggest it, yes, I have the latest drivers.

What are you using to read the frames...Fraps?

and does the game freeze or does it keep running?

The graphics driver crashes and I have to completely restart my computer. I changed my fan speed to 100%, but it still seems to heat up by at least 1C per 5 seconds.

sounds like a faulty card....you can try re seating the card and reinstalling the drivers for it...where did you get the V card?

I ordered the card from Newegg. And I really hope this isn't a faulty card. I've ordered 3 other cards made by EVGA and they've all been faulty in some way. Also, I only have the one PCI-E 2.0 slot, so no re-seating it.

I just measured it's CPU usage, and it goes from 60C idle to 99C in roughly 2 minutes, even with the fan at 100%, then the device crashes. I can see the fan moving, so I know it's not broken.

Understand.....I meant just take the V card out and re seat it in the same slot

You mean the V card goes from 60C to 99C or do you mean the CPU

It a long shot but just making sure it is fully connected pushed into the slot

That seems to have fixed the issue, but I'll post a new topic if something else goes wrong. It seems to idle at 25-30C, and I haven't seen it go above 60C since I rebooted it.
