How come my FPS drops all of the sudden?

Question by Catnus: How come my FPS drops all of the sudden?
When I play Vindictus or even League of Legends everything would run smoothly, but eventually my FPS drops to, like, 1. On League of Legends it goes from FPS:30 to FPS:2. I don't know what the problem is.

Computer settings:
Windows 7
Home Premium 64-bit.

AMD Athlon II X2 220
dual core processor

3GB DDR3
Memory

DVD-Super Multi
Drive

NVIDIA GeForce 9200
graphics

Multi-in-One
Media Card Reader

The graphics card is the weak point of the rig, if I'm honest. The CPU can be argue as being middle table, the RAM could do with a kick in the pants given the price of DDR3 these days and the fact you are running 64 bit (motherboard dependent, obviously but I'd imagine the max would be 8Gb) but the clear issue is the graphics card. With GPU's you can punch above the weight of the system generally and as long as you stick to system req AMD's have the benefit of being more consistent with the socket types so upgrading in the future is easy enough so getting a graphics card a little higher helps you in the long term.

Basically, get a new graphics card, the one you have is a little past it and/or defective. More RAM never hurts, stops you having issues when something like a virus scan or MSN message or some other alert pops up while playing a game and given you can get good brand named 2Gb DDR3 sticks for £10 and 4Gb for £17 then it can't hurt. The CPU shouldn't be a worry but it's likely on a motherboard fully compatible with all AM3 cpu's and AMD are cheap so you can upgrade that at some point with little hassle.

The rig you have has some excellent upgrade options for a couple of years yet to keep playing the top games at decent settings for pretty much very little money.
