Im seem to be having trouble running 3D games lately because every time I try to play one, the first 3 minutes I am playing but then the game freezes and I can still hear audio but the screen is stuck. I have already tested my friends 7600gt and installed his drivers but still, the same thing happens shortly after I enter a game. I was playing the game FEAR and a year ago when I had the same system I got usually around 40 fps with the 7600gt. Now when I get in it gets around 30 and sometimes dips below 15. The strange thing though is with the video stress test, everything runs flawlessly as it did a year ago but then in the game it all goes down the drain and the screen crashes. I have directx 9 all up to date and have the latest drivers for my video card. For some reason I don't think the problem lies with video card or my friends card. I was wondering if someone could walk me through steps I need to take in order to fix this problem. Thank you.
