My fps keeps having a slowdown. The first few mins my FPS stays around 200-300, then later it goes 70-300 ish. Can someone tell me how to get a stable FPS. I've been thinking it's my video card or driver or something. Or something else....

Hi monoxidez, do you have an option to enable V-Sync? This should keep things stable.

Don't enable V-sync.
Unstable FPS is perfectly normal, some parts in games simply will be more intense then others. When you hit these intense scenes, it requires more processing power to render the information resulting in a FPS loss. This is perfectly normal.

Well I understand but, I will get screenlag at around 50-100 FPS. It happens only when I see more than 12 players around me. It's strange. I need to fix it.

It's because when you see more players, your GPU is required to work much harder resulting in a FPS loss. This is a part of gaming and there is no fix.
