Default Slow Frame Rates after comp is on for long time.

After I play bf2 or leave my comp on for a few hours my frame rates start to go way down to the point where it is unplayable is this normal or is something wrong?

Note that i play with everything on high at 1600x1200 60hz

My vid card also reaches temps of 64 degrees Celcius

do you turn your machine off at night ?
Or is it always on ?

That does sound a little weird. Especially with your machine.
Whats the temp like when it starts slowing down ?

Thats not very high compared to some of the other ones i've seen on the web.

Im really unsure at this point what it could be.

How updated are your drivers ?
