I got a Gateway FX laptop, has a Intel P8400 2.26ghz CPU and Nividia 9800M GTS. It used to do just fine, kept all the settings at lowest, view distance at fair enabled partcle effects. Like that in a 25m raid Inever noticed any FPS issues. Two weeks ago tho it all of a sudden got bad, now I am running at 20 FPS just standing there in a 25m, gets a little worse when the fighting starts and then when everyone gorups up in one spot I am starting to freeze up.
So I got two questions.
1. Might have I hurt the CPU or graohics card by letting it get to hot or something, and if so how would I check to see that?
2. For a moderate price like 300 bucks or less could I upgrade anything to see a signfigant performance boost?
