So ran several computer cleanup programs (like CCleanup, AVG, defrag'd hard drive) and I'm getting really inconsistent framerates. Games like Smite and LoL barely went under 50 fps yet Smite hit 15 last night and LoL's was all over the place - still above 30 though - so any idea what's going on?

Windows 7 64-bit
6 gigs RAM
i-3 550 at 3.20
Radeon HD 7750

haven't changed a thing but in past month, games with multiplayer have been running pretty poor. Oh and drivers are already updated so it ain't those

I know Smite just started to add in some DX11 features in the graphics settings and I saw a couple posts about people getting bad frame rates when two Nu Wa ults went out at the same time but again it was only a couple posts.

If it is a problem in other games, though, I'd check the task manager to see if anything is eating up your CPU, ram or HDD usage that shouldn't be.

Do you use CHrome?

Easiest thing to do is to back up all your crucial files and do a full system OS reinstall. Generally clears all the bugs right out of the way. I do this about every 18 months or so if my system begins to slow down.

This is a last resort, however, but the most thorough and painless way of getting your PC back to peak performance, on the software end of things.

Opera, did have chrome but that had bunch of processes too.

so found out something: other than Telltale games, anything single player is fine. But any multiplayer games or online only stuff has the fps drops even though I just had a 25 mb/s fiber optic setup installed on Monday so not sure what it is

That's supposed to happen. Chrome compartmentalizes a lot of processes.
