I decided to game a little on the 9800GX2 I have for folding. I stopped the folding first, completely, then I started to game. Pretty soon, less than 30 seconds after the game started. it transformed into a slideshow. Card is folding fine, but gaming is very slow : I disabled PhysX, I disabled SLI, I game on 1024x768, no AA, tried Anisotropic filtering, Trilinear filtering, Shaders to medium, world detail to medium. BTW the game is NFS Carbon. Can this be a sign the card is dying? Folding is fine, card produces in excess of 10K PPD on default settings, never rises over 80 deg C.
