It may be caused by two factors.
Let us know the results.

Not an ATI user myself, but I know that some nVidia cards sometimes miss some FPS during gameplay which cause the same thing. Priority level adjustment may minimize it.

You follow the run ... if there are problems, notice it, let us know. We need to know if the card is causing a problem or not, just. OK?

ok so i downloaded gpu-z to make a log of the temps.Attached it.When gpu temp reached 100 C, i stopped the test.

Edit:A friend gave me some drivers scan programs to run and they both found some out of date drivers.(
Are those programs legit or scams?Have driver detective and driver scanner by uniblue.

As far as I know, DriverMax is a trustworthy program.

Apparently, that high heat cause BSODs or graphics glitches anytime. Use Speccy to check the real time heat, if needed, arrange extra cooling.

Play with the game's priority settings, and see if it changes the situation or not.

And, how old the card is?

the card is asuseah4870 and i think i bought it about 3 and a half years ago.
As of the heat problem that u say,i thought of that before and was using a big homefan pointing at the gpu and ram and some days i was able to go without a bsod.
Drivermax points out the same outdated drivers as driver detective .
Going with speccy now , ill let you know.

SweetSaint, IMHO one almost 4 years old card is not very capable to play the latest games like MP3 or GW2 perfectly. Those require dense and powerful graphics, and only driver cannot make them compatible for that, the architecture of the card is also a big factor.

What I have said you earlier, see it. Set preferences to minimum, it will minimize that FPS loss hopefully. But cannot be able to stop totally.
