This problem affects all games, it's just that these two games are the only ones I'm playing at the moment. The odd thing is that when there is a cutscene (for example in Skyrim and 2K12) the game works fine and runs at the normal 60FPS. When I'm actually playing the game however it drops to 5 or 6FPS.
Well there's your problem JaidynM!
Your GPU is stuck in low power mode (idle mode clocks) and not clocking up to the correct clocks when running those games!
According to the NVIDIA website (GeForce GTX 560 | Specifications | GeForce
) the GTX 560 is supposed to operate at
Core Clock @ 810 MHz, Memory Clock @ 1001 MHz and shaders 1620 Mhz during 3D Mode/Active operations
It seems that an application or something or another is preventing your GPU from upclocking itself when running a 3D application.
I've read that some cards could get stuck in such a mode if the user was watching Flash videos on youtube or any other form of videos requiring h264 compression on media players...
Have you tried playing your games straight from a fresh boot without any other background applications?
