Long time reader, first time poster.

In October I bought parts for a new gaming rig and everything has been fine, until now.

Within the space of 3 days my FPS has taken a nose dive and I'm not sure why.

I've been playing Divinity Original Sin 2 recently (on Ultra) and it has been fine. But I open this afternoon and I can't even get over 15FPS. On very low it runs at 25FPS.

I haven't installed any new programs or applications, or bought any new hardware. The only difference between then and now is that I have bought my PC with my to house-sit for a few weeks. It was strapped in for the whole trip and didn't move around. I had it in the passenger seat XD

I'm running a GTX1060, 16GB RAM, Intel i5 quad processor, 600W PSU.

I'm no whizkid, so laymen's terms please.

Updated NVidia drivers and also validated game files on Steam. Hasn't worked so far.
