Assessing Damage / CPU? Mobo?

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
What parts need to be replaced?

My homebuilt PC was dropped and I am trying to assess the damage.
It boots up fine and runs fine under normal operation; however, now when I try to play games the CPU usage goes up to 100% (performance tab on task manager) and the frame rate is very bad.

GPU fan speeds, clock, etc. appear to have not been affected (catalyst control center).

Before the accident, games ran perfectly.

Any suggestions or help would be appreciated!

If you have extra parts lying around try swapping them in and out and testing. Fry's has a nice return policy for processors and video cards. At least, when I went to test out some benchmarks for a new processor and graphics card they took them back and refunded me right away. Just told them I didn't like them and weren't up to par with what I was looking for heh.
