Default Is my graphics card dying?

I've got a Geforce 8400gs, I've had it for about 1 and a half years.
Lately its performance has dropped, i can't play GTA at highest settings any more it also struggles at the lowest settings.
I get like 50 fps for about 20 minutes, then it drops to about 10-20 and stays there I sometimes get down to 2 fps. I don't think it's over heating because when i check its temperature with ATITools at the point when my fps is really low it's only around 40 degrees celsius and i have the side cover off my computer to cool it down more if it is over heating.

My CPU is an Intel Pentium 4 with 3ghz if that helps. I'll check the temp next time i go play.

I had the same processor before my new pc, same happened to me, though i just cleaned out my computer so it wasn't running so hot and that seemed to solved the laggy gameplay.

I have Intel Pentium 4 3Ghz too, this year the performance reduced for me too, can't make films with Fraps anymore.
And the computer takes longer with loading software.
