  Graphics performance reduced after playing games for a little bit

Bug description:
  I recently upgraded to Saucy. I noticed that everytime I play
  something like Counter Strike Source, my graphics performance drops
  down to something like 15fps while normally it is locked at a max FPS
  of 40fps..

  This slowdown happens and also makes my computer generally pretty
  slow. Thermo maximum has not been tripped (I know, and I actually
  underclock while playing these games).

  I'm not sure why this is happening. It only happens on 13.10. I have
  bumblebee installed. I used both cards to play the game and the same
  thing happens
