Hi, I had played a lot of MMOs for the past 4 years, but suddenly a lot of them started to lag without a real reason. I mostly have problems with Allods Online. I checked the system requirements for the game but my specs are high above the recommended. My connection is also good; my latency is always on green. When I restart my PC the game runs fine for about 20 min, and then starts to lag again. It looks like it was a memory leak (which i don't really know how to solve) ,but I'm not sure. Please help.
Graphics Card- GTX 295 RAM- 4GB CPU- Dual Core, 4.0 GHz My connection is 10 MB I believe
How long have you had everything, including the graphics card?
I have the graphics card for about 6 months now and all other components are a year old...
Also i forgot to mention one thing: When i lower the graphics and sound settings in the game to the lowest possible, the performance doesn't improve.
Is this happening with all games? Is it just while online or in single player too?
Time for a defrag! :p

Sounds like overheating, especially seeing as it works for a while and then starts to lag, and is unaffected by setting changes. When certain components cross a particular thermal threshold, notably CPUs and graphics cards, they throttle (downclock) in order to generate less heat. Games are particularly demanding on such hardware, and as they also rely on these parts performing at their peak levels, they show the most obvious signs of throttling when it occurs, in the form of shitty frame rates.
Open up your case and give everything a good dusting with some compressed air. Make sure to clean the fans especially well, as well as vents on your case. Dust is a huge factor in computer cooling issues. Also, what thermal paste are you using on your CPU?
Also, make sure it's tightened enough, the stock intel fan can be a bitch and might popped loose when moving the pc or so.
It's not overheating, i checked my temp is 49c
lol I'm not sure I know how

Is that 49C sitting idle on your desktop, or in the middle of one of these intense games? And is that a CPU or graphics card temp?

I'd put my bets on the GPU temp. GTX cards tend to get very hot, even with some sort of internal cooling.
