Hey! First of all I'm sorry if this question was already asked, but I couldn't think of a way of searching for it.

Okay, I've been noticing that EVERY single game I play, I get like 10 seconds on extremely smooth performance, but then, like 6 seconds of ridiculously low FPS (like 3 frames per second).

It doesn't matter if it's an old game or a new game, it always happens.

My specs: AMD 64X2 5600+ 3.0Ghz 4Gb Ram 512Mb GF9600Gt w/ latest drivers Running Win XP Pro 32

-It's not the games, as it happens on every game, old or new, randomly, even at menus and stuff. -It's not the temperature, as it is around 45°C which is fine. -Not a background processes issue, nothing is consuming neither RAM or CPU.

For example, with Prototype running, the CPU Usage is around 30% and the Commit Charge around 400 / 5211 M

Any help would be very... huh... ...helpful.

Thanks!

Could be driver problems. Install latest drivers.

FYI this belongs in the tech discussion

He said they were the latest drivers. You might just have a bad component somewhere, my brother has that exact same setup (except his 9600 has 768 mb), and he's never had a problem with games because of drivers.

Latest drivers don't mean anything. He should try some different driver revisions since nvidia drivers are know to be weird depending on the system/games.

ATi drivers are also known for the same thing, and if latest drivers don't mean anything why did you suggest them?

Maybe because I didn't see that he already had latest drivers and it is most likely a driver-related issue?

I would suggest redo them. Completely remove the drivers, then install them again.

EDIT: Whoops. My bad.

He has an Nvidia card, so I don't think Catalyst will work.

EDIT: Oh did you think I meant the All-In-Wonder 9600? Sorry, that was my fault I meant to say the 9600 GT :)

Sorry for posting this at the wrong place and thanks for the answers!

I just did it, no change.

I built this computer myself, about 4 months ago. It's very frustrating to have such a good setup and not being able to play any games without the wrath of lag spikes.

I actually had lag spikes playing Chris Sawyer's Locomotion and I'm dead serious.

Dunno what should I do. Tried everything.
