When I play warhammer online- the game seems to run seamlessly except there is always a hiccup in performance about every 20 seconds for about 5-10 seconds or so. On top of that as soon as I get into player vs player environments I get major performance issues as soon as 5-10 enemy players are on screen.

I've recently built a PC:
x64 2.6 duel core amd 5000+
4 gigs of DDR2 667mh
8800GT 512 cache
500GB Sata 3

Did a speed test and got about 10mb/s

I turned video settings the very lowest I could, still with the same problems- although I believe I should be able to run the game on highest settings

Here's the game sys reqs:

For Windows VISTA

2.5 GHz P4 processor or equivalent
2 Gigabyte RAM
A 128 MB Video Card, with support for Pixel Shader 2.0
At least 15 GB of hard drive space

Supported Video Cards
NVIDIA GeForce series

FX 5900, FX 5950
6600, 6800,
7600, 7800, 7900, 7950
8400, 8500, 8600, 8800
9400, 9500, 9600, 9800
GTX 260, GTX 280

Really can't figure out what the issue is, and with it being a Player vs player game- the performance is seriously affecting gameplay. Although, like I said- it runs flawlessly until that hiccup hits (which isn't random- it hits about every 20 seconds for 5-10 seconds) Any help appreciated

Have you updated the graphics driver's lately from the Nvidia website?

Yep, got the new ones. Been playing with settings in the control panel for performance but it isn't getting rid of it.

This may be an overheating issue. Does this occur in other games that you play?

http://downloads.guru3d.com/RivaTuner-v2.1...wnload-163.html. Go there, and download and install rivatuner. It's a program that can tell you the temperature of your gpu. Let us know what it says while your computer is just idling, or while you're not gaming, and then play a game until it starts doing the hiccups you described, and then record this temperature too. Let us know your results!
