okay so i had to get a new motherboard because my old one crashed and burned

ASUS P5N7A-VM fairly sure that's the one i have now
4gb ram(3.3 useable or w/e)
nvidia geforce 8200

okay so i updated my drivers and what not

computer runs fine(slightly choppy at times) untill i log in my games

when i log in 2 clients of dark age of camelot


they're honestly not taking up much cpu at all
after about 10 seconds in game i'll start running around and literally every 5 seconds my computer will freeze for 1/2 a second music will cut out movement stops etc/ then it picks back up where it would've went
anyone have any possible ideas of why this is happening?
and is my system process supposed to be that high? maybe that has something to do with it?
because when i log into the games system goes from a nice 00 to 09-15

i also ran process explorer to check it out and got this
idk if there's anything noticeable in any of this but if there is can anyone please help?
tyvm! :thumbsup:

Have a look in the Event Viewer for any errors that might shed some light on the problem.

To open the Event Viewer go to Start > Control Panel > Administrative Tools > Event Viewer. Alternately, go to Start > Run and type in "eventvwr.msc" (without the quotes) and press Enter.

Check in all the categories.

If you find an error that occurred at the time right-click on it and select properties. Copy the information in the window and post it back here. This will help us diagnose your problem.

How To Use the Event Viewer
The power of accurate observation is commonly called cynicism by those who haven't got it.
