Hi..I hav this peculiar problem.
Whenever I play some big games like fifa 08,09,godfather etc. i find that for sometime the graphics works fine for some period of time then shows a considerable lag ( coming frame by frame) for sometime..then comes normally again for sometime then again lags for sometime..this repeats again and again..
by sometime i mean say about half a minute.
i hav a geforce 8600 gt graphics card..amd athon 64x2 5200+ processor.
i dint hav this problem a few months back..only recently im experiencing this.

It's probably a program running in the background. You may want to check and see if your anti-virus is auto-updating while you're gaming. The next time you're about to play a game, open task manager and go under the performance tab. After you encounter this problem again while gaming, see if the cpu graph in task manager has a big spike in usage.
