I have Warcraft III, and a Radeon 9100 SE 128MB card on my computer. I was wondering, whenever a certan amount of animation is being done on Warcraft III, mainly when I play custom games, the game starts to jump, and get very choppy, and I can't really play effectivly anymore. Is this because of my graphics card? Or my 2.0 GHZ Celeron processor? Or something else even.

hmmm.... cant be your CPU or your RAM. Have you recently cleaned your computer for spyware/viruses/malware/etc.? becuase the 9100 SE can play a wide variety of games with no problem.

I'm currently removing one as we uhhhh, forum. But a virus wouldn't make my gamming lag would it? Remember, it only lags after there are a huge number of sprites on the screen, all of them animated and such.

I have found that killing a lot of programs running in the background helps to a degree. If there are game options, you might experiment with changing these towards the "best performance" side of the slidebars. As graphics intensive as games are becomming, it is sometimes necessary to reduce graphics to enhance gameplay.
