So whenever I play World At War, Alien Swarm, or Call of Duty 4, they have this chopiness. I am running these games on Windows 7 Ultimate 64bit. I had Vsync turned off. I have Windows 7 Ultimate. This happens throughout the whole time I play these games.It gets choppy, like the framerate is perfectly normal and smooth, but about every half a second it almost stays on the same frame for maybe 1 5th of a second, this may not seem like much, and the times are estimated, but this gets very annoying.

Ok so my max temps while playing WAW for my CPU was 70c, max temp for my GPU was 55c. I have the 10.7 ATI drivers, the most updated one. Is there a part in my computer that makes it Choppy? What can I do to fix this? It isn't choppy on Call of Duty 2 with max settings, or The Witcher on medium settings. But I even tried out the worst possible settings on World at War and it was still choppy. Help please?

You covered everything except for the operating system you are running these games on.

Please include whether it is 32 bit or 64 bit.

Thanks for your reply you have Windows 7 64 Bit.

It may not work entirely for you and the games you are currently using, but one thing I have noticed when I encountered problems with certain games with Windows 7 is I tried several procedures on a trial basis to see if I gained reasonable results.

First I tried running the .exe as Administrator by right clicking the .exe that starts the game, I also tried compatibility mode for Windows XP, I also noticed this presented me with menu options to run the .exe (executable) in different screen resolutions.

I found that running one game in particular ran flawlessly when I did the following: I went to my game folder, I right clicked the .exe file, chose properties, then check marked run as administrator.

Next I chose run in XP mode and had no further problems with the game.

Its worth a try.

Check to see if there is any hard drive activity when these slowdowns occur. I ran for the longest time with 2gigs of RAM (Vista 64) until I started running Crysis and discovered my framerates dropped when the machine ran out of memory and my hard drive started to thrash. Supposedly WIN7 is better with memory management, but it don't hurt to check. If it slugs down and the hard drive light is flashing, you might have found the problem.

I am a retired Ford tech. Next to Fords, any computer is a piece of cake. (The cake, its not a lie)

3770K @4.5, Corsair H100, GTX780, 16gig Samsung, Obsidian 700 (yes there is a 700)

I have 196 gbs left in my hard drive, but the light flashes all of the time. Also the run as administrator thing didn't work.
