I've been using my new build for about a month now, and I've noticed a strange and slightly annoying problem. It's a little hard to explain, so please bear with me for a minute. I also hope this is the right forum to post this.
What happens is that I get random 'jerkiness' or lag. I've noticed this in games, though more in some that others, where it manifests itself by the game freezing for about 2-3 seconds and the sound looping, before the game goes on normally. Bioshock 2 and Borderlands have been running perfectly fine without this happening at all, whereas Half-Life 2 (and, generally, all Source games) has been giving me this a lot.
It also happens when using firefox, more at some times than others (I'm guessing it's site dependent). For example, right now while I'm typing, the computer stops reacting every few minutes or so, just for a few seconds, and then everything I've typed in that time appears quickly. Finally, it happens occasionally while watching video. Youtube is particularly bad.
The CPU and memory usage are normal/low, and neither really seems to spike when this happens. CPU and GPU temperatures are all normal, and again don't really seem particularly high at times when this happens. Nothing in my computer is overclocked (other than the stock clock for the graphics card).
Really hope someone has some suggestions. Build details are in my signature.
