Anyone who is an online gamer will know what I mean by lag: the computer's responsiveness slows down. I have a new gaming computer that has a lot of processing power and a gig of ram, and I also have a fast internet connection. That means that my computer never suffers from lag. However, recently it has. It's a very strange problem that happens from the moment I turn my computer on to the moment I turn my computer off. It's also very methodical. Every four seconds the computer seems to freeze for a millisecond. It is almost unnoticable if I'm just typing or goofing around on the computer. However when I'm playing a game online I notice is easily because I'm very sensitive to how my computer is responding. I noticed it immediately and then was able to notice it even when my computer is booting up. Sometimes I can hear it when I'm playing music too, its as if someone hit a cd player and for a split second it skips. I tried uninstalling EVERYTHING I had installed in the last two days in order to make it go away, but it keeps on coming back up. I think I noticed it right away but it could have been there before. I've also been having some problems with a new soundcard I installed, the Creative Xtreme Music X-Fi or whatever, so I was thinking that might have caused it. If anyone has any ideas that would be great. (I really want to avoid uninstalling the soundcard and messing around with that cause it has enough problems already)

Does your system meet all the requirements?

Make sure you have the latest drivers for that audio card by visiting the manufacturer's site and checking for drivers for that particular card.
Whereof one cannot speak, thereof one should be silent.
