Solved

I’ve been having lag issues even though my PC is high End.

I’ve been having a performance issue on my one year old gaming computer.

Every time I get more than 20 minutes of gameplay of any game that requires a lot from the video card, I always
manage to get short-term spans of lag that are common and annoying, which may ruin the experience.

I’ve noticed that the computer would overheat for a while, so I took it to a technician and he decided to raise the number of coolers that the computer uses. It didn’t work.

I’ve asked my father’s help, he said the video card was heating to a normal temperature and that the PC was the fastest the market could offer.

The problem was certainly not on the video card. But maybe it’s an online server problem. (as my dad says).

I tried using Razer’s Game Booster in order to eliminate any Extra activities the PC may be having during game time, it didn’t work either.

This issue doesn’t seem to affect other players when I play it. The games that have shown this issue more prominently are Borderlands 2, Diablo III, Sonic Generations (offline) and Warframe.

My Specs:
CPU: Pentium® Dual Core CPU E5700 3.00GHZ (2CPUS) 3.00
RAM: 4096MB
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 32 bits
Video Card: NVIDIA Geforce 9600 GSO512
BIOS: Award Modular BIOS v6.00PG

  1. Download MSI afterburner and open the graph up on it. Run your games to where it starts to lag, and then get a SS of the graph and post it here.

    The graph should look something like this:

  2. It's also worth noting your pc is not high-end, it was 5-6 years ago but today it would not even be considered entry level.

    As suggested above I would download the likes of EVGA precision or MSI afterburner to monitor the gpu and coretemp or realtemp to monitor the cpu temperatures.

    Your card is overheating way past the point of being safe!

    Nvidia site lists its max at 105C.

    You should down clock your card to lower the temp in the mean time. Lower the core clock in increments of 50 untill it is aroun 90-100 when gaming to be safe.

    You need to repair your card.

    I would take it apart and re-apply thermals paste.
