My CPU:

Asus GTX680 nvdia card
i7-3820 3.6GHz 6 core
16gb ram
ATA WDC WD1002FAEX-0 SCSI Disk Device

sorry for my poor english.

i bought my pc in the early this year, everything gone smoothly.

since last 3months, i involved in one game call Crossfire online, a multiplayers game like counter strike. This is a 6 years old game and with very normal graphic quality, 0 lag spike.

but after i installed one game from steam : DCS World (air combat multiplayer game)
I feel lag spike in this game, so i finally i uninstalled it.

after that when i play crossfire i feel lag spike. At 1st I suspect is the game security Xtrap causing the problem. But my in-game friend still playing smoothly. so i suspect maybe is the previous game installation changing some of my current software version.

last few days, i had format my pc. After that the game was playing smoothly, but after i restart my pc, the game lag spike continue.

everytime when i reinstall the game, the game going smoothly before i restart my pc, once restart my pc, the problem come back.

Or to solve the lag spike i have to copy the game folder to external hard disk, if i start the game through external hard disk, 0 lag spike.

I wonder whether is my SDD problem.

Any suggestion?

that restart thing is weird....do you have the latest drivers for you card???

it is not the ssd (had it been so,all the apps installed in the ssd would have felt slow)

Yes. i always update my Nvdia graphic card

the spike lag is like some background program running and scanning, the lag spike is serious when my pc early start.

After few game rounds, the lag spike decrese, but still sometime the 1sec lag spike can kill me...

i wonder why, becasue last time even my pc newly start the game still 0 lag spike

what you can do is....keep an eye on the cpu and gpu usage while gaming.

the moment you see a lag...switch to the monitoring program to see if there is anything unusual
