Help!! When I'm playing graphics intensive games (HL2, BIA) my computer stutters every 30 seconds or so, the game locks and the sound stutters for 10 seconds or so. I recently installed new 1gb of ram, but it would do this before, but now its worse! It did it even when showing the credits at the end of HL2. My computer also clicks when it does this. Any ideas? I thought it may be overheating.
ATI Radeon 9800 pro 128mb
1gb Corsair PC3200 2.5 latency
FSB @ 166 and memory @ 200
Heat .. yes but could also be some other software your running. Why don't you look at the processes running on youre computer in the Windows task Manager (Alt-Ctrl-Del) or find some other process monitoring tools.
If you want them in sync, the board should support a 1:1 ratio of CPU at 166 and RAM at 166. Both of these busses are DDR (333 data rate for 166 clock rate).
