Hi everyone, lately my computer goes slow while playing warcraft or any other online game, sometimes the game screen goes black or has glitches all over the game, but i can still hear the music and sounds, when i minimize the screen the computer is very slow and game crashes, what could be causing the problem?

I got:
- Computer Case with 2 cooling Fans
- Windows XP service pack 2
- 3GB DDR2 Memory Ram (OLD)
- Motherboard Micro-Star MSI K9A2 CF-F Socket AM2+ ATX Motherboard MS-7388-010,

- Ultra LSP650 650-Watt Power Supply (NEW)
- Hard Drive 160GB
- Video Card GeForce GTX 460 768MB (New)


Any toughts? I play with a resolution of 1920x 1080, Thanks for your time!

Uninstall the existing Nvidia graphics drivers. But before installing the newest driver... If you've installed several video cards over the life of the computer and not properly uninstalled the old drivers, download, install and run (from Safe Mode) Driver Sweeper. Have it look for graphics driver remnants and have it remove them. Reboot and install the latest Nvidia driver for your card.

Assuming your equipment is OK, and you have the latest Nvidia driver installed, I would try cleaning your system of useless garbage that collects over time and registry errors that occur. Download, install, and run CCleaner. Do the 'clean' and 'registry' both. Defrag.
Doing CCleaner/defrag alone may be all you need to do if the above paragraph doesn't apply to you.

Run CCleaner at least weekly and it will stay fast. Happy to hear it's better...
