i need to figure out why have a couple of my pc games run slow they skip or just take forever to load the next action when pressing a button this is what i have in my mid tower:

MSI P67A-C43 B3 Intel P67 Motherboard - ATX

Intel Core i5-2500K BX80623I52500 Unlocked Processor - Quad Core

Patriot S5 Viper II PGV34G1600ELK Desktop Memory Kit - 4GB

DiabloTek PHD550 ATX Power Supply - 550W

the games im trying play smoothly with no problems are skyrim, fable 3, league of legends (and its not my internet connection for league), batman AA, splinter cell conviction, and a couple of other games. and to note im not running any other program while gaming please someonne tell me whats the solution.

so, there's no GPU in your tower? you kinda need one to run games

and out of the games you listed all of them are running slow or just some?

go into your BIOS and make sure the integrated GPU on the CPU is disabled

undo the over-clock on GPU and try then. check what graphics adapter is being used when you're gaming with msi afterburner

Don't know if this is what is causing the issue, probably not, but that power supply is junk. I'd replace it before it goes out and takes another part of your system with it.

Are you running the latest video card drivers from Nvidia?

Also remember to check the resource monitor (Bring up Task Manager, flick to Performance Tab, hit the Resource Monitor)
Check the disk section and sort by write column.
Often the Windows box can be running background tasks that slam the hard drive.

Windows Indexer and Windows Search are two of the main ones.

Disable in Services and try the games again. They really taxed my machine trying to play MW3, the intro video would keep pausing etc.

yes, that would be the cause easily, check with msi afterburner what the temps are when you're running the game
