Ok guys, my PC lags with almost every game I play, and when I say lag it's random. SWTOR ranges from 10-100 FPS while I'm standing in one area not moving. Same with LoL but it's FPS is 50-120 with nothing going on. SC2 is the worst. Also, certain web pages lag for me. This site is one of them. MMO-Champions is another. Any help as to why this happens would be greatly appreciated!! I'll post my dxdiag. The reason my page file is so high is because SC2 had an error saying I ran out of paged file memory when it was set to 8gigs so I just upped it to 20gigs lol :)  I have a 650watt PSU and I just updated to the newest NVIDIA drivers. I think that's all the info you guys might need. Let me know if you need more, and thanks for helping!!

Hi, can you edit your post and take out all the useless stuff after your Video card (display devices). I'm glad you've learned that there's such a tool as dxdiag available to you, there's no need to post the whole log if you don't understand what any of it means.

Set your page file to 12Gb.

Enable vsync in games and see what that does. your display native res is 1680x1050, is that the resolution you're running on?

Is your CPU oced? What about GPU? What are the temperatures and % loads during games when lags happen? Have you tried running with no background processes or with gamebooster?
March 12, 2012 6:12:35 PM

I've never heard of gamebooster, but that seemed to help out a lot :)  My CPU is oced from 3.3 to 4.0 and max temp is 50° C using Prime95. GPU is not oced and the temp while using FurMark was surprisingly high. 87° C was the highest and stayed between 85 and 86. Running Crysis 2 temps don't exceed 60° C and GPU usage is 99%
March 12, 2012 7:07:26 PM

Alright, so have you tried enabling vsync?

GPU @ 99% means it's running full blast, which should be giving you the best possible FPS the card can provide at the settings you're playing at.

So, there's 2 things, either your background processes are consuming resouces or your graphics settings are too high for your GPU to handle.
