Hi, I dont know the correct term to describe this, but when i try and run a game such as GTA 4 or Batman Arkham City on max settings for the first few seconds of gameplay the game lags. (This is offline gameplay i just cant think of another way to describe it).

After about 3/5 seconds gameplay is fluid for as long as I play it.

This isn't a problem I was just wondering if there's any reason for it?

My hardware is:
AMD FX-4100
XFX Radeon HD 6850
8GB Ram (DDR3)
650W PSU
