Hello,

Whenever I start to play a game about 4 or so minutes in to it, my game will start lagging insanely and then after a few minutes it'll go ok then do it all over again this just doesn't stop and does it regardless of which game i'm playing.

Running amd 6000+
asus m4n78
4gb ddr 800mhz
nvidia 9800gt
550w psu

this all only started happening yesterday have had the computer for over a year now

Check the card temps, it could be an overheating...

Defraged your computer lately, also with 4g or more of ram you can try running without a swapfile...:)

That is too hot for an idle temp and would suggest that the HSF is clogged up with dust.
