Recently I got a new graphics card and have been experiencing some weird issues. I start up a game then it runs fine for a while then suddenly the sound starts to get distorted and i get a lag but my fps is still like 60. I close out and look at the task manager and the cpu usage is extremely high. I restart the computer then its fine. Other times I can have a whole gaming session without any issues.
Here's my specs:
Pentium(r) dual core e5300 2.60GHz
6 gb of idk what type of ram
gtx 550 ti 2gb
also i recently put in a new power supply, since my last one went out, it's like a 530w and to get to it had to take off the cpu fan then re-glued it after.
What are your Temps? anything over 70 I would say is a start to overheating at medium load. The overheating per say will not make it lagg but it might cause the hardware to not work to its full potential which will cause lagg.
