Hanging while gaming

Hi all. Im having this annoying problem. I upgraded from a Chaintech Gts250 to a Msi ngtx550ti. While gaming i get this occasional hang. maybe for like 2-3sec at a time every few minutes. I updated my gfx drivers to 285.62 . This hanging doesnt occur whie operating windows. only when i throw on a intesive gfx game like black ops or mw3. Friends saying its a weak psu. Its a 585w gigabyte odin. Ive de-fragged the drive and ran chkdsk. No overclocking has been done. My system specs are as follows:

Mobo : Intel dh55tc (tom cove)
Ram: 2x2gb kingston 1600mhz hyperx Ram
Gfx: Msi ngtx550ti
Ram Drives: 1x dvd Writer
hdd: 1x seagate 500gb
psu: 585w gigabyte odin
cpu: intel core i5 650 @ 3.2ghz
Case: CoolerMaster Storm Scout.

Thnx to any1 who tries to help me with this issue.

  1. Download the new beta driver from Nvidia and see if it makes a difference.
  2. Check your game settings. Some possible ways are: decreasing resolution, disabling anti-aliasing (AA), enabling/decreasing vsync. Try those out. Your power supply and cpu are fine. I think it should be your video setting :P
  3. although that power supply doesnt push 585w in actuality, it still should power the 550Ti
  4. Im thinking more along the lines that there isnt enough voltage on the rails maybe?
  5. Could it be possible that as the card get hotter , the psu not giving enuf amps? bcz it onli starts to stutter after a few minutes into the game?

    That could be, but all you for the 550ti is 28a on the 12v..... Check your psu and see.

    Although its a new card, have you checked your temps with monitoring software as well?
  8. I use the msi afterburner that came with it too moniter the temps. Under load its never exceeded 68 degrees (celsius) (154.4 Fahrenheit)
