4 Day old build. great specs. laggy video/audio starting today?

ok just built a rig for gaming/video editing and whatnot and all was good up until today when things started to stutter... when i log on the log on sound lags a little, my mouse is jumping quite a bit, on youtube and games audio/video stutter a lot. but none of this was happening until today. i have the latest video drivers from nvidia so im not sure if that is it because like i said, it worked the past 3 days... any ideas? specs below

  1. use the processor Explorer from microsoft to see anything use up cpu power at the background
    http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/sysinternals/bb896653

    if cannot find anything...

    Try to disable the SSD for cache just start the system with the WD to see any improvement back to normal..

    The last one if you still solve the problem.. check the HD Status..
    use crystal disk info http://crystalmark.info/software/CrystalDiskInfo/index-e.html

    see the smart status is ok
  2. well i fixed it. the processor was fine and that hard drive program didn't find my hard drive for some reason but i remembered that i updated the nvidia drivers recently... i rolled back to the previous version and low and behold it works again :D
