All Games Running Choppy HELP!!

April 16, 2009 at 14:33:29
Specs: Windows XP
I have a AMD Athlon 64X2 Dual 4800+ 2.51GHz with 3 Gbs of RAM. I have a Nvidia GeForce 9600GT.
All my drivers are up to date and i have run every virus scan, registry fix, and spyware scan.
Still all games that used to run smooth on high now lag, even when turned to the lowest settings.
I took it to get repaired and they said my drivers were not up to date. I uninstalled and updated like a million times with the exact same results. I don't understand why i could go from playing fear 2 and crysis flawlessly to not even being able to play Warcraft 3 smoothly. My friend said my card might be fryed, but if that was the case it shouldn't work at all. If anyone has any suggestions. PLEASE HELP ME

re: nvidia drivers , check you really do have the new drivers installed and the old ones deleted
Version:182.50 latest if it is, then uninstall & reinstall the last version that worked, complaints here

id suggest both run 3dmark 06 trial compare your results to eg:

8 GB DDR3 1333?
wow! sell some ram & the 9600 and buy a graphics card to match the rest of the pc.

I recently put together a computer and here are my basic specs:

AMD Phenom X3 triple-core processor(2.3 ghz)
MSI motherboard with integrated nvidia geforce 6100se with nforce 430
2 gb RAM
Nvidia geforce 8400gs graphics card (PCI)

I installed all the drivers up to date and my games still run choppy. My games are all choppy regardless of resolution and display settings. I'm not sure why im not getting high FPS even in counter strike source. I use the integrated chipset and the problem is the same regardless of my video adapter. Also, my computer every once in a while just locks up, and i have to turn it off and on. And every other time i boot, i look at my general computer properties and it shows 1.75gb of ram, and then the next time it shows 1.98 gb of ram. If someone could help me with these problems that would be great.

to be honest your card sucks that is most likely the cause of lag if you are playing remotely new games

system freezes and inconstancy of ram values sounds like your ram is having some issues to me

but back to the orignal post check the task manager to see how many processes you have running should be around 25 or so, the fewer the better if you have to many you might have a look in your startup
