first, system specs: giga-byte 7vax, athlon t-bred 1800+, 9500 pro, 512 crucial pc2700.
my problem: after about 15 minutes after i reboot and start playing any game, my system begins to stutter. when i play unreal tournament, it stutters continuously. when i play a game like wc3, it pauses every 3 seconds. this problem wasn't too bad at first, but now i just can't stand it.
i've tried: reinstalling vid card a few times, using a different driver version each time. and i tried updating my bios.
has anyone else had this problem? or know of a reason that my pc is giving me this problem?
