Lately I seem to be getting some lag on a few games such as WOW and worms armageddon but everything else seems to work fine. I noticed this after my last PSU kinda burnt out all the sudden it wouldent work and when I kept messin with it it kinda made a whining nose and I could smell a burn smell comming out the back so I turned its powa switch off and proceeded to buy a replacment psu. Unfortunatly I had to get a cheap psu as i was broke atm so i got a 500w Apevia Turbolink atx 2.03 version. I was thinking that this lag may have something to do with the psu not giving enough lovin to my 8800gts since its kinda like a glitch stop and then a few sec later it will like snap back to normal. my volts in the bios are as follows the 3.3v = 3.29 the 5v = 4.78 and the 12v= 11.45. . Any help would be great guys :)

You are right, get a different psu. It may also be a driver issue. What drivers are you using? Also, please fill out your system specs and be sure to tick the box so we can see them.

Im pretty sure my system specs are shown. I was using the lates nvidia drivers and I just downloaded the new beta drivers but Im getting the same thing. I dont think its just a 8800gts thing because it never used to happen till I got this new psu.

What do you mean by lag?
Pausing for a second then carrying on when loading textures?

Well sometimes playing wow it will sometimes get jerky and with stuttering sound for a few sec's, but mostly its like a pause for a few sec's, and then the screen will snap back to the present situation where it will work fine agin. This happens usually a few times during each gaming session but always atleast once.
