I've just purchased a new desktop and it's specs are fantastic (well to me it is). However, the thing can't play ANY game without lagging ridiculously. The game would first run smoothly, if not hyper-speeding everything, then it would go into this 1 frame/5sec mode for couple seconds then repeat the same process again. I don't know what's up with the system, but after checking TaskManager, I noticed that when the lag starts the CPU would spike up an extra 10% and that SYSTEM in the list would appear to be trying to do something that lags the game! Please help! This is pretty depressing for me since I was greatly expecting some fantastic game play. Any help is much appreciated.
