When playing games, it is normal for the CPU to be at 100% usage?

    Was playing The Last Remnant and noticed that the CPU was at 100% after installing rainmeter. Is this normal or is my computer just lame?

    p4 3.4 HT
    2gb ram
    Radeon 4670

    perfectly normal, your CPU is busy sending data to your VGA card.

    The last remnant uses around 20-25% of each of my cores and I have a quad core clocked at 3.5ghz, so yes it's normal for your P4
