PofP, SofT...
Min System Requirements:

Operating System: Windows 98 SE/ 2000/ ME/ XP (ONLY)
Processor: 800 MHz Pentium III or AMD Athlon
Memory: 256 MB of RAM
Video Card: 64 MB GeForce 3 or higher, or ATI® Radeon 8500 or higher, Matrox Parhelia (GeForce4 MX not supported)
Sound Card: DirectX 9.0 or higher compliant sound card
DirectX Version: 9.0 or higher (included on game disc)
Hard Drive Space: 1.5 GB minimum
CD-ROM: 16X or better (not recommended for use with CD-RWs)
Additional Supported Peripherals: ThrustMaster FIRESTORM Dual Analog 3
Controls: Windows-compatible keyboard and mouse

the machine meets requirements for PofP,

FIFA 09 System Requirements

- Operating Systems: Windows XP SP2 / Windows Vista
- CPU: 2.4 GHz
- RAM: 512 Megabytes of RAM (1 GB required for Windows Vista)
- DirectX® 9.0c Compatible 3D accelerated 128 MB video card or equivalent (must support Shader Model 2.0 or above)
- DirectX® 9.0c Compatible Sound Card
512Kbps or greater broadband connection for online gameplay
- 1.63 GB free hard disk space for DVD format and additional space required for DirectX® 9.0c installation
- 8x or faster DVD-ROM drive

Now FIFA, might be iffy... but it's doesn't sound like it's just a game issue...

Edit: does this happen with all games? what about programs other than games?
