Default Bottlenecking in Games, Please help

Hi,

About a week ago I started experiancing heavy bottlenecking in my games, this has not happened before under the same comp config. Whenever something new is introduced into the main memory the computer freezes up for a few seconds then continues doing what it was doing.

I tried the following: Adaware, Spybot, New drivers, defragment

Any suggestions would be appreciated.

Specs: 2.4c P4, Geforce 6800 GT, 2700 DDR Corsair ram, Asus p4800 deluze Mobo

That processor is pretty bad for gaming. It probably has 533mhz FSB. What would really help is a new mobo/processor/RAM. That video card is standing alone while your computer is gaming. Its not that something is wrong with your computer, just the hardware cant handle those tasks.

That hardware can very well handle all proccesses. The C version of that p4 is 800 fsb and i overclocked it to 1000 fsb, Im running oc'ed at 3.14c and i have had no problems until a week ago, this is in no way abuot my hardware, its a software issue. 3dmark 2005 score is 4522 and 2003 score is 11059

Psyonicdeath, you should of said something about the OC. You said 2.4ghz, rather then a 24ghz OC to 3.1. If you where running a 2.4ghz Intel, then you would have problems gaming, since those are really weak Intels for gaming.

Could be a heat issue. With overclocking especially. Your cpu was never designed to work at that speed because of heat issues. You overclock by abuot 30%, well heat rises exponentially so most likely that is the problem. Also see if your heatsink is full of dust or not. Can make a big difference.

Yup, good point from jppoulin.

Also, when you defragment: does your defragging software also defrag your mft?
