Broad.
What motherboard, ram, Power supply.

A CPU being dual Core has nothing to do with Game Freezing.
Update Game patch, direct X, Graphics Driver, windows.

How many running Processes?
Use Everest or speedfan to list given Tempartures.
What Case and cooling setup?

Normal Cooling? As in you added Nothing?

Overheating May be the problem then. Fill all open fan Slots and lower room temp.

And Link does not work.
