Default bizarre FPS issues

Ok this doesn't make any sense, any game I play I get a constant fluctuation in FPS...Whether it be World of Warcraft or Dawn of War.

I've been over everything a dozen times...

-No overheating on the CPU/Video/Chipset/RAM
-Defragmented over and over again
-Video drivers up to date

This is so amazingly frustrating I cant figure out what the **** is going on.


Computer Specs:
--------------------------------
MSI K8N 1000MhZ FSB

120GB SATA (For games)

40GB IDE (System)

1.0GB RAM (Mushkin PC3200)

AMD 64-bit 3000+

GeForce 6600GT (AGP)

400W PowerSupply
--------------------------------

I'll give anyone who has any ideas that work a lollipop and a glass of warm milk...

Its probably normal with that setup there...you may want a full computer upgrade to get the performance you want.
