I'm almost 100% positive that it's not software related, it happens with multiple games on my system.

I haven't checked my 12v rail voltages but i have kept an eye on my cpu/vid card temps and the max that my cpu ever get is 52C.
I just bought Call of Duty World at War tonight and installed it. System is having a real hard time loading, once i'm in the game i'm perfectly fine. Takes forever from the time i click the shortcut to actually get to the menu, then once there forever to join a server.
Edit: Well CoD:WaW is by far the worst of all the games in causing this problem, what does codwaw use more of than the previous games stated that would cause this?
Could it be a lack of physical memory? As in get better/more ram? I've checked my page file and at normal idle with a few basic programs open it's around 650+MB, while running games it jumps to 1.3GB.
Edit#2: Well normally when i play games i have steam, xfire, avg and stuff like that runnin in the background. So i shut all those off and ran CoD:WaW and it helped significantly, so would this be a memory or a processor issue?
