Default Computer Freezing Problems

Whenever I play a multiplayer game like Call of Duty 2, CounterStrike etc...I seem to randomly freeze for 5 seconds or more

So yea...why is that

it could possibly bve low RAM or windows, more than likely Windows from what your specs say.

To find your settings just click "Options" when oyu are playing the games (at the main menu)

It also might be your internet connection and you're just getting lag.
