Gaming Lag

Hi All

I have recently got back into gaming with new Medal of Honor but have started to get a lot of slow down/lag after about 5 mins of playing sp and mp.

I decided to reinstall COD4 MW and COD4 MW2 to see if these ran ok (they used to run fine on xp and vista wit hhigh settings) but i get the same slowdown/lag even on both sp & mp ?

I have messed about with the video setting and display, even internet settings , but no luck.
and i have all the latest drivers and updates.

I have noticed when i go to the desk top one of my core readings is always at 100% (core 0 normaly)?

Hope someone can help

The one CPU running at 100% is really odd, try downloading and running Process Explorer and let us know which program is using up a large amount of CPU.

Why not just use Task Manager which already can do that?

Personally, you should really consider switching to the 64bit version of windows, if possible. For one, Your not using all of your resources (mainly RAM). It could be bottle necking your performance........ just a suggestion.

Most, if not all, New games (any major ip for the past 3-4 years) are optimized for 64bit cpus. MoH more than likely falls in that category..
