Windows 7: Old games have lag spikes

I think my w7 runs better since I installed the sp1. It is still a lil glitchy at some things video codecs or reading dics or installing patches what ever- but it games like a champ and the few older games I have installed.

Just got just cause2 and mafia2 the other day, not playing mafia2 yet tho- love jc2. Gees it is beautiful and runs great even on my old 8800 gts ko g92 vid card. I am not really into 3rd view games but jc2 is pretty cool. If I keep my vid card fan cranked up to 84 85% while gaming I have no probs.

Need to vac my intake fans filters and vid card exhaust- maybe I will do it later today- it is 330 am now. Guess I am happy with my new system and w7- as long as I can game and make my videos I am ok I guess. When I get a better vid card I am going to try and over clock this thing to like 4.2 on the cpu- maybe will game even better. Hope so any way.

Hope you guys got or get your systems figured out and have some fun gaming.

See ya..

I have an Acer laptop, but I could fiddle around with the Intel HD, even if I screw it up, it's no biggy, seeing I have an ati graphics card installed.
I'm pretty sure I have windows updated as I update often and check for updates.
Thanks for tips though.
