CPU/FPS Lag spikes when playing games !

Hello guys !!

Hmmm.. three weeks ago, i had problem with lagg spike while iam playing game " World of warcraft " and still have problem, i really don't have any ideas what's going on :"((

I'm sick of this problem so i am reporting in to try and find a fix, basically whenever i run a game the FPS will be running at a good level then all of a sudden - it will drop to around 5 and my CPU Usage will also go up to 95-100%.

Please guys help me !

Can't help if I don't know your hardware configuration. Please include what motherboard,cpu,gpu and if it's windows 7 32 or 64 bit so I can further help you. For future reference you can fill in your computer specs by clicking at the top of the forum "user cp" then clicking edit system spec and add as many details about your system as possible please.

This could be the problem. Intel integrated grapics are not good to run games, and World Of Warcraft requires a decent GPU to run smootly.

Look at this, it could help: WoW Lag Spike

Have you also tried to re-install the game? Have you patched it to the last version?
