Type system information into start menu search box. Hit enter. Then in screen that pops up, do ctrl+s to save. Then Winrar the saved file. Attach the .rar to a post so we could check on a few things. Something might alert us or stand out.

i struggle to figure out why some1 playing a game online would have so much stuff running behind the game......does it do it in single player and did you turn off multi-core? you have way too many things running in the background....also, what kind of internet connection do you have?

I struggle to figure out why anybody would "turn off multi-core"? Can you explain that in more detail?

Because even Valve admits that it is buggy as hell. It often causes rather unstable frame rates. The multi-core rendering Valve has implemented for source engine games is still pretty much in beta.

The system looks suprisingly well although I did notice you didn't uninstall the 3d Steroscopic NVIDIA driver.

I also noticed your refesh rate is 59 Hz. Perhaps give this thread a read....Somewhere in the middle of it is a fix.

59Hz

Ok hope nobody read the this cause it's an edit.

Code:
"Make its initial size as big as the maximum size.  Although this  will cause the Pagefile
to occupy more HD space, we do not want it to  start off small, then having to constantly
grow on the HD. Writing large  files (and the Pagefile is indeed large) to the HD will cause a
lot of  disk activity that will cause performance degradation. Also, since the  Pagefile only 
grows in increments, you will probably cause Pagefile  fragmentation, adding more overhead
to the already stressed HD."
http://www.petri.co.il/pagefile_optimization.htm

Goes back to one of my ideas of the HDD having performance issues. 5G is a lot for a paigefile, and if it was made over time the files may not be close together. Since it is one of the hardest files to defrag you usually get stuck with it "as is". This is another thing you could look at, cause as time progressed you started seeing this problem, you remove AV and it helped, but it's still their. Which makes me seem to believe the disc isn't reading files as quick as it shood somewhere else as well. All back to performance, The larger the hard drive you get the more you have to think about performance because the farther those files can fragment.

Hi mushroomboy,

Something I learned from an expert here, is that with enough ram (and 6gb of ram is more than enough), the pagefile just sits there.
It is not actually being used, and will only come into play in case of a crash,
to be able to create a dumpfile.
So changing it's location or shrinking it will have no effect what so ever on performance, let alone solve the OP's problem.

Greetings

Edit: FYI, I have the pagefile totally disabled, which I don't recommend for everyone.
