I've been having a noticable reoccuring problem when playing newer dx9 games. It will only run smooth (60 fps +) about half the time no matter where I am at in the game, the other half the time it runs at a little less than 30. It will randomly happen and it's not accessing the HDD when it happens. I have tried all different driver configs and even a clean install. I don't know what to do becuase it should run these games like it does the good half of the time but it doesnt. What type of problems would cause this in games? I almost seems like a hardware problem because it still does it after a complete format and reinstall. If it were a hardware problem youd think it would run slow the WHOLE time and not half though. The games are still playable but running below 30 fps really annoys me especially when its random. I've also tried running the games on completly low setting with no luck. I really need help with this guys, any and all input please!
