So, lets start with Hello. I would appreciate any help on the subject. The problem: I've recently bought this awesome new gaming computer (specs later on) and I got some new games on it such as; Crysis 3, FarCry 3, Payday 2, The Witcher 2, and on. After about 10-20 minutes of gaming, I start noticing lag spikes in the game as in - momentarily FPS drop, which are pretty frequent, but aren't extremely massive that freeze my screen, but in irritating little stops of 0.05 secs every other second. they are eye-noticeable but I have no idea how to better describe them. Now to my (pretty much what I think is awesome top 5% world computer) SPECS: -Intel(R) Core(TM) i5-3570 CPU@3.40GHz (4CPUs) 3.80GHz. 16.0(GB) RAM. 64x. Win 7 Home Premium SP1 NVIDIA GeForce GTX 660. my screen is Samsung's SyncMaster T190. I've monitored my computer's temp using HWMonitor, and nothing seems too high. the CPU keeps going on +- the same temp while gaming and while not. Thanks for any help !
