  1. Hi I just upgraded my old system
    3800+ dualcore @ 2400MHZ
    1.5gb ram

    When I play games eg: Need For Speed Most Wanted, GTA San ANdreas or Never Winter knights

    The game tends to speed up sometimes.

    I will be playing GTA and I am walking the streets then all of a sudden It's like I am running 2x speed of running.. then it goes back to normal speeds...

    The clock in GTA goes faster too.

    same things happen with the games I wrote above.

    Please help..

    Try running CPU killer to slow your system down a bit when playing older games.
