Hi, I've got a self built comp with a AMD Phenom x4, 8gb mem and a Geforce GTX560 graphics card. Im trying to play the new COD game but the longer I play the slower it gets, it ends up so jerky that I give up. I've done a clean re-install of Windows7, de-fragged and just about everything I can think of but nothing seems to work.....help.

Sounds like a,heat problem , weather its the GPU , PSU or CPU is the issue . Im sure you have already given the internals a thorough clean . You could try cleaning off old heatsink paste and reapplying . Also how full is your drive ?

Ok, thanks but I think it's my internet speed, I will give your hints a try but im always cleaning the insides and its a new hard dive with not a lot on it, the heat thing might be something I need to look at, thanks for your help nickf
