Hi all I have upgraded my computer to the above processor and now I have an annoying stutter on games. From what I can gather this seems to be quite common but I can't find an answer to it. My full spec is: AMD athlon x2 3800 processor Asus A8NE Motherboard Gigabyte 7800gtx gpu 1gb ram 300gb hdd I have installed all relevent, latest drivers including the one for the processor. Any help appreciated.
That doesn't seem to make any difference. The symptoms are more like the system's trying to run something in background and slowing the game down. However, the only change i've made is the processor and I didn't have a problem before.
Thanks for these. I had seen the microsoft link but was trying to avoid messing with the registry. Guess I'll have to try it. Thanks for the 2nd link I'll follow the advice. Ulrich I think the processor is ok as it only affects games. The psu is oem 350w.
