I am having a problem and it is just happening when i attempt to play certain online games like World of Warcraft, Counter Strike, and Planet Side. Have not tried with any other games. Pretty much I can actually get into the game and on my character, but about 20-30 seconds later the computer just freezes or runs amazing slow. I was able to alt tab and check my processes under alt+ctrl+delete and it showed my CPU usage at 100%. I am forced to manually reboot at this point. This problem has happened continuously when I try and play any of the games. I have tried rebooting, downloading the most up to date drivers for my video card, buying a brand new video card, and scan disk. I am not sure what else to try.

Also this new video card was working fine with the games until about 3 days ago, ran them perfectly for about 2-3 weeks. The video card I had before this one started giving me similar problems that is why i replaced it.

p.s. first time posting here so if anything im forgetting please let me know

if your CPU usage is so high, there's more going on than just the video card... did you try defragmenting?
