Hey guys,

AMD Athalon XP 2600+ Socket A
GeForce 6600 AGP
1GB PC2700 333
Antec 500W (35A 12+ rail)

While playing CS 1.6, I get semi-random FPS drops. At the exact time my FPS drops, the choke goes straight to 100, and sometimes my ping jumps. All 3 of these coincide, and when the FPS jumps back to 100, the choke and ping return to normal (~25ms and 0 choke).

Could this be a symptom of a HDD? I am using an old 40GB 7200 RPM Western Digital (Caviar?). The thing is, I just reformatted a few times, and the problem persists. Tons of different drivers used, DirectX updated, etc.
