    I have added my specs to this thread.

    Issues
    Sense I had this PC I have had video lag and I have been on every forum you can think of. No one can help me, I am fed up and trying it again. I have taken this PC to "geek squd" all though they could not help me. No one has been able to help me. Everyone says there is no reason I should have video lag. Please dont assume I have not tried every logical fix IE re DL drivers, flash, restores, different browsers, different settings, if it relates to a simple fix I have tried it. Im fed up so far that I want to destroy this thing before I smash my face into it!. Please!!!! someone help me... I have 3 years in CIS, and I am 27 years old. I have been around computers everyday of my life sense I was 14. Im by far not a NOOB. Im not an expert but I know my way around and I know what GOOGLE is. Trust me I have spent HOURS AND HOURS of my time trying to find the problem to this issue.

    The lag is horrible. Below 15FPS during any movement in any game, browser, downloaded, online, not online, you name it, If its a game theres video lag. I have no latency issues. Every now and then latency may peak to 250ms then go back to around 30-50ms. I am currently playing a browser based MMO and the video lag is unbearable. I can watch any full length streaming movie, youtube, hulu, any show on network websites and I have NO problem. Only in a game, I played wow for 1.5 years on this PC and had the same issues but it wasnt so bad. 15-20fps most of the time but its worse now and I dont know what the issues are. Please someone stick with me till we find a solution! So many forums I have went to and the people just disappeared on me.

    Btw Im using FireFox, Google Chrome, and Safari

    Please anything you need just ask me. I want this fixed.

    also added my pc specs to my profile. so click the computer by my name.

    Are you using a good quality power supply?
    A value power supply can cause lots of issues.
    p.s.
    A GeForce 9800 GT requires a 400W minimum power supply.

    Well, If it were me, I would think it either a bad power supply not giving the video card enough power or it's a bad video card. Or the CPU. U can check this one the easiest. When you play those games, is your cpu maxing out? (U can check with the task manager's performance tab.) I'm not an expert, but these are what I would suggest.

    As we all know Vista is a very bad OS. i suggest to dual boot xp and still if you have the lag there may be some other problem.
