    i decided recently to give my computer a little upgrade. I went out and purchased quite a decent Nvidia graphics card (EN210 GeForce210 512MB) and and extra 2GB DDR2 ram to add up to 4GB

    but my CPU usage is quite high most of the time and always makes this roaring sound even when im doing basic stup like watching streaming flash videos and playing flash games!

    its have seriously become extremely annoying. is it because my video card is too powerful for my motherboard?. what are my options? buying a crappy video card?

    Or is it because my RAM is too powerful? if that makes sense.. (from 4gb i have removed 2gb)

    here is my computer specs:

    Main Circuit Board b
    Board: ASUSTeK Computer INC. Berkeley 1.xx
    Serial Number: MS1C7AR70501076
    Bus Clock: 333 megahertz
    BIOS: American Megatrends Inc. 5.11 09/27/2007

    Processor a
    2.33 gigahertz Intel Core2 Duo
    64 kilobyte primary memory cache
    4096 kilobyte secondary memory cache
    64-bit ready
    Multi-core (2 total)

    Memory Modules c,d

    Slot 'DIMM0' has 2048 MB
    Slot 'DIMM1' is Empty
    Slot 'DIMM2' is Empty
    Slot 'DIMM3' is Empty

    thanks for the help!

    Can you provide the motherboard model number? (Serial number doesn't help for Asus products). Also, what is your operating system?
