I put together my own PC's, the one I have now is running on Windows XP Home. I have all the latest sound and video cards installed and up to date drivers, with a 2.4 GHz CPU and 2 GB memory, Now, when I play a video game it jerks as if the refresh can not keep up. Where is the problem? is it in the BIOS, CMOS or windows itself?
I would like for once use this for what it is intended, gaming but it jerks,

1.) Ensure XP is updated with latest device drivers 2.) Ensure latest chipset & motherboard drivers are installed 3.) Check USB drive, and USB port 4.) Boot up with any Linux OS Boot up disk and check if USB is working 5.) Install Windows 7 in case new drivers not available on XP
My guess is that amount of memory and that 1ghz psu you have, i asume that you running XP, gives you the best you get.
When you instaled that card, the card tok all of the resurses there where left, XP itself need at least 230-240mb of memory to run.
But i dont agree whit you about its hard to get PC133 memorysticks. Its easy and they are cheap.
