Default Need help with a problem

have new PC and my specs are down below and every time I play Guild Wars, After 10 minutes of play it starts getting very bad lag and starts skipping. I can play counter-Strike source and F.E.A.R no problem.

I have the latest drivers and updates for everything.

Please help
Thanks

first off reduce your sig to 5 lines. second that's very odd, the system in my sig runs guildwars on max settings very smoothly. try lowering the settings and seeing if you still get the same results.

maybe it's a problem with the dual cores. try setting it to only cpu 0

task manager>right click guild wars process>set affinity...>uncheck CPU 1


...see if that'll do the trick
