My computer is good :

Windows XP
radeon 9800 pro
Asus P4P800 motherboard
Intel 4 CPU 3.20ghz

He did . My best guess is bottlenecking of some sort. Is your mobo 4x slot? I ran my radeon 9800 on a 4x and it ran good for a lil then it started getting delay of movements too. This stopped when i switched to an 8x agp slot.

If you have an AGP slot which you do since you have a radeon 9800, its either 4x, 8x, or 4x/8x. What computer do you have? Or what motherboard do you have (this would be more helpfull).

What kind of RAM? Have you checked system temperatures using Speedfan? (http://www.almico.com/speedfan.php) Have you installed any new software prior to it doing this? Are there any programs in the Task Manager using abnormal amounts of resources?

I have 2 chips of kingston 256 MB PC3200 DDR (400 MGhz). Used memory is at about 170 Mo when I close programs to play. I downloaded speedfan. Temp2 indicates 62 degrees with a flame symbol. Didn't install anything before it happened.
