    Ive maintained it pretty well and nver tweaked..the only thing i did was switch the two case fans on the bottom to blow air in and added another fan on the back to blow air out. I've also noticed some wierd things happening to the vid card. right in the middle of a game it would freeze--then the monitor would go into suspend as if the computer was off but i would still hear the music in the game. I cleaned up all the background processes that would start up when when windows did with msconfig. and the score didnot improve
    Please help this is really bugging me

    I would suspect you ran it with different settings each time, such as high performance originally, and high quality now.

    Or you have AA or AF on.
