When playing World of Warcraft (WOW) my computer freezes, for other games not so much. What really surprised me was that i could play oblivion forever without it freezing and yet a much more simpler game like WOW makes it freeze. I checked the temp. to see if it was over heating but ones it got to about 46-48 Celcius it stayed there pretty continuously. I was also checking the CPU usage and it was staying between 50% to 80%. I have no idea what is wrong, i updated my driver and also reinstalled it. I checked my registry, looked for viruses yet nothing is working. Please Help.

Thanks for the trouble, :whistling:


Motherboard Name: MSI K8N Neo2 Platinum (MS-7025) (5 PCI, 1 AGP, 4 DDR DIMM, Audio, Dual Gigabit LAN, IEEE-1394)
Video Card: RADEON X850 Series (256 MB)
Ram: 2GB
CPU Type: AMD Athlon 64, 2200 MHz (11 x 200) 3500+
