I suppose it's the video cards fault. Because when I move the mouse on the screen while playing the game (in particular Sid Meyer's Pirates and Guild Wars) the sound start to tremble and the speed of the mouse movements slows down.

My system is a pretty powerfull one. Enough memory and hard drive space. So i'm totally confused right now. I tried to reinstall both video card and sound card but it doesn't help. Anybody, please help. I really want my computer to function correctly again.

Thanx in advance

if the 5200 grapics card could have come into conflict with your motherboard due to the backaward compatability of a pci to agp bridge (and their is no agp expansion slot on the motherboard IF IT IS A PCI CARD YOU ARE USING and you get a blue screen wobbly graphic display check this by moving a page from side to side if it is wavy then your graphics is not up to the job.

Check the bandwith speed compatability of your memory modules ddr
you should be using a PC3200/400mhz 2x512 dual channel.for stability dont mix speed rates.

If your m/board supports sata raid then I suggest that you upgrade your hardrive to a
ST3300831AS Seagate 300gb @72k/rpm with an 8mb cache and use one of the other hd as a backup and probably upgrade the graphics card as your system appears to be slowing down by some form of incompatability or you can try and upgrade your graphics driver.
