So I recently decided to ditch the Mac for the first time in my life :O In favor of building my own PC! So alot of this has been quite headache to understand and grasp switching from something I'm so used to.. But a whole lot of fun! Anyways, my rig basically consists of:

MSI 890FXA-GD70 AM3+ 890FX Motherboard

Gigabyte GV-R6950C-1GD Radeon HD 6950 1 GB 256-Bit

Corsair Vengeance 8GB (2 x 4GB)

AMD FX-4100 Zambezi 3.6GHz (3.8GHz Turbo)

Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO RR-212E-20PK-R1

Window 7 (64bit)

So I've been having problems with lag in games such as Saints Row Three and Dirt3. I was told to use Prime95 to run some tests on my stability, and to my dismay - none of the tests work for more than 1 sec frown.gif It says things like "Execution halted" or "workers stopped"..
I'm not sure if it's a hardware problem, but my computer hasn't crashed and can run Skyrim very well, and I can use use other programs fairly well too.

Could anyone help me out? I have no idea what to do hahaha

Thanks in Advance!!!

I don't know about Dirt 3 but Saints Row 3 has had many issues with FPS performance from Nvidia and AMD GPUS mostly when driving wheres theres lost of lag (It's been an addressed software issue). So you shouldn't base you computers performance level on software with reported bugs.

Keep the 600W, Corsair is good and all but if you can take it back do so because 600W is plenty to power your system.
