Default Random Lag? (S.T.A.L.K.E.R mainly)

So, I just bought stalker through steam because of the Halloween discount.
for whatever reason i seem to go perfectly with no lag then it will start to lag for up to 30s
(it happens in all settings except max, because i can't really run max lol)
I've noticed this in a few other random games.
any ideas?

It would help if you posted what GPU you have.

So... try turning down the graphics? Maybe you'll lag less.

it happens on every graphics setting

I've got a Nvidia 9500 GT graphics card

and btw the lag will start and stop
like I'll go fine for a bit, then lag for up to 30ish secs, then back to norm, and repeat.

Does it have this problem even when you don't run the game?
HD Tune website <-- download and run this, check the health, you can also do an error scan, make sure it isn't the harddisk getting cranky.

is it FPS lag? (Everything runs but uncomfortable to look at)

What were the other games it happens in? And what kind of lagging?

I've had something like this before, it might be your computer struggling to load the environment as you go through the game.

By every graphics settings I'm assuming High Medium Low etc. Lower the resolution. Your video card is quite weak for gaming.

The lag is almost like a freeze, it just slows down horrendously.
I used HD Tune, it said everything was fine.
and, no I don't have this problem when there are no games running.
I'll try lowering the resolution in a little bit and post results.
I've seen this happen in games like shaiya ( rarely ) and Minecraft

any suggestions for a better cheap-ish graphics card? mines already probably between 1-2 years old :v.

edit: lowering the resolution seems to have solved the problem, thanks

The 9500GT may be old but it is hardly weak. I had one myself before I got my 5750 and it was able to run everything I threw at it(Metro 2033, Crysis, etc) while keeping all the eye candy on high while staying between 50-70 FPS.

You can try disabling your antivirus when you run games and see if it helps.
Or just add your games folder to your antivirus exclude list.
You should also close your browser before you launch your game.

You can also increase the shared graphic memory to your integrated graphics assuming you're using the AMD's onboard graphics. (This may backfire if your game uses too much RAM increasing it to 512 is a safe value.)
EDIT: Oops didn't notice you have a graphics card.

I thought he mentioned 1920x1080 somewhere. I guess not that. I meant that it's too weak for that resolution, seeing how lowering resolution solved his problem.
