    I've been having a lot of freezing problems playing EA games for some reason. NFS:MW and BF2. I've somewhat narrowed it down to ram since I've done every possible thing I can think of to fix it (including reformatting and updating ALL drivers)

    So I ran a utility that comes with my mobo, nTune. And it tells me that my memory is not up to par.

    My RAM is Corsair XMS DDR400.

    I've been racking my brain and am completely exhausted as to why these two games continually freeze each and every single time. It would piss you off too if you spent over 4k on a setup to have it only freeze all the time.

    Help me out fellas.
