Huh?

Are you serious...............:confused:

System Idle Process is NOTHING.

It means the system is doing nothing, it isnt actual a process.

Its just a pointer saying "THis much of your CPU time is unused."

What merlin said.

If crysis is leaving sys idle at 98% then apparently it's more vid/gpu driven.

So that's where I'd suggest you start hunting for your lag prob.

But if this in online lag then it may well be net related, many games will lock/lag

with bad ping/packet loss because the game hangs waiting on verification that

your last sent packets wer recieved.

Ohhh, and the net is kinda hosed up today too.

Sounds like the game is pushing your graphics card to melting point.

Go to your mobo driver website and find a GPU Temperature Tester. I'm betting your GPU has shut it self down a little which will induce lag (buffered graphic processing) to cool it down.

Alternatively open your PC case and fire a desk fan at it.

Can also clean your PC, get a mini hoover and clear out the dust from fans especially around the heatsink of the graphics card etc.
