    I was playing black ops the other day and the game locked up and booted back to my desktop with a error message stating something to the effect that my 3d memory was insufficent. Ran the game the next day and was able to lag through it like normal without crashing the game.

    What is it? where is it at? what effects it? :ie photos games ???? There isn't alot of games on my pc, however there is a ton of photos stored, but it shows I have plenty of memory.

    Not very pc savy so go easy on me. LOL

    You ran out of video ram.
    The lag when it works is most likely due to memory being paged in and out of video ram because you are out of space.
    Reduce your settings or get a card with more ram.
