    I just recently built a new computer
    Pentium D 920 2.8ghz Stock
    2gb OCZ DDR2-800
    XFX 6800gs pci-e
    Seagate 80gb s-ata
    450w psu

    The computer ran all games flawlessly on all high settings for about a week, when problems arose and all my games stuttered and cpu usage went up to 100% in game. I was looking at other forums and discovered an issue called "DPC" and was wondering if it applied to my situation and why is it doing that. Is it due to the drivers or faulty hardware?

    You're going to have to explain more.
    But first I would suggest doing something that would eliminate some of the more possible problems. Run Ad-Aware, Spybot, you anti-virus scanner, ScanDisk and Defrag and in pretty much in that order, for sure the last 2 should ne ScanDisk and then Defrag.
