Just out of curiosity

So I just built a PC for the first time and slowly started tossing better and better games on it. I just put Portal 1 and 2 on it and noticed that Portal 1 occasionally gets a little choppy. Portal 2 runs amazingly smooth. How is this possible?

GPU - Sapphire hd 6870
connected via HDMI to a 52 inch Sony Bravia 1080p that has a 60hz refresh rate.

CPU - AMD Phenom 2 x4 965 black edition @ standard clock

Like I said this is mostly a curiosity but I would really like to figure out why this is the case.

are you running of SSD or hard drive? if hard drive assuming u purchased the games off steam try to defragment cache files by going to library right clicking a game click on properties then going to local files and if that doesnt work not sure
