is it normal for a computer to lag when the CPU is high?
I was encoding with handbrake today, i decided to go onto firefox, and the mouse and even trying to drag a window was lagging all over the place. Is this normal when my CPU is under a lot of strain, to make the PC lag. Shouldn't i be able to multi-task, or do i have to leave a extremely high CPU resource let it do its work?
