Personally I haven't had that problem.  But then, I maxed out my hardware when I got this machine and I don't intend to do any hardware upgrades for some time (I think the most I'd do is add another stick of RAM, or swap out the current 2GB and replace it fully with 8GB - no need to SLI the 8800GTX yet)
