    I recently reformated my system. Reinstalled everything. went to play ut2004 today, and it runs like crap. frame rates are good about 75% of the time, but every few seconds the framerate froms from 60 down to about 4-5 :tears: . Tried out morrowind, and it does the same thing 2. However my aquamark score is the same as before. Im using the newest omega drivers. Any ideas wtf is happening?

    Did you remember to reinstall your chipset drivers?

    it definately sounds like a driver issue. how long ago since you upgraded your drivers? did it start happening the same time you upgraded?

    Nforce for Nvidias motherboard chipset, and 4 in 1 Hyperion for VIA:s chipset. If you have an AMD prolly that is. Intel also have the same kind of drivers but i don´t remember their name. :-/
