I recently been playing alot of games, and I've been noticing this strange studder/pull that happens after very few minutes of playing, its so annoying it makes the games up playable. It happens no matter how high or how low the settings are, Also my cpu temp never goes over 65-70. I'm so lost and would really love some help, I've been messing with this for way too long and cannot figure it out for the life of me. Thanks.

Are you playing on a PC? Apple ][+? TRS-80? Android? Please provide full system specifications.

Edit: ...as well as what games you are playing.

sounds like your videocard is running out of memory. and 70 is pretty warm for a CPU. but agreed...without full specs we can't really tell. monitor resolution, CPU, RAM, game being played, videocard temps.

Monitor Resolution is 1680 x 1050 for computer

I also use a 42 inch Plasma hooked up to the PC for gaming 1920 x 1080

Its noticeable on both of them.

It rarely ever reachs 70 temp even with a game maxed out during the most intense scenes.

Check and update your sound drivers. Have you experienced any crashing, or just the slowdowns? For games to start out fine and then slow down suggests it isn't a problem with the adequacy of your hardware, but it could be a driver issue. Make sure you have the latest video card drivers from AMD. As a test, load the newest drivers ONLY, NOT CCC, and test. If all is well, add CCC if you want the features it offers, otherwise leave it off. Check your GPU temperature, and if it is getting hot (say over 80C) then blow the dust out of its HSF with a pressurized duster.

I was going to suggest that it's micro-stuttering caused by crossfire/sli but it appears that you don't have crossfire/sli.

Have you tried uninstalling your video drivers and then using "DriverSweeper" to clear out all traces of ATi drivers from your hard drive (do this in SafeMode for a complete erase). Then (re-)install the most recent video drivers for your video card again.

I've had something similar happen to me and it was my drivers.

Pretty sure all my drivers are up to date, I really try to keep up on that stuff. I will try the above tonight, thank you.

I actually use M-Audio FastTrack for my sound its an external soundcard for producing, now when I switch over to my TV it uses the sound out of my TV, could the M-Audio FastTrack cause any of the problems i'm having?
