I've been busy at school and I haven't had much time to play my PC games. I started to play Homeworld 2 today and was surprised at its performance. Every few seconds of gameplay the game hangs for a few seconds. I tried Doom 3, same thing. It seems like its a video card issue because the textures are jumpy in HW2 and the lighting is completely messed up in Doom 3 (in the cutscenes especially everything is dark). I realize this may be driver related but I updated drivers and performed a roll back, neither of which helped (GeForce 4 Ti 4600).
Any ideas? Time for a new card maybe? Some setting I'm overlooking? I've defragged hard drives, scanned for viruses, spyware, etc. that doesn't seem to be the problem. Thanks for your help.
