I scanned my computer with the the Ad-Aware 2007 and the AVG Free Edition and nothing came up. i also have the zonealarm running. its pretty enoughing but i guess i can deal with it. i defragmented my C drive.


I tested DOD after and it's still having the same issue- fps spiking from 10 to 80 / freezing during game play. cpu usage spiking up and down from 20 to 100 sometimes staying at 100... "cries" lol

My bro got my to lower my fps max to 40. i seems there was to much room with fps_max 101 so if its at 40 it stays pretty consistant.. its no freezing or spiking crazy anymore.. i guess this is a temporary or final solution.. he also said ATI sucks or he prefers NVIDIA.. i probly should of went with NVIDIA. they only had the one i bought the Radeon PCI X1300 one at walmart.

thanks for help. if you have any other ideas as to help me out just reply ill check up later.

Well that's good, we're glad it's sorted :wave:

I just wanted to point out that ATI doesn't suck, both companies manufacture quality graphics cards. I currently have an ATI, and it's great. I am looking at upgrading, and just changed my mind from ATI (again) to Nvidia. Either way I choose, I know I'll be getting a good card.

Cheers :)

You buy a cheap card you get cheap card performance thats your wallets fault not ATI.

One obvious thing nobody has asked is this original DoD or source, Source will need you to lower or increase certain settings to get an overall lower but more stable FPS, old DoD then get yourself a driver update and turn of AA(ATI cards sometimes dont like it on older games).

It likes them pretty well you just gotta be a little more careful with them, turn all the settings up but be wary of AA and turn on Vsync, allot of old games were openGL that ATI cards weren't as good at in the past(there used to be a divide that manufacturers specialised in better performance with different technologies). Try turning on Vsync I find it really helps on the older games you also want to limit the FPS if you can to nothing higher than 50 or 60.
