  1. I just bought Left 4 Dead last night installed it and started playing, but everyone so often the game freezes up for a sec. But in the time thats their no freezing the game runs smooth. I'm pretty sure my computer can play this game at some decent settings, especially the recommended settings they preset. Any ideas on what could be doing this.

    Specifcations:
    AMD Athlon X2 6400+ 3.2 GHz
    2 GB of 800 MhZ Corsair Ram
    500 GB Harddrive
    BFG 9800 GTX 512 MB
    Windows XP Professional SP3

    I have exactly the same issue, running on a stock Dual Core E4500 and 9600GT

    K, I figured it out, PCIGamer go ahead and turn the multicore render off and I bet yours will run fine.
