I posted before but now after what i did to my system i am starting to wonder why this is happing. I am getting good fps but it seems when the game is trying to load another area or load anything the game skips. I got so fed up with this that i started to upgrade my system to see if any hardware is the problem, Here is my computer's new spec's: Two: NVIDA GeForce 8800 GTS OC 640mb DDR3 (if you need more info on the cards i do have GPU-Z) AMD Athlon 64 X2 6000+ (if you need more info i have cpu-z) LP UT NF590 SLI DFI Corp,LTD Motherboard DDR2 at 3gig OS is Windows Vista Ultimate X32 Service Pack 1 Build 6001 DirictX 10.0 The CPU and GPU are Cooled by Liquid Cooling. have a 32" Sanyo HDTV hooked up with a HDMI cable Resolution is 1280 x 720 x60 hertz PSU is 700w model oczgxs700 No matter how low i set the settings this "Skipping" still happens. I hope its just a setting. PS i would like some tips on overclocking my motherboard, many of the settings are rather confusing.
