Setup:

Athlon 64 3500+ 939
1gig Corsair XMS DDR3200
BFG 6800 OC
2 IDE HDD's
500w PSU
abit Av8 with k8t800 pro

Ok so I notice this most in the game TOCA race driver 2. It happens regardless of detail settings. When playing the game is plays fine for like 30secs at a time and then there is always this like quick .5sec video freeze while playing. It isnt large but it does interput gameplay and would like to fix it if i could.

Any Ideas?
Thanks

Turn off fastwrites in your PC bios. If you don't have the setting in bios, use rivatuner.

What sound card? If it starts with Creative, I'm going to blame that. Seriously though, I think it is sound related. Try turning off sound or reduce the hardware accelleration slider way down to 1 tick above off just for a test...

its the integrated mobo sound, ac-media or somethin, could that be cuasing it? It almost seems like its a background app or something causing the stutter but it happens to often to be that....

Could be the sound. Run the game with sound disabled just to test. I mention it because I had ToCA RD2 stuttering once, and it was the sound card. What it did more than freeze up was feel like it would warp forward, then slow, then warp.
