View Full Version : Stuttering in Games?

11-06-05, 07:08 PM
I recently just upgraded to an amd64 3000+, Soltek SL-K890Pro [I love it too all around feature rich/stable board], 1.0GB GEIL Value RAM, Sapphire Radeon x800PRO PCI-E and a 19" monitor that does 1600x1200@85hz, 1280x960@100hz, 1024x768@120hz etc.

I run my desktop at 1280x960@85hz. Is there any reason I should run at 100hz or keep at 85hz? What about games? I'm a FPS freak...not a quality freak... What the hell is ATi AI? How can I disable AA/AF? This is my first ATi card since an ATi Radeon 64MB DDR VIVO AGP lol...and im lost. Half Life 2 stutters like hell...I enabled triple buffering and it cleared up a lot...

I'm just wondering what setting are optimal in my situation mostly.

The AI are the optimizations. If you installed the CCC version of the drivers you can change the level of AI or disable it.

HL2 stutters for a lot of people and it probably isn't a card specific issue.

I can also disable AI through ATITrayTool....should I leave it enabled or disable it? I've read about that half life 2 issue but thought that could be a particular setting or combination of settings. Maybe these people all have common settings that they could change to improve the stuttering or etc. I seem to have improved mine to almost seeing no stuttering at all.
