Re: Everquest 2. I think I may have a partial solution to stuttering.
aaahh chris, your a legend, 3 things i have done to improve my settings, actually 4 are as follows.
1. Follow the gfx guide on soe website, it is very helpfull (i previously thought yeah yeah i know what im doing)
2. Install 66.81
3. Turn off virtual mem (may only be suitable for people with more than 1 gig)
4. Try chris's trick
edit: hmm im not really sure if chris's trick solved the problem, but i do notice a huge performance in framerate right after SOE resets their servers.
