This is no harddrive swapping issue. I get the same with my ULTRA. Sometime the image freezes for up to 5 seconds. No throttling happening. This happenes at any clockrate.
ATI cards DO run better than nvidia cards.
I know i read Official forum crazy stuff going on there , but i don't get half the problems others do , one thing for sure EQ2 is very CPU intense so be sure to get fast CPU.
You mention pouses for several second i only had that first day of EQ2 launch never happend again so.... those reports might be old and lag related actually. Only stutter i had was harddisk related.
