What resolution and level of AA/AF? Depending on the load on the card it can fluctuate sometimes.

1920x1600, and I was running with 16 X QSAA, but that was at 4.


This card should be loafing in TF2, and that graph was pretty much what I was seeing in game.

You think this may be driver related, or am I pushing it to hard. The default core clock is 576. The temps are always around 70 on load.

No still happening when the default clocks. Gonna try those leaked drivers. Maybe that vista memory hotfix I installed is the problem.

I will do that, but don't expect anything that resembles an intelligent response. I imagine they will probably blame it on rivatuner.

Default Re: Is this normal?

I had some strange performance issues with Source games a couple years ago.

I fixed it by reinstalling steam.

You might want to try that. Just move your steamapps folder out of the steam folder, uninstall, then download and install the latest version of steam and move your steamapps folder back so you don't have to redownload all of your games.

Its worth a shot.

Deleting the game config files might help too (I think they're in the steamapps folder with each game).
