i just got a new 9800 pro installed, and i was expecting games to play very well. However, counterstrike experiences frequent, but very brief slowdowns. The fps stays at 100, but it seems as though everything freezes for a fraction of a second, or something to that effect. Nothing catostrophic, but very annoying with an expensive card. Additionally, other games seem to have similar problems. Any ideas? 3dmark seemed to run alright, btw, and i got a score of 5278 in 3dmark03. My system is athlon 2000+, 512 ddr ram at 333mhz, asus a7n8x, sblive 5.1. Thanks!
