    When I play a game I see frequent pauses and tearing in the game. I tried turning Vsync on, changing my resolution and getting the new drivers but it won't help. Can someone please help me???!? :confused:

    My specs are:

    Asus ATI Radeon A9600xt 128MB
    512 MB RAM
    1x 40GB HDD, 1x 80GB HDD
    Pentium 4 2.0 Ghz

    P.S. For some reason I see no tearing in Max Payne and Max Payne 2...

    If you don't understand what I'm saying, I'm trying to say that the game lags every second... i.e. When I go and play something like Counter-Strike and I run past a tunnel, I see me going forward and then slightly being pushed back and my framerate drops for a split second and then goes back to normal for a second and then happens again...

    Please help me I'm begging you guys!! I can't play a game normally now this keeps hapenning!!! When I had the nVidia GeForce FX 5200 this kept happening as well... Please give me suggestions!!! T'would be really appreciated. ;) (y)

    What CS are you playing? CS:Source? your computer might be too slow to really run that game smooth. If you read up on the CS forums that many people have lag problems. Maybe try and get directx 9c people say that helps. I was running a 1.6 p4 overclocked to 1.9 with 9600 pro and for the most part it was ok but not smooth from lag as like the CS 1.6.
