Anyone like to comment on this "issue". Half Life 2 has a little stutter on my PC - the speech seems to get stuck (like a record) for a second or two then correct itself. I installed it on a non-OS disk (I have 8 hard disks in my PC & only 2 are raid) and it got stuck. I removed it and installed it on my 2 SATA Raid disks - better, but still it occured. I have a P4 3.2 ghz, 1 GB Ram, 1.2 TB Hard disk, 5900XT Graphics card and a SB Live! soundcard (Not the onboard one, which is disabled). I have no Viruses, no Spyware and I've removed all the messenger type progs etc. My immediate thought is it's the graphics card not being fast enough. I tried lowering the resolution - but I'm not getting any graphics lag at all - just this occasional st-st-st-stutter. Any clues ?
