Are you having video stuttering, sound stuttering, unplayable framerates? What specific sort of issues are you having here?

Also, is the card you listed a 9800?

Finally, what graphics/sound settings are you playing the game at? Have you tried lowering these to gain some more performance?

No its a 800X pro, iam getting alot of FPS trouble, iam playing the game full out on max, Half-life 2 can handle it, Day of Defeat : source can handle it, The Half-Life 2 : Lost coast with HDR can handle it perfectly aswel.

Ah, an X800. Have you tried lowering some of your settings just to see if that solves the problem?

Have you verified that you have all the latest drivers for your hardware?

We have some changes coming into Wednesday's patch that should help alleviate this framerate issue. Please wait until Wednesday and let us know if you still have the problem after the patch. Thanks.

When I first had a problem with HL2 if you use a huge paging file, when playing SIN:E load a task manager click View, Update speed and select performance, play the game and it will say the peek.

Then I made a paging file static just loads more than the Source engine needed and the stuttering went down a lot, maybe a reduction in Thrashing and such.

Hmm. I'll have to try that. Currently, I'm actually running with no paging file; while it's fine for most of the game, with 1.5 GB of RAM, the docks are FPS-drop heaven. [img]/forums/images/graemlins/mad.gif[/img]

From my guestimate, Source needs more than 1.5 gig of Memory, so when it runs out it is stuttering by Thrashing pages in an out of memory.
