    Hi guys, I am facing the following problem:

    I load up the game run it ok, not really going after extravagant resolutions just a 1024x768 no vsync no bloom blah blah.

    The thing is after 3-4 mins of playing the game slows down into matrix time lol while at 1st I can go around and play super l33t one shot kill dude then I am like I just got out of general hospital lol.

    Is it a processor problem? I tried the fixes for the duo cores and the graph tweaks but nothing happened.

    My rig is:

    Intel core duo 6600@ 2.4 GhZ
    2GB RAM ocz (2 sticks of 1GB each)
    74GB raptor + 2 240GB HDs
    7600 GT by nvidia.

    I face the same trouble with GRAW.

    What power supply do you have? Also, check the heat of the GPU/CPU after a session of gaming.

    Not totally related, but not completely unrelated I've been noticing a similar problem.

    When I play Vegas for a extended period of time (3+ hours) the game starts to get lower and lower performance to the point where it's almost unplayable.

    I have to restart the game in order to fix this. Just speculating but I believe Vegas has a memory leak of some kind somewhere.<div class="ev_tpc_signature">

    i suspect ac***ulative slow down, perhaps memory and cpu related problems as this game has not been running as well as i've first bought it.

    How big is your swap file? And it should be permanent in size too.

    Power supply is a thermaltake at 750W I dont think it is what causes problems. Besides the thing slow s down only on GRAW and R6 Vegas. All other games, DOOM, BF2, Splinter sell DA etc play on high performance settings.

    My swap file is 3070MB-4000+ on a raptor HD, manually set.

    but check your CPU temp while playing, though. this game is CPU heavy than most of games.
    especially if you are OC'ing, expect temp rise 5-10c above any other games would reach.

    It also might be Nvidia's "wonderful" auto-throttling of the fan speeds which also effects in-game performance too.

    You might have to use coolbits, or Riva Tuner to manually set your fans to 85%-100% usage at all times to avoid dips and slow downs.

    Also, I believe there is still a memory leak as well and have reported it to the devs since it was supposedly fixed in 1.02.
