BF3 is known for stuttering for just about any imaginable reason, including stuff (...) video driver issues, solar flares, moon phases and so on...
Thank you JohnC, your comment made my day
Reading the BF3 and EA forums didn´t help, for the reason you wrote too: their issues got never resolved. Believe me, I read so many threads that I got bloodshot eyes. I played FC3, Dishonored and CSS, non of these made my rig lag.@puppetworx
: moving the graphics card to a different slot won´t work, I only have one on the mobo. Except if I´d try to force it into a PCE-e slot.
I don´t think the memory would be an issue, I had the same problems with my old HDD as well, and -as mountrack wrote it too- it came out of nowhere. I use WiFi with a USB-Stick with antenna. I haven´t try port-forwarding yet, I´ll check on this one. Still, what on earth has changed that makes it necessary after a year of gaming? @Khali
: I don´t run it anymore. I used to, but I had to reduce my overhead expenses, so I stopped after a while. So no, no background programs are running. @mountrack
: I´ll check the drivers of the wifi-stick, although I´ve already installed the proper drivers when I reinstalled win7. What exactly did you do to see if yours working fine?
