    I have massive ammounts of screen lag and cant get it fixed. I know it has nothing to do with my connection because i have the same exact problem on condition zero (singleplayer). It alwasy plays fine for 2 minutes and then lags real bad for about 30 seconds.

    Specs:
    Windows XP Home
    1.8 GHZ P4
    512 RAM
    80 GB
    Sapphire Radeon 9800 Pro

    Any ideas?

    Thanks,
    tiny

    Could be alot of things. Make sure your HD is defraged and more RAM the better for any gaming. :) Also could be you need to tweak some settings but since it happens on both on and offline more apt to think its either HD fragmented or its swapping from RAM to HD.

    I have been having a few problems with the latest catalysts myself, but no kind of lag, what versions are you running?
