    An nvidia chip as I expected .. I've had same problem ( but not only in games ) and until the 40.72 was released my pc was a nightmare .. seems that 40.72 realived my system ..

    I recommend for you to install first the latest drivers for you videocard ( especially those from Gainward - these are optimized for you card ) and if not try the latest from nvidia ..

    waiting news . . .
