Why does this game have such unplayable stutters. I have an E6600@3.2Ghz with 4 gig ram, and Radeon 4850 And this game is the only game that stutters and not just light stutters. The stutters are sooo BAD that it can make the car crash at high speed as by the time the screens updated you have lost control of the car. I have so far tried at screen modes of 1680X1050 and the next mode down that is native to my monitor 1280X960 (I wish my Samsung 2032bw did 1440X900 natively)Which made no or almost no difference. I'm on the verge of returning the game to the shop, as here in the UK you can return games that don't perform well under the 'not fit for purpose' sales of goods act. The staff through a little wobbley but the laws the law.

Unfortunately, that is an issue with the game that plagues even the console versions - occassional freezes that get worse when there's a lot going on onscreen.

Thanks, At least I can return it knowing it really is the game and not that the game doesn't like my controller or video card.

You can eliminate the stutters on the 360 version by installing the game on the HDD.

Hmm..I don't have any stutters at all with a q6600 and 8800gts, 4G ddr-800 and xp64 bit. Your proccesor is fast as well. Perhaps a defrag?

Defragging works wonders - as well as updating your graphics drivers. Note that if you're using a branded system (HP, etc) may be work checking out their support sites for drivers.

I prefer ultimate Defrag using the "High performance" option. That plus Nhancer and you can get a lot of performance out of a system.
