A bit of back story. My old Pc was a dual core AMD @ 2.8ghz and a 4800 HD radeon gfx and 6 gig of RAM. My new rig is a AMD 6300 6 core @ 3.5ghz and a 7870 radeon and 8 gig of RAM.
When I got my new PC I installed ST:O played a mission and then logged off because I had so many more games to install. There were no issues with the game, non at all. I log in a couple of days later and the game is stuttering. What I mean is, when ships fly past me they jerk past me. It is not runnign smooth and I don't understand why because it worked prefectly before.
I tried putting all graphics settings to Off/low still this has no impact. My cpu says its at about 40 - 50% usage, which seems fine to me.
What could it be? I have tried re-installing it 5 times now. It's frustrating.
