I cannot figure it out. It's driving me crazy. Under some 3D games or apps my graphics are jerky. For example, it's jerky in Unreal Tournament and during my aquarium screen saver. I read something about changing the options for my NIC from autosense to the right one. That's didn't work. My agp thing is set to 128 in the bios. I have the latest *official* ATI drivers. I tried the new betas but that didn't help. It ran fine before I did a format. I have no clue what's going on. Any help guys?

Check for everything running in the background. Check your startup folder, your system tray, and anything in your *.ini files that may be running stuff you don't need or don't even know about. You might also want to scan for viruses and/or adware/spyware.
