the EC runs like crap on my gaming system? Is it a compatibility thing? Overkill? The EC on my laptop runs circles (literally) around the EC on my gaming system. No issues with any other games I've played on the gaming system. Specs below Gaming system Asus P6X58D Premium Intel i7 950 Sapphire Radeon HD 5970 Mushkin DDR3 6 Gig RAM WD Caviar Black 1tb OCZ Gold 850 Dell Ultrasharp 3008WFP Windows 7 64bit Nothing else running in the background Laptop Lenovo T410 Intel i5 2.5ghz 8 Gig RAM SSD drive NVIDIA 3100 Windows 7 64bit All kinds of crap running on the background I've run full screen, windowed with the window bars removed, I've reduced resolution from the native 2560x1600. I can start the client fresh on each system and on the gaming system when i run it's very choppy, the laptop virtually no chop at all.
