I didn't really enjoy the multiplayer side of STALKER, I just what them to improve upon the single player. Hopefully these patches will iron out some of the bugs for that.

My X1950pro plays this game terribly considering it was made for PC.
On the other hand playing stalker using the 8800GT stopped all the performance issues I was having previously.

I'm running STALKER on a Q6600 stock with X800SE. And it runs very smooth. However, the lighting option needs to be at default. Turn it up, and the poor GPU chokes. However, the graphics are still good even at default settings.

Stalker graphics look good you say? I thought they were kinda rubbish looked a bit backwards compared to other games, anyway thats not what the game is about. I get crappy frames on this game dunno why tho as i have a decent system its not like they are unplayable when all put up high, i just think i should be getting over 100fps and not 40fps sometimes.

You have some problems with your setup Kieran.

1./ 3GB RAM? If that is 3 sticks then you are probably running under speed. DDR requires 2 identical (or 4 identical) RAM to work dual channel double data rate

2./ Your AMD 4600+ is a great CPU, but a poor cousin to a Q6600

3./ I'm not sure how many assets are on the HDD, but I have a Samsung F1 SATA with 32MB cache. Your slower 250 with 8MB cache might also be causing you the slowdowns.

4./ Your GPU setting might include dynamic shadows. Try turning that off. While it does look better, it is a combination of CPU and GPU stress to render that. And your CPU definitely cant cope with those. All other features can be high. (dial back FSAA, AA if necessary. I prefer to use NO FSAA, AA but run it at a higher resolution to compensate).

Ive got a relatively weak X800SE, and really, the game is 100% payable and in fact quite smooth. Patch v1.005 needed.
