Many games I play are stuttery, (run at a fine fps, but pause randomly every second or so). This happens both when running a native game such as Amnesia, and a game through wine like LoL or WoW. Occasionally I can stop Amnesia from doing it by restarting it and turning SSAO on and off repeatedly, which is a bit weird. I am using the proprietary Nvidia drivers (nvidia-current, the beta ones aren't compatible with my card). Here is the output from
lshw -c video
*-display description: VGA compatible controller product: C61 [GeForce 6150SE nForce 430] vendor: NVIDIA Corporation physical id: d bus info: pci@0000:00:0d.0 version: a2 width: 64 bits clock: 66MHz capabilities: vga_controller bus_master cap_list rom configuration: driver=nvidia latency=0 resources: irq:22 memory:fa000000-faffffff memory:e0000000-efffffff memory:f9000000-f9ffffff memory:fbec0000-fbedffff
How do I fix this issue, or is my GPU just not good enough?
