Hello this is my first Nvidia card ever its a GTX460 Superclock and im using it with windows 7 64bits.
All settings are default exept i turned on vsync and triple buffer cause i need em but now when i play a game or when i run 3DMark i get s suddent stop in the game that last like 1second on 3dMark and on games from 4 to 25 seconds and the game continues but later it does it again.I have only tried to set the Maximun Pre-redered frames to 0 but its still happening.What can it be?

leave all the settings default. Let applications decide. Forcing things for all games and apps can cause problems when a lot of those games and apps are trying to do the same thing.

not knowing your specs I'm suspecting a heat issue, but really you need to go to a dedicated forum for these types of questions.

At the very least start here...

and I'd check out your manufacturers website to see if they have a forum as well.

Download the latest driver from Nvidia and do a clean install (completely un-install current drivers and run driversweeper in safemode). Also what power supply are you running? What chipset is your motherboard running? What is your CPU?

I'd say download the newest nvidia beta draiver; currently version 260.89 which just came out and do a clean install, which it now gives as an option during driver installation, though I forgot the exact term they use for it. As it is superclocked it could be a temp issue. I personally set my fan profiles manually with the device settings section (in the device rules box). Most fans are set to be quiet rather than to be good coolers. For stability sake you can make your own cooling curve for the fan that will allow it to run much cooler in general than the default settings. In general just set it to get to 100% fan speed by 70 Celsius to avoid potential overheating issues that may cause the GPU to downclock itself for a while to protect itself.

I can't guarantee that's even the problem, but it definitely doesn't hurt to do if you can take the extra fan noise.

Oh, and as far as I can tell this game vsyncs automatically, so don't mess with that setting. Also due to the sheer amount of vram this game takes, I don't recommend forcing triple buffering unless you have a card with 1.5-2GB vram.

When I installed my new GTX 470 and played the game I was having the same problems as you. I re-installed windows and game and that seem to take care of the lag. If you don't mind re-installing everything,I would suggest doing it. I know it's a pain in the **** doing it, but it can solve your problems when you install new hardware.
