My game was lagging in cantinas for some reason until I updated my drivers. Now it runs on max perfectly :>

I have this PC:

Athlon X2 5600+ 2.8 GHz
HD 5770 1GB GDDR5 (CCC v 11.12)
Win XP

I run the game with everything on high, no shadow and bloom (1600x900)
I get stable above 30 FPS

Yesterday I had a similar problem as OP. I created new char (a Smuggler). My FPS dropped to below 10 FPS whenever I started moving and I got constant stuttering. This was first time I launched the game after downloading small patch yesterday.
It turned out that restarting my PC fixed it and I can play the game again with constant above 30 FPS most of the time.

My PC:

Q6600 (2.4)
HD 6850
DDR2-800Mhz 4 GB

I have 60 fps all around on 1680x1050, all on high with shadows off, however on warzones it's 10-20 fps..

I wonder if it's problem with game or my rig. I'm thinking of buying new motherboard with 8 gb ddr3 ram, but will that make a great diffrence? on this rig wz's should be ok, but changing to low settings doesnt change fps.

Any suggestions?

The same issue here.
Beta was fine after the game launch it started to freeze.
What did i try:
1) Switched AA, dyn lights, blaster effects off in settings.ini.
2) Switched all graphics top and all graphics low. it didn't affect framerate and freeze periods.
3) Doubled RAM
4) Updated directx,drivers and installed .NET framework4.
5) Switched swap off(totally), game didnt take even half of available memory.
6) Checked for overheat my cpu dont go over 60 degrees celcium
7) Clicked repair client
One last suspision left that this happens because i have WinXP(i hate wiin 7, that made by asshead idiot for same people and dont have any normal administration tools)

So here is my question what OS do you have?
Because installing dumb windows 7 is something like herecy for me.

lol at someone using win xp then complaining when a modern game in 2011 has issues.
No comments.
Win7 is actually great for gaming. Get with the times.

Win7 is awful for gaming, Ubuntu emulator is twice faster
Known win7 issues:
Huge memory leaks(up to 1.5GB after 3 hours of work)
Uncofigurable protocols.
Firewall that could be FULLY disabled only by files replacement from side sources(oh really? services? open process list after it and be surprised)
and many-many other 'nice' things, like babooine that messed all menus to make them look 'not like xp'.
This is the system for 'modern' stupid kids, that trust in Billy.
And facts are little different, benchmarks run at least 20% faster on XP.
So silence, kid, you should learn what you writing before writing it(if you born after Win7 release this doesn't explain you ).

Still asking people that have issues:
What versions of OS do you have? With builds. And version of DirectX.
