hey, is it normal, even on 2gb of RAM, for Source to stutter a little when you first join a game? i don't mean stutter constantly or anything but like when you turn or first kill someone it stutters a little?

i assume it's just your pc loading up all the parts of the map and stuff?

If it only starts right at the start of a map, then it'll likely just everything getting cached still, wouldn't really worry about it if that's all it is.
Not sure on anything that'll help cut it away, there's probably a command to do something, but I dunno myself.

i heard this is to do with EAX sound drivers or something. I notice it usually when i first connect, but also if there is a massive explosion it sometimes 'lags' too. Like it freezes for a second whilst the CPU seems to struggle rendering the sound or whatever. Pretty pants really considering my spec!
