Anyone loaded the new 6.5drivers for an ATI 9600 card? Seems like I now have higher CPU usage, near 100%, than before.

Not sure why you would be experiencing that unless there's something else going on. I have the 6.5 drivers with my x800xt and everything's working fine. Did you use ATI's catalyst uninstall tool before installing the new drivers?

When playing HD only or SD as well? Check Task Manager to see what process uis consuming the cpu.

I did use the uninstall tool. It seems to be the 3D shell. That is now running over 60%. Didn't happen before, was around 20-30%. It is happening in SD and HD.

Not sure bud. I have a Shuttle ss56 1.0 with 1 gb ram, and a 300GB HD with 100GB free. I'm not seeing this on mine. How are your other system resources (Memory, HD space). Maybe it's working harder because you're running low? Just guessing.

They just announced BTV 4.3. Try installing the update and see what happens. I'll be doing it tonight myself.
