I HAD the same CPU and a similar GPU. I did not get 200 FPS. Now I have a i7 4790K overclocked to 4.6Ghz with 2x 280X in Crossfire X. I still do not get 200 FPS (160 Maxed-out to be fair). Methinks someone is overstating their framerate. In any case, it sounds like your CPU is overheating and therefore under-clocking to protect itself. NS2 is one of the most CPU intensive games outthere and your symptons lead me to suspect you need to dust out your CPU and other fans.

That's what I got out of all the posts so far 1) Yes, you can enable Multithreaded Physics. This will help improve frame-rates in your end-game of a round (when tons of stuff is happening and FPS seems to tank). Quad cores can see up to a 20% FPS increase in this worst-case scenario, with Dual-Cores up to 15%. The reason this is off by default, is that it's still experimental. We had a few issues during playtesting but those were all resolved. But we might have missed something - we need people to test it and give us feedback 2) If you have a 2GB Card, set it to the 2GB Option. If you find you're still hitching a little on texture loading, set it to a lower setting until you find the best one for you. Note that the lower setting you go, the more you will notice texture pop (where the texture loads in the High-Resolution one over the top of the really low-res one). Your FPS SHOULD remain smooth throughout this though which is the most important change.

The guys over at Techreport have shown you'd need to write an average user's amount for 35 YEARS before your drive would start to fail from writing. http://techreport.com/review/25681/the-ssd-endurance-experiment-testing-data-retention-at-300tb And there are various other articles via google you can find. Basically, as long as you're not writing over 1TB a day, you're going to be fine. Install NS2 to your SSD.
