Be sure you turn off any other programs running in the background, especially any Anti-Virus software (this is a known problem for many people) and/or Instant Messaging (MSN, AIM, etc). Also be sure you do a manual update of Punkbuster.

Crackling sound is sometimes a soundcard conflict. Some people had Realtek audio issues and had to update the drivers for it. I know you already mentioned updating your drivers, but that was an effect from it.
I am assuming you are on low ping servers?

Well it can be a number of things. my first question is are you going through a router?? Also it could be that u are losing packets. When does your ping spike? like when a grenade goes off next to you. because your computer might not have enough resources left. so u kinda like overload your cpu and it can cause that. Also make sure all background programs are off as Whiskey said also if u have mutable accounts on your computer log them off?

He isn't alone, I got the same problems ever since I installed 1.5 from 1.4 now for a week. At first I thought it was an isp issue, being that I play via satelite so I figured I'd give it time but every day is the same nonesense.
To conclude this, I use to play this game flawlessly before 1.5 came, now it is like every 5 minutes I am in the stone age ping wise, being retardedly high. Even searching servers after this ocurs, the pings are massively high in the thousands! I don't know about FPS loss though as I never bothered to check.
I've tried running with out xfire, yim and anti virus but there is no effect. The ping just jumps as I've stated. I'm beginning to feel that this is a patch issue...
e6600 + 2gb 1066mhz + 8800 gtx + 680i mobo + creative sound card etc etc... I suppose I'll go update my vid drivers right now but as I've stated earlier, everything ran smooth and just fine on 1.4 patch everything set to maxed out. Now I'm lucky to play a round on 1.5 with out this BS.

James ill try monitoring your ping on vent and see if it fluctuates in that as well.. If it's fluctuating everything, I'm thinking it is an ISP issue.. the same issue for me
