    Starcraft plays smooth mostly (singleplayer game) , but frequently it runs choppy for a few seconds. Even when other programs are not running, and it's the same if i use the starcraft disc or not. Why is this?

    What ISP do you have? Do you have a 56k Modem, Cable, DSL, Highspeed? Have you updated all of your drivers?

    Have you tried re-installing SC? And is it "choppy" only when you're online?
