One thing that may or may not help some is simply defragmenting the partition that you have Doom 3 installed on. The install for the game dumps quite a bit of non-continious data on your hard drive. There's also cache settings within the game's config file that you can screw around with that may help, though personally I didn't get any real results out of that.
I defragged my drive right after I installed the game (probably should have right before I think, but whatevah).

I'll try dropping the quality setting down a notch. Would it help to have more ram? Or more video ram?

Both would probably help. What quality settings do you have it on? High works best on 256mb cards. It seems that with enough ram though the problems are minimized (although I don't really understand why that is...unless theres so much data that it has to swap with the hard drive some).

I'm getting white flashes on the screen now, i think it may be somthing to do with one of the pak files i put in the base directory.

Oh, and the entire first scene with the pinky demon is amazing, the polish in the game is really great

I predict post #666 will open a rift from hell, and this forum will be invaded by viscous Japanophiles and Nintendrones.
