    There are a couple things I would investigate if I were in your shoes. First of all I would try the Nvidia Web driver for your current version of OS.

    It would be helpful to know some other system specs, and work flow. What version of MC are you running? What kind, frame rate and resolution of media are you using? Are you using much in the way of real time FX (Keys, Timewarp, etc.)? If editing DV footage, cuts only, one shouldn't notice any difference at all. If editing AVCHD 4K footage with tons

Does the bug repeat every time you try to edit the title? Do other titles cause the same problem? Have you done the standard stuff for corruptions
