So had issues with Bulletstorm not working so update my Cat drivers from 11.9 (it worked with all my other games so no need to update) to 12.4 (newest at the time) but still had issues. Found out the drivers also caused graphics lag ingame video and game it self and didn't fix the problem. Found out main issue with Bulletstorm was a bad install by steam.

Sadly even after removing 12.4 and putting 11.9 back in all game still will have video lag spikes. Every thing stop though audio continues, be it ingame or video playing ingame and then it goes again. Sadly Notices also in all my games now the sound also started to do that as well, video/game keep playing but audio lags. Both don't happen all the time but are enough to be very annoying, or cause me do die in FPS.

Any idea what may be causing it, since it only stated after updating my Cat drivers.

I did notice that when it did update the driver the CCC was say it was 11.9, thought updater was say all thing were update to 12.4.

Try enabling software rendering. In internet explorer > tools > internet options > advanced > put checkmark in "use software rendering".
