For some odd reason, when I am displaying plain old text using the drawtext method and it really takes a bite out of the framerate. Is that Normal? Thanks alot Robert

Yep, this is normal.

The DrawText uses the GDI, and is not related that closely to the 3d rendering pipe so it''ll flush.

It''ll be much faster to use textured quads.
