Choppiness in Unity Editor but not on Build.

Hello I recently upgraded my Windows version of Unity from 3.2 to 3.3. I started a project on a MAC using 3.2. and Copied it over to my PC since my PC has a nicer graphics card and such. I noticed that when i click the Play button the movement is extremely choppy. Even the music gets choppy and seems to slow down in playback at certain points.

However, if i output a build from the PC 3.3 i runs perfectly like it did on the MAC 3.2.

Any ideas what might be the problem? Do you think it could be a hardware thing? I have my drivers updated and everything on my PC. and my project is not that complicated and runs perfectly in the Editor of my MACBOOK, so i'm not sure what's the problem.

At least the build versions work fine.

Well, if you run your game inside the editor it will always be a bit slower than as a build version, but it shouldn't be that different. If you upgraded your project maybe you get some runtime errors and the console-log gets flooded, that would cause such "lags". Can't think of something else at the moment.

thanks! I actually ended up reimporting all assets which cleared a lot of it up. The music doesn't choke or slow down like it did but there is still some weird screen tearing and jitteryness which i find odd bc my FPS are well over 400. but I think that's just normal for now. and my MAC is 64 bit and has 4gigs of ram so my pc might be a bit chocked up with that.
