stuttering sound/low fps on level startup

 	When I typically start a level either through instant action or 
online, the sound seems to stutter a bit and the framerate is very low 
until I have "looked around" and seen most of the new environment (and 
possibly the textures?).  I'm guessing that some caching must be going on 
which is causing this latency.  Has anyone else run into this problem? I 
typically play Onslaught maps but I've noticed this to a lesser extent on 
Assault and deathmath maps.
