Viewport playback slows down over time

Hey, Im animating a simple scene (<5k polys) but getting unusual viewport lag. When max starts up, everything is fine playing at around 20fps+, but with a few minutes of working, playback speeds drop to as low as 5fps.. Normal viewport movements are unaffected (80fps+)

Machine is:
2x Xeon E5 2687W 3.1ghz
32gb ram
Quadro 4000
Cdrive - 180GB SSD

Running windows 7 64bit with Max 2012 64bit + latest update.

Any help will be amazing!!! I really cant stand this anymore!!

That's very odd, at 5k polys you should be getting way more than 20fps, a Quadro is supposed to be specifically optimized for things like 3ds Max.
