Ok, so I just got a new SATA II HDD. I put it in my machine and installed BF2 on it and I have seen an insane performance decrease. On single player and multiplayer my fps will drop to 10-20 when not looking at a wall. My old HDD was an IDE 40GB. I am wondering what the problem could be because BF2 ran great on high settings before I got this new HDD. Specs: Athlon 3700+ Sandiego @ 2.5GHZ ASRock 939 Dual SATA 1 GB RAM @ 450Mhz Geforce 6800 16x1, 5vp This is a fresh install of XP and the only programs on the HDD so far are: Norton Internet Security 2005 BF2 (updated to current version) AIM Updated Nvidia Drivers Windows SP2 Mobo sound and ethernet drivers. I think I may try to just reinstall BF2 and see if that works. Maybe it was updating it with the new patch because on my old HDD I did not have the patch... Any suggestions would be appreciated.
