  1. Just got BF1942. I think its performing terribly consdering my system specs.

    R9600XT
    P4 2.66
    512 ddr pc 3200

    Even with what i consdier to be quite good specs, playing Bf1942 even with just 100% bots the game becomes a slide show. Plus i sometimes get big striped lines across the landscape (are these called artifacts?) I have the latest cataylst drivers and my hd is defragmented. Although i havnt got round to sorting out my pagefiling yet. Could that possilbe be a reason for such bad performance?

    maybe its because u set ur pagefile too small? how big is ur pagefile exactly?

    set your pagefile to 768mb, leave your memory usage and processor scheduling to programs. i think your pc didnt like it because you altered the memory usage to cache. and then make sure AA and AF are off or set lower.
