    I have noticed a similar problem with planetside and my 9200SE...

    I believe it has something to do with the game not being able to properly adress the AGP bus, look and see if mafia has an update patch and install that. If that does not help then in the ATI controll pannel goto "smart card" (i think) and turn AGP acceleration to off. Restart and run the game that should make the game run better, but remember to turn it back on for other games...

    Hope this helps...
