I have a p4 2.8ghz 512 DDR ram with a 40gb and a 60gb hardrive and a Radeon 9200SE, why do i get a lag effect in Battlefield Vietnam on single player instant mission even when settings are on low. My system is clean as you can get, and i am almost anul when it comes to removing spyware etc, so why does it lag! I have exactly the same system in another part of the house except with a Gefore 4 MX and it runs fine... Is it the graphics card?

Thanx, CustomX

Well if everything is the same, I'd say it would be the graphics card. That video card is a pretty low performance one. Have you tried the 4.9 catalyst drivers ?

You have a lower end Graphics card that is one cause of leg. Also you could do with a bit more Ram. Update your graphics card drviers if you have not already. Finaly when was the last time you defragaed your harddrive and what is the size of the page file on the Harddrive that contains the game. A page file is used by the system like physical ram. If the page file is to small that might also cause decreased performance.

It is definatley the Video card. I have the same video card. plus when you play single player, your computer has to not only render the bots, but it also plays as the bots, which takes up more ram, and CPU usage.
