When i play halo, i's always very laggy and slow. My system can take games like Half-life 2 so im sure it's not my system's problem. So is it just me, or is this game really badly made for PC? it's great on xbox but really bad on pc Does anybody else have really slow frame rates and stuff? here are my specs: AMD Athlon XP 3200+ 1GB RAM (2x512mb) Nvidia Geforce FX 5200 Cinema Edition 120GB HDD

The FX5200 is not a gaming card. You need at lest a 6600gt/9800xt to run it smoothly with all the goodies. To get alot better performance: turn off specular and dymanic shadows(they slow it down alot) Use a resloution lowe than 1024x768 I run it with a 6800gt 1280x1024 and every once in a while I will get a slow down. Rember, this game was the first to use direct x 9.0.
