That is expected, I noticed that too when I fired up an old box with 98 in it and installed BF to it, it ran quite well. XP is a ram hog, Perhaps if you push your system's ram up to 1024MB, you should have similar performances. I hate Windows altogether really, I only use Windows just for the games that need it these days, I'm often using NetBSD and Linux :)

hi DekerBSB and derFuhrer,

I do trust that you updated your drivers when you installed WinXP? I am running winXP with an onboard creative chip (CT5880) and get 100 fps in some places with a GF4 MX440. Although your sound probably worked with the old drivers after you installed WinXP updating to the WinXP drivers is really a must-do not an option. If you look around you will find a number of threads here about sound cards, and without exception everybody who upgraded to the audigy think that's the best thing they ever did. Oh yes, and ram, I run 256Mb DDR with WinXP Pro. 512 is optimum and I will be ungrading soon, but 1024 is just overkill.

:cya: :cya: :cya:
