    Hmmmm.... Sounds like:

    A) That guy was full of s*** and trying to sell you an extra mobo

    B)You need a nother card, as 5200's just really suck (how long have you had it, can you return it?)

    C) In the meantime try tweaking your system and BF1942. If you have XP, check out the Windows XP reformat to relax guide here . If you want more XP tweaks or if you have another Windows operating system, go to www.pureperformance.com as they have alot of good tweaks too (some are repeats from the guide tho). Tweaktown also has a BF1942 guide here .

    I dunno, I've fully tweaked my system (which is over 2 years old now) and, granted I have 768MB of RAM, with my Ti4200 I can play BF1942 maxed out with everything on (as in 1600x1200 w/ 100% detail). My CPU is only 100mhz faster than yours anyways. The only time the game slows slightly is during a huge explosion because my CPU can't handle all the particle effects: no worries. If I were you, I would def look into more RAM at the moment, and see if you can exchange that 5200 for a Ti4200, if not a Radeon 9600Pro or 9600XT. Happy tweaking, : peace2: Mista K6
