im running the game at 1024x768 with everything high except for motion blur and light trails turned off.

im avg'n around 30 FPS, sometimes it drops down to 20 FPS, i find that very weird, slow for a 9800 np, however my 3dmark03 and aquamark3 scores seem normal

3dmark03: around 5,500
aquamark3: around 39,000

P4 2.6 w/ HT
768MB @ 333Mhz
ATI 9800 (380/310)

AA/AF could be killing your fps if you got them maxed, maybe. Also, do you have the lastet drivers? Could be that.

I have the latest drivers cat. 3.9

How do I turn off AA/AF?? There is no in game option that turns that off. In the display properties settings AA/AF is set as Application Preference

right click desktop, properties, settings, advanced, direct3d and openGL tabs

but your sig should be able to run it fine with AA/AF

I'm running it 1280x1024 2xAA 16xAF and it never drops under 30fps in my stock 9700pro.
Your system should be able of running it much faster. I'd try a system defrag, it sometimes helps a lot.
What about your MoBo drivers? Are they up to date?
