did you uninstall the previous drivers? If not you must do so before installing a new card, this can cause the problems you are having........google for drivercleaner pro........it might be found on this site somewhere

Your Pentium 4 may be bottlenecking your video card, battlefield 1942 is fairly cpu intensive,

and 250fps is pretty bad.... Do you have CCC forcing AA and AF, maybe vsync on?

His CPU could not be bottlenecking it that bad. I have almost the same setup and get at least 40fps at 1600x1200 with all high settings.

My guess would be that turning UP the settings would actually offload computations onto the graphics card, and hopefully aleviate some of the intensity on the processor.

I would run a battery of benchmarks from Memory bandwidth tests, to CPU tests to 3d06 (for GPU) and 3d03 (for CPU test) and see waht numbers you get. Maybe we can narrow it down to one system.

I find that ATiTool FPS rather low.
Mine's at about 240 FPS, so yours should be way higher.

Before you install the latest drivers, use DriverCleaner to get rid of all traces of your previous drivers

Try it on the 1280 x 1048 (or higher if you can) resolution, it sounds like your cpu is holding you back.

No the psu is not the problem. The CPU is. It's not 1942 either. He's playing 2142. I pretty sure its s driver problem. Get the Catalyst 6.5 drivers but forst get Drivercleaner and clean all the Ati drivers twice at least. Then load the new ones.
