What is 'low'? First decide if its 'bad' or somewhat 'normal'.

I have a strange pattern of performance in the ut2k3 engine, and games based on it. The engine seems to be highly cpu dependent, with ~10 fps gain or loss from max texture / resolution settings down to min texture / resolution. I range from 5 - 30 fps during fly-by benchmarks.
Ge 4 ti4400, P4 2.0a on i850e chipset at 4xAGP, 512mb rdram
no difference in using agpgart vs nvagp.

Americas ArmyOps runs ~10 to 30fps on large outdoor maps, 50 - 70fps on smaller urban maps.

In ut2k3 console: stat fps

I did have a significant improvement in performance (it was worse!) from compiling alsa from cvs and replacing the sound module installed by the game. This is mentioned in the ut2k3 release faq.
