Gee, I wonder why it runs ****ty. 100mhz fsb processor.. Your processor is horrible and I'm not entirely sure how you plan on running one of the most stressful games ever released at "Very high" and 1280 x 1024 with a 2.4ghz processor. The godamn game chokes on a 9800xt at that level with a 3.2 800fsb processor. Try lowering your settings to something a tad more realistic.
For example: Everything on high with shadows at medium gets me 50 / 60+ fps at 1024 x 768 with a 2500+ athlon oc'ed to 2.3ghz, 512 pc3200 and a 5800ultra.
I think its his FSB that kills him more than his proccessor, Either way, I dont think his settings are realistic either,
Heck gouing from 133 to 166 FSB gives me about a 7% performance gain on my system. FSB makes a huge difference.
