Default americas army performance issues

Hi I'm pretty new to Linux, but am learning more every day.

I'm running Mandrake 10
AMD 1.2
Gforce FX 5200 128
640 RAM

My performance w/ glxgears seems to be pretty good at 1250fps. My problem is when i start Americas Army it drops to 7 - 25 fps. I'm not sure if this is normal, but is quite a bit lower than in windows xp. Plus i have all settings on ultra low in linux. Any suggestions on how to improve performance would be very much appreciated.

My XFconfig-4 settings are.
