Default Correct performance for 5900U in HL2??

I have a GeforceFX 5900 Ultra, 1 gig pc3200 ram, Abit Nforce2 Ultra mobo in dual channel, and Athlon XP 3200+.

I know it only runs in DX8.1 for Half Life 2, but I seem to max around 50 FPS with 4x antialiasing and 4x anistropic filtering at 1024x768.

The problem stems from the fact that a friend has a slower computer with a Geforce4 ti4200 and gets higher FPS than me.

What is going on here?

Vsync maybe? And I'm sure the ti4200 is not using 4x AA and 4x aniso btw...

Well I had vsync disabled even thought it syncs at a refresh of 100htz, so that shouldn't be the problem.

Also, I am using 66.93 WHQL drivers and WinXP.

f* as much as I love the Ti4200, it can't even pull off 4xAA and 4xAF in Quake 2...
