Most likely the old Driver Extension limit problem. Can be fixed with nHancer (create profile, add the driver extension limit value 11a8)

really, awsome. thx for the tip, i'll give it a shot. now if only nHancer could fix source

Update:

United Offensive players,
after i installed nHancer, and forced openGL 2.0, and openGL "general compatibility" it runs 10x better!!! it stutters a tiny bit once in awile, but my fps never drops below 75 fps. that's my max refresh at 1600x1200. give it a try. the game is playable once again

Did you also set the Driver Extension limit to 11a8? That's the most impotant setting for MoH.

You have to select "Coverage Sample" on the left side to get all the new CS AA modes like 8x, 16x and 16xQ.

nHancer can't force a resolution, I'm afraid. There's just no way to force a game to use another resolution.

But maybe you can force that resolution by editing some config file of MoH? I don't play that game, but I'm pretty sure that there are some people who can help you with that!

This is with 8800GTX - 97.44 and 97.02.

I can also confirm that this is happening.

Spiderman 2 PC has a completely black screen for 3d. Menus work fine.

I get this also (with the 97.44s). Haven't tried any others. I have Painkiller and Painkiller BooH installed (and patched).

Thanks Grestorn, I wondered why my performance was choppy in the game. This fixed it.
Also, thanks for nHancer, great program. I particularly like being able to restore profiles after installing new vid drivers.
