My specs are:

AMD 4200+ Dual core
nVidia 7900
1gb Ultra high performance OCZ RAM

Problem is, after i put in my new (better) harddrive, and i'm now on a new partition, im not getting over 150 fps in Call of Duty 2 like i was before. It's fine for about 2 minutes when i enter a server then i wont go over 120 and when i fire a 44 or tommy it goes down to between 75-80. Now your all thinking of basic stuff. So I made a list of what I've done to try to fix the problem.

1) Made sure I'm not in DX9
2) Made sure vsync was off
3) Made sure i have the latest drivers
4) Made sure everything was set right in my driver menu
5) Downloaded and ran the AMD Dual core optimizer
6) Reinstalled drivers
7) Put in fps commands in Cod2
9) Turned all my settings down and up and all around
10) Set my affinity for my processor for CoD2

Please i need somone that basically knows everything or somone who has had this problem before. My xfire is mattguad if you could help me i would very much appreciate it. I should not be getting this low fps with my specs. My friend has the same specs and a crappier processor and he doesnt go below 200 fps. So please help.

Do you by chance have CD/DVD drives that are IDE and your only hard drives are SATA?

Tonight I found an HP with 2 gB of RAM that was slower than any of the old crappy systems that were in the shop. The reason was that the IDE drives weren't setup correctly.

In this case (and in my last system) the first IDE channel was set on Auto - with nothing connected to it. The CD/DVD drives were on the second IDE channel and set to Auto also. I suspect that the delay was that the system was trying to locate the drives on the first IDE channel and couldn't find them.

FWIW, we burned 750 mB of data on one of our in-shop systems (with lousier specs than this system) and it took 2.5 minutes to burn. On the HP it took 15 minutes to burn. After we put the CD/DVD drives on the first channel and instructed the second channel that nothing was there - the time went down to 2.5 minutes.
