make sure your drivers and direct x are up to date, and hard drive is defragged.

but overall, it probably is a memory issue, try shutting down some background apps, and your antivirus while you game.

no thank you, one thing I will not do while playing games is turn off my Anti-virus, just simply won't.

My RAM will be here tomorrow, I'll stick it in and load up BF2 and tell you all how it goes =]

If you use a low resource antivirus program, then you really can't tell the difference between having it running and not having it running.

I currently use Antivir Personal Edition. It's resource usage is just so low, and yet it works so well.

I don't know why people say that, but it doesn't increase performance. Hard drives are slower than RAM, by 20 times or more.

what's better is more RAM and less (or no) paging file.

perhaps I am doing something wrong here. I disabled the paging file and my physical memory just filled up to 99% and everything became extremely slow.

This is what I remember it doing in XP 64 when I had 3gb of ram as well.

TBH I can't imagine the system being more responsive than with 4gb ram. Somehow it's even satisfying exiting and alt-tabbing a demanding game like Crysis/ET:QW and not having to wait for the system to become 100% responsive again.

It shouldn't do that. Find out what applications or services are eating up your RAM, and kill them.

I can do that with 2GB RAM, on XP and with no paging file. My system is very responsive.
