Either that or it could be that the game cant sync its game play speed with the system clock. Many old games have that issue where the hardware is so good that the game actually runs fast, like hitting the fast forward button. This could be affecting you.

If you are going XP, get pro, there isnt anything Home can do that Pro can't, why get a lesser product?

Eh, its like 50$ more.

Its an old game, it just happens that way. Having over 300FPS is like hitting the fast forward button, litteraly.
Oh well.

So you'd suggest pro over home, what does pro have in such great advantage compared to home?

Better networking functions mostly. Pro doesn't like to talk to xp home pcs on a network and vice versa though, not sure why, its always been a pain. Pro can see home, but home cant see pro.

This is what Wiki says:

Windows XP Professional offers a number of features unavailable in the Home Edition, including:

* The ability to become part of a Windows Server domain, a group of computers that are remotely managed by one or more central servers.
* A sophisticated access control scheme that allows specific permissions on files to be granted to specific users under normal circumstances. However, users can use tools other than Windows Explorer (like cacls or File Manager), or restart to Safe Mode to modify access control lists.
* Remote Desktop server, which allows a PC to be operated by another Windows XP user over a local area network or the Internet.
* Offline Files and Folders, which allow the PC to automatically store a copy of files from another networked computer and work with them while disconnected from the network.
* Encrypting File System, which encrypts files stored on the computer's hard drive so they cannot be read by another user, even with physical access to the storage medium.
* Centralized administration features, including Group Policies, Automatic Software Installation and Maintenance, Roaming User Profiles, and Remote Installation Service (RIS).
* Internet Information Services (IIS), Microsoft's HTTP and FTP Server.
* Support for two physical central processing units (CPU). (Because the number of CPU cores and Hyper-threading capabilities on modern CPUs are considered to be part of a single physical processor, multicore CPUs are supported using XP Home Edition.)[3][4]
* Windows Management Instrumentation Console (WMIC): WMIC is a command-line tool designed to ease WMI information retrieval about a system by using simple keywords (aliases).
