Default Weird FPS lag on a Crappy Game.

4gb Ram
3.4ghz Quad Processor
1gig ati HD 4890
Win XP Pro 32bit
1TB 7200 RPM Harddrive raid-0

When i play combat arms I randomly get FPS lag and it drops down to like 10 fps.
I noticed that any placable item makes the fps drop ( medic packs , autoturrents and etc)

I have reinstalled windows, reinstalled the game, defragementing, checked my cpu/mobo/gpu/HD tempatures , installed the latest drivers and patchs, disabled anti-virus and firewalls, checked for virus's/adware, checked processing errors and benchmarked my system.

This really doesn't make any sense. Why would a piece of crap game like combat arms cause the game to lag? I can play MW2, Just Cause , Battlefield BC2 and other more graphic intense games with high settings and stay above 40 fps. I can play on any resolution in ca with low/med/high detail and it will drop the fps into the teens.

Is sync every frame on? I used to have that problem with call of duty.
It would cap it at 60.
