I am experiencing game "stuttering" or stop-action moments. They seem to occur when there are lots of 'planes in the sky, especially amid heavy flak (off-line, that is) How do I eliminate this? My stats are as follows:
CPU: Pentium 4 - 2.60Ghz
RAM: 1.00GB
HD Memory: 80GB (+/- 60GB available)
Video Card - Nvidia FX5700
OS - WinXP Home Edition w/Service Pack 2
Game: FB+AEP+PF v3.04 /Open GL / 1024x768
Most of my graphics and video settings are moderately high, but less than "Perfect".
I am a neophyte when it comes to setting up a computer, so please excuse what must seem a pretty simple question.

Try getting a quality board. The fx5700 isan entry level board and really not for serious gaming. You've probably heard it b4, you get what you pay for!!! Radeon X800XT platinum!! best card i ever bought and worth the 500 bucks!

The Nvidia 6800 GT's aren't too high right now and are probably the best for the money.

Ah yes, the good old theory that the solution to most of the world's problems is upgrading hardware....

Some other things that don't require spending money that may help:
-defrag the hard drive
-lower sound quality settings
-adjusting video settings and parameters
-lowering some video quality settings in control panel or your vid card config area
-make sure virus programs aren't running
-close unnecessary tasks that are running
