You need to make your computer as efficient and fast as possible. Go to blackviper.com and tweakxp.com (or is it xptweak.com...can't remember) to learn how to eliminate all unnecessary background programs and services plus other tips to increase the processing speed of the computer. Make sure you disk clean and defrag on a regular basis plus use freeware spyware removal programs to get rid of all spyware. When playing the game shut off all programs in the icon tray... I even shut off virus protection. This all will make a difference. Some overclock their video cards but I don't. Hope this helps.

You can always increase the priority of PF when in game. after shutting all the unwanted programs down in task manager. start PF and when the process comes up right click on it and increase the priority to high. that usually gives it a big boost. however, it sometimes decreases the performance back down to normal.
