I don't know much about Athlons, but I'm willing to bet that it IS your video card.

What RAM are you running? It could be a combination of a lot of small bottlenecks but I see the video card as your main one right now.

It shouldnt be your video card. have you defragmented your drive recently? updated the drivers? virus scan?


Also use this site to see if you pass the requirments. americas army should be on there
http://www.systemrequirementslab.com/referrer/srtest

if you pass the benchmark then it is definitely not your video card

Ive been out of the game for a while, but I know Sound Blasters used to decreased FPS. Not sure anymore. Possible, worth a try to play it with that disabled.

to use onboard sound.
