Bottleneck ?

I have a P3600EB 133fsb chip, 256mb SDram and a GainWard GeForce 4 mx440 128 mb graphics card which plays Call Of Duty in glorious colour at a decent speed and seemed to play Wolfenstein in a similar mode during a brief test.
However, when playing MOH:Breakthrough, although graphically nice, when I am in a scene where the action is intense and in the desert, for example, the game 'stutters'.
Is MOH more demanding than similar games, or do I have a bottleneck ?
I am upgrading to a P3 1GHZ chip shortly, will this help ?

Yes, the P3 1GH will make an improvment; couple it with another 256mb RAM and you should see a vast improvement.

Having said that, I know nothing of games so it may well be a case of MOH (Medal of Honour?) needing more resources....

I have all these games. I have a P4 1.9, 64mb g/card. I don't have any problems.

I have Ti4800,AMD 2600,1.0gb DDR ram,all my games work flawlessly until I get asked to install DX-9.Then games often "freeze" momentarily.I have tried DX-9/DX-9a/DX-9b,and both my fav racing games display this behaviour.

I will try the chip and throw in the extra memory and see what happens.
