my problem has nothing to do with securerom, widescreen or anything like that. My problem is that the game suffers incredible slowdown when major fights occur or I go into large rooms (going from a reasonably speedy 60-70 down to 25 in a hurry)

My System Spec is
AMD X2 4200+ Processor
2GB of Ram
8800 GTX
X-Fi Fatality.
Vista 32bit
Is Run at 1280x1024

I have updated drivers for all of my hardware Aug 2007 Direct X. Anyone know where I should go next?
