My ati radion 9600 256 mb came with my new computer insatlled with the new 4.4 cat driver. I tried to play battlefield 1942 with little luck I could only use display settings at med and that was still very glitchy. I am working with a P4 2.5G Asus P4P800 SE with 512ddr on win xp ect. I have just recently deleted the current driver of cat 4.4 - 6.14.10.????. I then installed the driver 6.14.10.6422. from the CD shipped with the card. It appears to be working ok, I can run at setting high know but every once in a while the game still gets glitchy, you know walking freeze and you are 5 steps past where you were. So any word on another driver that may help me run smother then I currently am. Thanks you guys are great :) (y)

If this is your mobo :

Try updating the mobo Intel chipset drivers from Asus V5.0 :

or

the latest version from Intel V5.1 :

The Intel® Chipset Software Installation Utility installs the Windows* INF files. The INF files inform the operating system how to properly configure the chipset for specific functionality, such as AGP, USB, Core PCI, and ISAPNP services.
And of course I can assume that your hard disk is NTFS formated instead of FAT(32) for faster loading of big files like in games.

You could also try uninstalling ATI's Catalyst drivers and trying these alternative Radeon drivers. Some people seem to prefer them.

Quite a few patches have been released for that game:

You might also try different anti-aliasing settings on the Radeon. And moving the sliders for OpenGL and DirectX from the Quality to Performance ends will speed things up with (for me, anyway) no perceptible decrease in image quality.
