    have you tried turning down the graphics detail in the game?

    First of all; if there are any EAX sound settings in the game, disable them.

    Getting new video drivers for your graphics card might help also.

    Sometimes EAX messes up games, my specs are higher then his, and EAX still screws games up, it's not dependent of the specs.
