I have an Athlon XP 2800+ and a GF4Ti 4200 until I can afford a big, red card . Every time I come close to a large amount smoke in a game--Medal of Honor, GTA Vice City, Halo, Max Payne 2, and Star Wars: KOTOR most of all--I see a noticeable drop in framerate. In all the most games, it's not too bad, but in SW: KOTOR it turns into a slideshow. Is there any way to disable or change how smoke gets handled at a hardware level? Some of those games give me some way to disable it, but some don't.
