Recent? Hardware from 2007 is not recent in the world of technology, every 6 months give or take it becomes outdated. Microsoft could optimize all they want for that card, but you see the limitations of it are set in stone. Software cannot fix that. (In anycase it is ATI's resposibility to optimize the drivers
and support for it, since they know the card better then Microsoft does.)
I also do not see why you are concerned with 30%-50% CPU utilization. Do you not want to utilize the max potentional of your processor you paid for?
