Demo1 results; Conf., and Inconsistent FPS

Hello Doomers........,

I wanted to know if my cached demo1 results were decent according to my (aging) hardware:

XP PRO
P4 3GHZ
CRUCIAL 2GB RAM
137 GB HDD
Sapphire HD 3650 512MB DDR2

Doom chooses Ultra settings; I get an average of 31FPS on the demo, however, it slows down to **** at some points (18 FPS). I've read Doom 3 is not fond of ATI but is there a recommended .cfg file I can use? Also, I'm not sure if its a myth or not but, can you REALLY cap the FPS to a lower standard ironing out frame rate inconsistency?

What screen resolution is it running at? Ultra Quality should be fitting to your video card's strengths at this point, but depending on how high a screen res you have, it might be a little too much for your setup.

Also, your CPU barely makes the Recommended requirements for Doom 3, to the best of my recollection.
