I successfully installed Dragon Age: Origins with PlayOnLinux on my Ubuntu 12.04 but the game is too slow, frame per second(fps) is too low. I played this game so many times in Windows with the high graphic settings, so my hardware is enough.

What is the problem, why it's slow, and what can I do to improve performance?
