Major performance problems

I recently upgraded one of my systems to a Sempron 2400+, 2 GBs of DDR, and a NVidia GeForce FX5500 128MB graphics card. I installed the latest NVidia drivers. I then decided to try some games, Battlefield 1942 and Battlefield Vietnam specifically. I was shocked at the dismal performance. The games were glitchy and slow when compared to my other system, a 1.2 GHz Celeron, 512 MB SD, and a GeForce 4 MX440 64MB graphics card.

Does anybody have any suggestions on what might be the cause of the poor performance, or how to increase system performance?

Were the games running at the same resolution? Did you have another video card previously installed in this system?

Yes, same resolution and depth, same video settings. I did have a previous video card, a Radeon 7000.

http://www.drivercleaner.net remove the ATI and nVidia drivers completely. Reboot and install the latest driver from nVidia.com
