Make sure you havent had any onboard gfx enabled, you also wont be able to run any kind of effects and it shoulf be in DX7 forced mode for that card, even at that i doubt you got 160fps fastest ive seen CSS go in a system similar but faster than yours with that card was 42fps. Make sure the settings are turned right down. It is a very old gfx card so i wouldnt expect anything above 50 at the lowest settings, the fastest cards you can buy can hardly get 160fps on CSS.
Look on the driver sites for the latest version of the drivers for that card or if you still have them reinstall them, i dont think that card runs off the normal nvidia drivers as far as i know it was before that, i would use whatever drivers work best if the originals worked use them, you should update drivers regualrly but it actually wont affect cards that are very old fixed are generally for the newest generations and for new games etc..
You might want to think about a new gfx card because that one is pulling the system down you could get alot more performance from it with a 6800ultra or a x850xtpe, and the old AGP cards arent to expensive these days since they went obsolete.

and i also dled driver made by no nvidia just on forceware base but it didnt change anything too
and i got 1more question, what is the difference between normal format and format /q ( i know that q is fast format, but what do i lost using it ? is it worse than normal ? cuz i havent ever than normal format just format q , and maybe that is why my computer is slow ? )
and i got another one game, which was running gr8 in max details, and now in the lowest details, i cant even move .. ( starwars knight of the old republic)
i got one more idea ;] i noticed, that changing graphic options dont affect this problems, i mean that when im playing in the highest details, it is the same as when i m playing in the lowest .. so maybe it isnt about graphic card, but ram , or sth ?
