I'm running a PC with a Jetway 663AS Ultra motherboard, Athlon 1ghz processor, 40gb hard drive, 256mb RAM and Mercury Geforce 2 MX400 graphics card but the games I used to play on my old P2 350 with 16mb Voodoo Banshee actually run either slower or about the same frame rate on this PC.(Half Life, Falcon 4, Rogue Spear etc.). Does anyone know why this is? the games are running in D3D mode

Check your bios isn`t set to wakeup on LAN (I think it is - away from my comp at moment) I had the same problem with the same motherboard, caused by incoming calls "waking" up the computer which was set as default.
