Poor frame rates? Any ideas?

I am running Hitman 2 - Silent Assassin on my pc.
I have a 1700+xp processor, 448MB of SD-RAM, and a GeForce2 MX 64MB SD-RAM. The frame rate, even on 800*600 and 640*480 is low. I have ensured all programs in the background are off (AVG, ZoneAlarm etc as well as my screensaver)
I have also turned all the settings to their lowest in the game, but the frame rate is lower than it should be (jerky, and freezes). I have read about people with a PIII 700Mhz and 32MB graphics running the game smoothly. What's wrong?! The recommended spec is a 550Mhz processor with a 16MB graphics card.

Do you have the latest drivers for your graphics card? Have a look at click here

Using the 45.23 drivers from Nvidia (August this year) The first version of Hitman ran smoothly, but even on low resolution this one sometimes freezes for 10 seconds at a time! Driving me up the wall coz I can't play it properly! :-(

Out of my depth I'm afraid... Don't know anything about gaming.
