Slow frame rates

  jules1315 12:59 22 Apr 2003

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

The Voodoo wouldn't be able to process the newer features available to later graphics cards so it ignores them. The newer graphics card has to process the instructions, produces a far more complex picture and, therefore, takes longer?
