    Default NVIDIA GeForce FX 5200 128 performance

    I bought a new dell dimension 4600. Here's the specs:
    3.0Ghz, 800Mhz FSB with HT technology
    1Gb 400 Mhz memory
    SB Live!
    Windows XP Pro
    Dell 1703FP 17" Flat panel display (using DVI hookup)
    AGP 8x

    Before testing any games I ran as bare bones as possible (even removing services not needed).

    Here's my problem: I'm getting lousy frame rates. Nascar 2003 I get avg 27fps. Another racing game (in development) I get 9fps. In warcraft III if I run it in 1280x1024x32, you can't even move the mouse around it lags so bad, but 16 bit mode is not so bad.

    On my old computer (see specs below) with an old GF3, I get the same fps in nr2003, but in the other games it gets more than 4 times the fps. I'm using the exact same game settings.

    Is the FX 5200 that much slower than a GF3??? Or is something else going on here? I went over it with dell support and reset the computer to factory defaults, but that was all they could do.

    If this doesn't just sound like a vid card issue, I'd like to return the entire computer before the 21 days is up.

    Any thoughts?
    Thanks in advance.

    My old computer specs seem to be missing from my sig so:
    AMD 1.2Ghz, Abit KT7a-RAID mb, 450w power
    233mhz fsb
    Windows XP Pro
    1Gb PC 150 Kingmax mem
    Nvidia GeForce 3 Ti500
    SB Audigy sound
    Viewsonic GS790 monitor
