Now, I tried out some older games like Halo as well, and they were fine, which is why I'm guessing it's a problem they're having with Direct X 9, because (as far as I know) Splinter Cell and XIII are both DX9 games.
Halo was one of the first PC games to support DX 9.
if yer comp plays that game...."fine", then i don't see why it shouldn't play other Dx9 titles.
if this double speed thing is bugging you..you could try a few things.
go into bios, and set yer aperture to 64mb instead of 128mb.
change yer AGP 8X to 4X.
in Advanced Display Props...try disabling any AA + AF...
see if that "slows" things done..
and also, adjust yer mouse sensitivity settings.
i have a M 9600pro 128mb in my lappy..and it can play those games pretty well.
