Low framerates are usually caused by your video card not being able to render graphics fast enough.

Is it an online game? If so, it might be due to a slow connection/server.

Sometimes, it might be caused by old/bad video drivers, or a game that needs patching.

When somebody tells you to get a 6800GT or whatever and to lose the PII, just ignore them

Yeah man that is very slow. Even old games require that you have a proc speed of what 500mhz ? Its about time to just upgrade the whole system.
