Thanks for your responses, guys.  A few quick questions on your RAM

a) were you using dual channel mode
b) how much RAM did you have, in what config (1 stick, 2, etc.)
c) and how much did you have dedicated to the nvidia onboard?

I only have a single (2700, I think) Crucial 512MB dimm, so obviously no
dual channel.  I'm thinking about trying to bump the total RAM up to
1024 w/ two 512 sticks in dual channel and wondering if I might get much
of a benefit in this situation (and in general) from that.

I'll also try increasing the available RAM for the Nvidia and see if 
that helps.

Thanks again,
