My Compaq Presario 5000 US is kinda poopy when playing games. It has a 1.6 GHz Pentium 4. I upgraded the video card to a GeForce FX 5900 XT (originally it was an FX 5200). I'm not sure if its either a CPU or GPU bottleneck OR the computer is just slow. I might swap out the hard drive and reinstall Windows.

3dMark2001 benchmarks are OK...I think. Not sure.
Here's a video of the benchmark:
Could it just be a bottleneck or is it just a slow computer?
