I just purchased a brand new $1100 desktop gaming computer. My new games, JC2, Mass Effect 2, CIV.. All run fine.

The problem is when I load old games, like Diablo II, Warcraft II, and a few others. The games seem choppy and run horribly, yet my system is definitely powerful enough to run these at max settings.

Any ideas?

This is likely because older games are designed to run on the GLIDE API used by older video cards. Newer cards don't implement or support this API.

I suggest installing a glide emulator such as http://www.zeus-software.com/downloads/nglide. That should fix performance!
