I have an AMD at 1700MHz and iut is very jerky with Age of Empires II, but fine with Mech-Warrior II, any clues ?

Not really, I used to run AoE2 on a 233MMX with 64MB Ram and it was superb. The current Video card is an Nvidia M64 with 32MB, using DDR2 Ram, 512MB. That should be fine. Both games run at the same resolution, have tried different accelerator settings, different colour densities, you name it. I suspect that there is something not right because the whole machine hangs and the mouse pointer stops,the animations are equally affected,whereas in MechWarrior2 all is great, using maximum settings and it is as smooth as.

Yes Dude, It is a clean install. It is not an old system, it was assembled for the task, the Motherboard was made in 2001.
