Other than the Ti4600, i'm not overclocking anything, and even the Ti4600 is only mildly overclocked...
I just ran the benchmark again and got: 1639
BTW, I'm using 256MB PC 133 SDRAM @ 150 FSB (pretty obvious for a 1.4 ghz P3-S @ 1575 mhz). Cas timings are as fast as my motherboard allows, plus an extra tweak done in WBXTUNE.
As it turns out, the test I was getting 2-7 fps on was that "ragtroll" test. The 2nd and third gametests gave between 4-15 fps. Still, double the CPU speed, that's still less than 8-30 fps for a 3.5 ghz P4 (assuming the CPU is even a factor here, and not the video card)
