Here's my situation..

Normally, if I just start up my computer and play some JK2, everything's A-OK. Nice gameplay, no lag, packet loss, etc. However, let's say I play some other game beforehand, such as Half-Life or some other mod. If I decide to play JK2 afterwards, I experience horrendous slowdown and loss of framerate. I have the same ping, except now it's slow graphically. I experience the same effect if I play JK2 first, then another game after it.

Is it because I have a seriously un-L337 computer (as shown below), or because of some other thing?

128 MB RAM Pentium III 800 Mhz 10 GB HD space

Um yeah. Anyone know?

With that amount of RAM and Windows has sometimes diffuculties to free memory it used after certain programs. Some Windows versions work better but 128 MB is very little to standards of this days games and programs. And 128 MB runs out very fast with games that use a lot textures even with compressed textures. I would recommend byuing at least another 128 MB making total of 256 MB. I have 768 MB and it runs out sometimes too making things slow.
