Maybe is a driver problem.
Uninstall amigamerlin through Driver Uninstaller, update directx and reinstall drivers.

you are probably hitting the cpu limit-voodoo2 can indeed be faster than voodoo3 on (very) old pcs.a pentium3 500 or better would improve your performance greatly-try getting one from ebay,they are dirt cheap.according to google,you should have a socket370 mainboard:

better check your mainboard for supported cpus before buying.
