    Actualy, I think the reason your computer is running the game slow is the Videocard, that card is pretty old...

    Try this:

    Go to www.systemrequirementslab.com and run a Test for Hitman: Blood Money

    If you pass then just google Hitman: Blood Money patch or something like that and download it

    If you fail then upgrade your videocard to something more recent.
    What Bus slot do you have? ( PCI/PCI-e/AGP x4/AGP x8 )

    Just because you pass Minimum doesnt mean it could work, My friend passed Oblivion with minimum ( befor they had the Very Low option patch ) and when he played on Low his computer would go up like 20o C and his computer would crash

    Since you have PCI only then you could get a ATI 9800 or 6200, Both have Shader 3.0 so it'll run the game pretty good on around medium ( It might not say you'll pass on some games but that's because they mark stuff as atleast 6800 / x800+ on System Requirements lab )

    I dont really have any other options you could do to make the game run on your system at the moment

    If you do plan on buying a videocard make sure to get it from www.newegg.com, it'll save you $100s instead of going to Bestbuy or something ;)
