Aces High gets lower frame rates in 640 res with all video cards I believe. Try the higher resolutions at work, should get a higher rate.

All I can say is OUCH!  I'd make sure you have Dx 7.0a and Direct X certified drivers.  It looks to me like your card may not be accelerating Direct X.  Check for newer drivers.  Also, 800 x 600 is faster than 640 x 480 on any video card I've tried.

I found the problem.  The Quadro chip, while powerful, is not a Direct 3d accelerator.  It is optimized for 3d graphics workstations and Open GL ICD.  In other words, it's not designed for gaming, it's designed for rendering applicatioins.
