In my opinion it's the CPU. Check the CPU load when you're playing.
Also check if Intel Hypertreadhing technology is enabled in your BIOS (if your Pentium 4 supports it).

You could try to reinstall Windows....

Keep in mind that gaming on a Pentium 4 with a Radeon X1550 isn't really good.

I suggest you to upgrade your CPU to a Core 2 Duo one: the slowest Core 2 Duo CPU (the E6300, which I own in my 2nd pc) is more than double faster than the fastest Pentium 4 CPU. You can find one used of them on ebay for about 30 bucks.
The Core 2 Duo E6300 can handle modern games and overclocks really well.
And yes, your motherboard supports Core 2 Duos

Graphics patch?

Simply uninstall Ati Drivers and install a previous one version.
Or use system restore points to undo your driver update.
