Wacraft 3 poor performance

Normally I'm not one to ask for help, as I pretty much can solve any computer issue I have, however I'm tired and annoyed at this point. I had WC3 installed and running perfectly and recently had to wipe/reinstall my OS. I installed all of the necesary drivers, software, games, etc... configured everything to my liking, and now WC3 will lag if I move the mouse. It will not run smoothly at all.

I know that I had to tweak my graphics card in order to run, and possibly use older drivers, though now I'm using the latest since I don't remember what I had downloaded... but any setting I try fails to make any improvement.

I'll post more specific system specifications to anyone who replies that thinks they have a similar problem, or has solved a problem like this. My graphics card is an Nvidia Geforce FX 5200 (128 MB). Yes it's an old dog of a card that didn't even perform well for it's time, but it's served me well. I have a P4 2.8 Ghz processor and 1 GB of RAM...

If anyone has the same graphics card and can post the settings their advanced settings that'd be cool.
