Well, it's hard to say without knowing the specifics between the two video cards.  But the amount of memory a video card has is not a very good gauge of how fast it is.  It could be that the system with an onboard graphics card is using a pretty good chipset that's actually a lot faster than your 32mb card -- that wouldn't surprise me.  And of course the CPU and memory on the two systems can also be a factor.

Does this help?

Or can you tell me exactly what video card you're using, and what motherboard is in the machine with onboard video?
