Question DVD-Writer issue

Hi folks.
Iīve obtained a new DVD-Writer for my PC (Model: LG GH22NP20), hoping to gain faster writingspeeds up to 22x for DVD-/+ R media. My former writer was limited to 4x.
Yet I tried 12x, but it takes nearly the same time than 4x, appr. 14 minutes. The RAM-buffer decreases very fast when writing on 12x so the drive slows down the writing speed untill the buffer is filled again, and so on..
Even on 8x the speed is averaged at 5,6x.
Perhaps itīs my PC, which isnīt the newest model (MB: Abit IC-7, Pentium 4 with Hyperthreading @2,8 Ghz, 1GB RAM, 160GB S-ATA HD)!?
The LG-writer is mastered and hooked up on IDE-2 solely.
Any suggestions!?

Thanks in advance.
Regards, schmocke
