[Wine] Games performance with wine

I've been using Linux Ubuntu for a few days, but I already love it :) However, when I'm running windows games under wine, I get less than 10fps, while under windows they work really fast. I have installed latest Nvidia drivers from ubuntu repositories and Direct X 9c under wine (yes, dxdiag works, and it passes all the tests). I have also seen on youtube, that many people don't have any problems with running those games under ubuntu. Is there any solution for this problem?

Some info that might be needed:

CPU - Core2Duo e4300 @ 2.34GhZ
Graphic Card - Palit Geforce 7300GS
Ram - 2GB @ 800MhZ

Wine version: 1.1.10
Ubuntu version: 8.10 with all the updates

Games I tried to run:
Steam - works, but when I switch to games list, even it's windows moves very slowly
Half-LIfe 2 (steam) - only 5-7 fps
GTA San Andreas - when many NPC's appear on screen it's getting laggy. When I turn my back to NPC's it's fine again.
