You should be getting quite a bit more fps than that with your setup. 
I'm using an Athlon 2500 with a 128 Meg GF4 Ti 4600 and here's my 
benchmark scores:

UT2004 Build UT2004_Build_[2004-09-07_17.17]
x86 Linux
AuthenticAMD PentiumPro-class processor @ 1904 MHz
GeForce4 Ti 4800/AGP/SSE/3DNOW!
-benchmark -seconds=77 -ini=default.ini 
24.417984 / 70.467400 / 159.092743 fps         rand[1211459421]
Score = 66.260307

Try benchmarking and see what you come up with. It's hard to judge what 
performance your really getting just by saying that it runs slow on 
certain maps in certain conditions. Then as you keep making changes to 
your system you can benchmark again to see what difference that 
particular change makes. I posted one time to this list complaining 
about Valarna running slow on my system, and Ryan commented that it 
might be a poorly optimized map. So some maps will run slower than 
others. The above bench results are with the 3323 patch, the 3339 patch 
benchmarks at:

7.345902 / 60.180714 / 197.631500 fps         rand[496427488]
Score = 58.062550

Needless to say I'll give up some of the eye candy and switch back to 
the 3323 patch.
