Well there you go then..you're trying to access a file that is larger
than RAM, so naturally you won't be able to fit it all in RAM, and
with 1GB less RAM in your system you'll spend much more time reading
bits of it from disk and later throwing them away.



Not to mention the old system has SCSI and the new one has SATA.
The poster didn't mention, but if the SCSI are 10K rpm or 15K rpm and the SATA are 7,200 rpm.. the SATA disks don't stand a chance.. specially with less memory.
