Forget ioQuake, the OS X universal port of Q3 is great. My eMac with a itty bitty 32MB Radeon 7500 runs it on 1280x960 without skipping a beat.
Is your computer doing anything in the background?
How much memory (RAM) does your computer have?
You are running the game from your internal hard disk, right?
You could try tweaking the .cfg files to use a higher cache of RAM for the game, but that's beyond the scope of this 2AM tipsy post
