  1. Best answer
    9400GT is a weak card and was not even good for gaming when it was new like 6 years ago.

    Having Windows on a 5400RPM drive is always a bad idea.
  2. but earlier i had a core 2 Duo and the same card
    fifa did lag on it
    but photoshop worked fine
  3. Did you reinstall Windows when you upgraded?
