I have a Old Rusty PC with Intel Core 2 Duo E7500 on Stock Clock n' Cooling and 4GB Ram , I decided to upgrade from Nvidia GT240 to XFX HD 7770 Core Edition .

Well , When I was playing NFS Rivals , I observed many Lags then I tried to play it on Lowest Possible , Again there were lags .

These lags are because of my CPU , GPU or because of Ram ?

Will upgrading my CPU will help ?

Yes, the core 2 duo is most likely bottlenecking your GPU.

What motherboard do you have.

The best CPU you can upgrade to is a Core 2 Quad Q9650 which should give you better performance in gaming.

Try overclocking your cpu to 3 GHZ.
