My PC lagging

Hello ,I have a problem . I will start with the begining :

--->My specs :

- CPU : AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+ 2.4Ghz
- GPU : NVIDIA GeForce 9400GT 512Mb
- RAM : 4Gb DDR2
- MB : BIOSTAR Group NF520-A2 TE
- HDD : Samsung 250 GB
- PSU : nJoy 400W

--->My story :

I used to play the games of my pc age ( I bought it in 2007-2008 ) on max settings with no problem .Last 2 years I played less PC games cause I bought an Xbox360 , and in that "less" games the performance was crap but get it over cause I thought it's my PC old. Now that I discovered this problem in time , tested it on my first game on this PC , Assassin's Creed . I could run it with max settings with no lag , now is lagging like hell at medium settings . All games do same ( without Mario yay :D ) , I can run them but in very low FPS .

--->Things that I tried already:

- Reinstalling Windows
- Clean Dust
- Clear CMOS
- Update Bios
- Update all latest drivers
- Scan Malware/Virus
- Defragmenting Disk
- Remove Ram's tested it with 1 instead of 4 ( tablets)
- Changed PSU
- And so far ....

If you have any advice I'm very happy to get it . TY !

More about lagging
  1. Try older GPU drivers, new drivers can sometimes cause problems.
  2. And one more thing go back to your xbox if you cant upgrade your pc cause games these days are very heavy and your specs cant handle them.

    I'm planning to get a new PC in January :) ... just need something to solve this play Aion in some good fps and not crap graphics till then ....
  4. Did you by any chance upgrade your monitor since then? If you played at 1024x768 in 2007, you will have three times more frames per second than on 1920x1080 monitor.

    Your performance does seem normal, though. No way you could have maxed out Assassin Creed on 9400 GT at 1920x1080.

    That said, 9400 GT is an extremely weak card. Don't expect to play at high settings with it.
