What settings are you using? He is using very, very low ones.

It's your GPU that is causing the lag. try the lowest graphics game ettings.

Also, is your RAM setup for dual-channel? It looks like they're in the DIMMs that are right next to each other. Usually, ever other DIMM has the same color, and RAM modules should be placed in same-color slots to be utilized in dual channel.

My recommendations:

sub $100 = 4670
$100 = 4830
$150 = 4870
$150 = GTX 260 216 core
$200 = 4890
$250 = Sapphire 4890 Toxic edition
$300 = 2 GTX 260 216 or Sapphire 4890 Atomic edition
$350 = 4870 X2 (shop around)
$400 = 2 4890s

You get the idea.

Wow - you have a terrible graphics card. If you can't afford to replace it, set all games to the lowest possible settings, but if possible, the best thing to do would be to replace your card. Something like a 4670 or 9600GT would massively improve your framerates.
