Nice computer lagging on Facebook games?

What my computer can do.
I have a rather nice computer that can run all but 1 of my games on max graphics at 16-- by whatever resolution. Crisis I can run on Mostly Highs, and a couple of ultra highs.

Whats the problem?
When I load Facebook games like Farmville or Cafe World It loads slow (can be internet) then lags when I get to a map with lots of items on it.

Whats the bottle neck? and how do I fix it?

My setup:
OS: XP and VISTA
Motherboard: EVGA nForce 790i ULTA SLI
Graphics Card: BFG Geforce 9800GX2 (X2 in SLI)
Processor: Intel Core 2 Quad 3.0 GHz
RAM: OCZ NVIDIA SLI Ready Edition (2X4G 8G total)
Hard Drive: Western Digital Caviar Black 1T 7200RPM

Thats all I can think of that would matter. (I mean I doubt the CD drive would slow down internet games) Ask if you think I missed something.

Update your flash and web browser for starters.

I just got the new flash yesterday.

I have 3 browsers Firefox, Chrome, and Internet Explorer and all are fully updated.

Try it on another computer in your household and see if that lags??
And why the double post?

It doesn't seem to run on a gfx card, it's largely CPU dependent and probably not the greatest of written software(very inefficient), I think the only other large bottleneck would be how fast your internet connection is.

Yeh, What type of internet connection are you using?

You may be limited by the online servers themselves--these flash games aren't designed for people that expect top-level performance. I tend to think that its either facebook or the games themselves that are slow--not you.
