It could be that a driver update will solve your problems. Try going to www.nvidia.com and download the latest drivers for your graphics card.

However, I do agree with an upgrade. For 70$, I would recommend the Radeon HD5570. nVidia doesn't really have any budget current-gen parts yet, so I wouldn't recommend nVidia cards. The closest nVidia card I could find that will fit your budget is a GT220, and between that and a Radeon HD5570, the HD5570 wins.

I have the same motherboard but with a Q6600 G0.
The only 'problem' I have with it is that the chipset heats too much.

I'd upgrade the graphics card. I used to have a 8600 GT and it could not run Asssassins Creed at minimum on 1680x1050, I had to use a very low resolution.

I think for $9 more, you could get a HD 5670 for $79, and it's a way better card for the budget. I'm getting one soon. :bounce: 

Just see if your power supply is enough for the card (although it drains little power).
