My M11x can't run jack (like Fallout 3 on full settings with no lag like other people do) and I know to switch to the GT335m, I'm not a technological invalid.
Here are my specs:
4GB RAM at 800MHz I think
320 GB HDD at 7,200 RPM
GT335m with 1 GB of VRAM and 2.9 total memory with the shared memory from page file
SU7300 Core 2 Duo CULV at 1.73 GHz
Any Ideas?

I would start by looking at what background processes are running and scanning your whole system for malware, viruses and the like. Once you have cleaned all that stuff off and cleared out run check disk and defrag and do all that good maintenace stuff. Reportback if you find anything and we can start to look at what can be tweaked once we know for sure it's not other issues.

modded driver? and you paid for it? The drivers should be free from the nvidia website so there is no reason to get modded ones. I would double check that you are running the newest driver from the nvidia website and see what happens. There is almost no reason that you should be charged for anything with your computer beyond the cost of buying it, unless a part fails.

N I didn't buy them, it from Nautis at the notebook forums so you can still switch to integrated graphics

You can do that by disabling the the GT335m in bios, there is no need for a modded driver. I would just go get the newest one for teh 335 and see what you get. In fact now that i think about ti I tihnk you can turn the 335 off as part of the power settings too.

I believe you can turn off the 335 in your power settings, causing the laptop to revert to using the onboard grpahics so there is no real need for a modded driver... go to the nvidia website and get the newest driver for the 335 and try it for gaming and see if you are getting the graphics you expected.
