Lag spikes, graphic problem or network related?

Hey guys, well I got a problem with my graphic card I guess, I am using a 512mb ati radeon 5670 graphic card and my games are ... let's say having lag spikes, not all games but games which I play online.

System spec

AMD Phenom II X2 3.1 GHz 550
Ati Radeon 5670 512MB
PSU: Gigabyte Superb 550P, 550W
OS: Windows 7 Ultimate 32bit

I have read at some forums that it is an conflict with the realtek audio drivers, I disabled them but the lag spikes occur even then.
They come only on online games like when I am moving with something it begins to stop and go, like a very tiny lag.

  1. Can be connection problems especially if only online.
    How much memory is installed?
  2. 2GB of it planning to get 4GB soon, as of the internet provider I am quite a long with them and I had no problems.
  3. It can be that windows is reaching into the swap/page file and therefore lagging. If you have other applications running in the background try switching them off and see if game play improves.
  4. I tried that as well it didn't help at all, any other ideas maybe? :D
