Hi guy's this is my first post so be kind, the problem is that when playing games (offline) im always lagging unless they are fairly old games my spec is -

CPU: AMD athalon ii quad core 645 overclocked to 3.6mhz
Mobo: Unknown
Chipset: AMD 760G, AMD K10
RAM: DIMM1: Team Group Team--Elite-1333 4 GB DDR3-1333 DDR3 SDRAM (8-8-8-22 @ 609 MHz) (7-7-7-20 @ 533 MHz) (6-6-6-17 @ 457 MHz)
Display/Graphics card: ATI Radeon HD 3100 (RS780L)
Harddrive: Hitachi HDS721010CLA332 ATA Device (1000 GB, 7200 RPM, SATA-II)

i think it must be the graphics that needs replacing.

any advice on what i can do to fix this problem or and good Graphics cards that are fairly cheap would be great.

thanks tom.

i think you might change you graphic card for some thing better..
at least hd 5770 or gts 450 .. that's the minimum for 2009~2011 games, @ 22'' monitor or less
i highly recommend gtx 460 for $150.. 120 after rebet @ newegg :)  for 1080p screen

The ATI Radeon HD 3100 is a weak graphics card. That's your problem.

yes a 4550 is slow. for $80 you should be able to get a 5670/6670, not great, but a LOT better than what you have.
