    Very easily!

    Often, very often drivers can have very bad effect on GPU performance. I would install the latest Chipset drivers for your board. And then start testing Older versions of GFX drivers

    All versions are here >>>
    Download NVIDIA drivers | drivers for mobile cards and laptops | laptopvideo2go.com

    And you can get some great tips and info inside the forum as well

    I don't think the drivers are the prob, since friends run at the same drivers with no probs :/

    Your friends do not have the exact system or setup you do. I would try older or newer drivers

    He had a system that was less good :P But could it might be my mobo? since it was a budged board, and I bought it a year ago, that the mobo is blocking the speed?

    You need better ram I think for that, that is what I would buy first. Then a non budget board

    But my Ram-memory is at a game like assassins creed at only 70%, so how can that be the prob? :/ and 2gb should be enough for the games at this time, speccialy for wow, which minimum requirement is only 64 MB-ram... :P

    It is not how much ram usage that is the issue here, but rather quality and speed.

    You want to get 2x1 or 2x2 of good brand 800 or 1066 ram, 4x512 is just not good to game with

    Well the problem is I use all my Ram slots, and the max speed for my mobo @ ram is 800 mhz. So I suppose a new mobo is just the best opi, and then buy new ram..?
