Ok so this is the story my computer motherboard was fried so i took it too a friend who works on computers for free... He switched my
Asus A8V-E SE
http://usa.asus.com/products.aspx?l1=3&l2=15&l3=143&l4=0&model=576&modelmenu=1
and my AMD Athlon 64 Processor
http://products.amd.com/en-na/DesktopCPUDetail.aspx?id=119

too the Asus P5N-D
http://usa.asus.com/products.aspx?l1=3&l2=11&l3=627&l4=0&model=2033&modelmenu=1
and the 3.20 gigahertz Intel Pentium D
http://ark.intel.com/Product.aspx?id=28011&code=Intel%C2%AE+Pentium%C2%AE+D+Processor+935+(4M+Cache%2c+3.20+GHz%2c+800+MHz+FSB)

this was the motherboard and processor he happen to have that he could give me... now the problem is that after i got back the computer, after checking to make sure all drivers were installed and updated i would have some graphical lag. Mainly in games where with my old system i would get anywhere from 50-100fps or more easily, i am now getting 10-20fps... also during videos like in you tube i seem to lag a little and more when playing them in HD. and just as another note games like counter srike source where it gives u their reccommended settings they are all set too High for me but i lag with the lowest settings... it does not make sense to me and i cant help to thing that something other than just a old system is the problem seeing as i meet all system requirements of the games i am currently playing.

My Current Specs:
Motherboard: Asus P5N-D
CPU: 3.20 gigahertz Intel Pentium D
Ram: 4gbs of DDR PC2-6400
Video Card: 256mb NVIDIA GeForce 6600
Hard Drive: 232gb SCSI Drive

If anyone has an idea help please...

Yes i have thought of upgrading it to see if that helped at all...
but i used to play all these games with that video card easily and i even tried
ut2004 an old game which everything can run basically and i still got around 20fps...

System Requirements for ut2004:
Pentium III or AMD Athlon 1.0 GHz processor (Pentium® or AMD 1.2GHz or greater recommended)
128MB RAM (256MB RAM or greater recommended)
5.5GB HDD space REQUIRED
8X CD-ROM or DVD
Windows® compatible sound card
32 MB video card required (64 MB NVIDIA or ATI hardware T&L card recommended)

and yet i get 20fps....

Your settings shown previously re hardware stated that nvidea CUDA is disabled - shouldnt that be enabled for performance gaming.
I am not very up-to-speed with nvidea settings as ive been ATI biased for over six years.

I trust you installed your mobo drivers first before any other drivers when the pc was first built.

If you did install the drivers correctly then the next thing to do is go to the support web site for your card and download the latest driver pack for XP SP3 and save on desktop. Then uninstall your display adapter drivers, shut down the computer - then restart the pc but cancel any auto driver installation and instead run the driver pack you previously downloaded.

Hopefully when the system restarts your problem is resolved.

Unfortunately it did not help... but i wonder if the best thing to do in this situation is to just get a better graphics card? and if the problem still persists i know its something else is wrong?

It is always better to borrow a card for a day to rule out the mobo or the psu - however if you were going to upgrade your card anyway, then fair enough.

In addition to the above I noticed that your cpu is running at 52 degC and your mobo is a bit high aswell - can you please confirm a few things please

1. Was your PC Wizard hardware test done whilst the computer had been idle for an hour or so - or was it just after running games etc?

2. What sort of case do you have and how many fans (+type of fan)?

3. Is your CPU cooler a bundled cooler which came with the CPU?

It was after playing some games i believe... but it has been running hot. Right now it is running a few degrees higher than before.
I have 3 fans but i dont really know what types there are so i couldn't tell you...
i installed 4 better fans after it was running hot before but 1 fan broke since then and i have only had 3 running.

But what type of case (model ref) do you have?

Also do you live in a very hot location i.e what is your room temperature?

Is your CPU cooler a bundled cooler which came with the CPU?
