    I doubt it has anything to do with win 7 RC, i'm infact having a low end graphic card which is a 8600GT and it allow me to play online game with no issue, not only that i too discover with 64bit OS seem to run faster or smoother or is pure concidence

    You have yet to tell us which graphic card you're having?

  • Graphics card's Onboard, but also games that you play very well on XP (although there are 512 MB). When installing Win 7 have increased to 1.5 GB with Vista Games run not lag so

    Onboard graphic only allow you to play those games like yahoo, msn, mable story etc beside onboard graphic share the memory from ram thus would only slow down your rig especially if the size of the ram is already small. Whether you're a gamer or not, there's no harm getting a lower end graphic card, not only it would improve on game as well as the graphic of the screen. Imo is advisable to have at least 2G or above of ram if u're running win 7
