lag when playing some games

Specs: Windows Vista
hey my computer lags sometimes when it plays dawn of war 2, I thought it might have been the game but everyone seem to be loading faster than me. this is my system description, processor:Intel(R) Core(TM)2 Duo CPU P8400 @2.26GHz 2.26GHz, RAM: 2GB, 64-bit operating system. I think it might be my processor or vista, but with vista I downgraded the graphics and it still lags. I mean this thing is an alienware you would think it would handle almost anything. if someone could give me some answers that would be great.

What happen when u play other games? If other games lags too, u could try to reinstal the vga driver.

edit... I check system requirements for dawn of war 2 both minimum and recomended and it need vista sp1

It rarely lags with other games but they are not as complex as dow2, what would reinstalling the vga driver do exactly?
Also I was thinking about upgrading to windows 7, would that help or would it not make a difference?

"I mean this thing is an alienware you would think it would handle almost anything"

But it's a lower end Alienware.

"I think it might be my processor or vista"

I highly doubt it. Maybe you just have a lot of garbage loaded on your machine?

"It rarely lags with other games but they are not as complex as dow2"

DoW 2 is NOT a complex game...just look at the system requirements:

Maybe it's your internet connection?
