Your system is bering held back by the very limited RAM and the slow quad core. Even though the video card is faster, it unbalances your system even more and chokes on all the data being pumped around. If you have one or more hard disks (you did not mention that fact) the system may be even more unbalanced. If you want more info, we need more info first.
Ah so it's too good for my setup then, I never considered that.
I have two hard disks yes, I have one with 32-bit windows installed for general use, and 64-bit on the second for video editing. According to the windows system performance check thing the disk transfer rate could be faster.
Is there any other information you would like to know?
Cash isn't easy to come by at the moment so what would you recommend upgrading first from below, or any other ideas?
- double my ram,
- ditch my hardrives for a new fast single drive with only 64-bit installed,
- or wait a bit and save for a new faster processor? And also what's the minimum (i.e. cheaper) ghz that would help to balance as you said, my machine?
Thanks for the help.
Also, in the meantime, is there anyway that I can rein in its power somehow so that performance levels are back as they were with my old card?

You need a dedicated Video drive, separate from your OS drive.
And your memory is where you can make the best, cheapest impact right now.
