I have a Windows Vista home premium computer with an NIVIDA 8500GT graphics card with 256MB, an Intel Core 2 Quad Processor Q6600 each core operates at 2.4 GHz, 2 x 4 MB L2 cache, 1066 MHz FSB. I have a 500 GB SATA II hard drive. Dual channel 2048 MB DDR2 memory, Memory Card Reader 15-in-1. I have a 32-bit operating system and 2030 MB of rams. My problem is, however, that I have constant game lag while playing all next gen gaming titles (offline). Games such as Bioshock, Jericho, Call of Duty 4, ect. I am not able to play these games on the highest graphic settings without lag, (sometimes not even fair graphic settings). I don't understand why.  Huh?

Vista is a known resource hog, so I'd turn down all the fancy graphics in the OS first.

Then make sure that you only have absolutely essential system services and software running, while gaming.

To me it looks like you may have to increase your RAM to run those games properly, but report back once you've toned down the resources that Vista requires. I'd like to know if that makes any difference on your gaming experience.

 The system requirements for the games mentioned you have plenty of,,I wouldnt bother upgrading anything or adding anything other then going back to winxp pro sp2,,,personally I wouldnt have a thing to do with vista,,seen it tried it and read about it,,they got many many problems.
 My system is not as good as yours except for same memory but COD 4 runs good on my 2GHz pc with xp pro

The 8500 is a awful card, and thats why you lagg... Not sure why you chose to put it next to some pretty good components. If you want a cheap good gaming graphics card get the ati 3850
