I've recently purchased the Dell XPS M1710 laptop...with Vista 32-bit, Core2Duo @2.00ghz, 2GB Ram, Nvidia Geforce Go 7950 gtx..

Some of the games I run (Fifa 07) lag when I max out the resolution and graphic settings....these are noticeable slow downs as well, like 10-15 second periods of slow motion....another example is transformers, which is completely unplayable at the fps it runs at....there is no way that these games shouldn't run smooth at max settings, is there?

this is my first high end machine, so any tips in optimizing performance would be appreciated, thanks

go to nvidia and download the latest drivers. Because your running vista and a laptop, expect a 10-12% reduction in performance.

make sure it is being ventilated when you play games. heat can cause the computer to run slow with any applications.
