need more information......as your GPU card is very light (6.4GB/s) bandwidth and only a 64 bit card, I think the problem might be that. However you must post all your specs so we can make an informed opinion. How much RAM? How big is the CPU? How many Watts is the Power Suppy? Motherboard full Name?
go here to check out your GPU against other GPU's
