If you are running windows at a high res and then trying to run the game at the same res, you may find your graphics card cant cope, so try to lower the res of the game. I know this is opposite to what the above said, but its worth a shot since your card is low on Ram and high resolutions eat up ram.
A new card would be a good idea if you intend to play many games. You dont need to go overboard though, unless your a ardent gamer in search of the fasted most advanced card to get the fasted best looking games ever.
