What do you mean by laggy? Like as in choppy? and is this the only game that does this? Is it an online game? If so what is your ping? YOu can also check your FPS; see what they are and let me know. PLUS has it always been "laggy"? If not when did it start happening?

Did you remove the drivers before you changed the card? Also before shutting down did you remove the 9500 from device manager?

That is the order which you should do it. I had a 9800XT and an X800XT both showing in device manager for a few minutes because I did backasswards. That is why I asked.;)

And make sure the power connector to the side of the card is connected, I've been informed that some cards will run without it but not perform up to spec.
