And if so what's with the lag?
The way to tell if the Graphics Card is the bottleneck for performance is to LOWER YOUR SCREEN RESOLUTION, which drastically drops the graphics workload, and see if this improves the condition. If this does improve the lag, you now know what aspect of your new computer needs more attention..
