how much fps do u usually get at ultra setting, and at wat resoluation

I'm pretty sure any PCIE interface is still fast as hell. 1.1 or 2.0/.1 obviously 2.0 is twice the speeds but you should be fine.

You may want to consider a motherboard upgrade though.
i think i will do that, any idea which one is good

I dont know about over the pond but as long as you dont plan on upgrading to DDR3 I would suggest this board. It has all the features one could want with the addition of a 2nd pci-e 2.0 slot for future upgradeability

PCIE 1.1 16 lanes is the same as PCIE 2.0 8 lanes, and 8 lanes is not a bottleneck!
Are you on 32 bit windows? i'm pretty sure windows shares the 32 bitness with the GPU memory so 3.25-1.00 is 2.25GB, and games use about 1.5GB nowadays.

Most likely that DDR2 is the issue
