It isnt RAM, thats for sure. Just try loweriong the settings and closing out all other programs and download the ATI tool(search google for it) and then OC a little.

This may or may not be the cause, but run a spyware sweeper and then defragment your hard-drive. It could be the case. I defragmented my hard-drive and realized that why my machine was suffering slow downs was not because of hard-ware problems but because the hard-drive was so badly fragmented.

What kinda temps are you getting? Could it be too hot?

I doubt your RAM would be the problem, but you could try running it without a paging file. That almost always speeds things up if the game will work in your hardware ram...

Drivers, as mentioned, could cause problems too. I've noticed pretty big difference after I updated mine...

It is one of the various causes, and since nobody named it I thought it was good for me to mention it. You only have to do it every now and then.
