Default I really am so frustrated (laptop help)

Ok here is my deal, our old computer with a geforce 3 graphics card and 512mb ram and like 1.6 processor runs games better than my laptop with a Geforce go 6150 its a six series from a 3, my laptop also has faster processor- 3.2 and more ram 1g

why do games like Guild wars that Ran PERFECT on an old computer with a 3series card run better than a 6 series card and please dont say your card sucks
I know it sucks compared to everyones elite cards lol but please help me I know things should run better I even turned of Aero

Please help me I know this computer is well enough to run games I meet all the reccomended specs of some games and they still run bad,,,,why??

oh and Vista home premium

Vista does have a bunch of bugs and unwanted programs which can lag down your computer.
