By lag I take it you mean when you play online? if so, the culprit could easily be your internet or your ping is high because you are trying to play on a far away server... ie: You are in the US but you are playing on a server in Russia.

You could download an app called CPU-Z, when you run it, it will tell you all you need to know about your computer.

I doubt drivers are the culprit but, if you have never updated them, this would be a great time to do so... video and audio as well. Once you run CPUZ we can help you further.

Are you running the latest drivers for your graphics card? It could easily be bad GPU performance.
