Try uninstalling the current drivers and download the latest drivers and update the directx as well. Also if you would let us know what games your trying to run which were performing fine before and are you using any specific anti-virus software that might eat up your resources or running unnecessary applications in the background as well as keeping the browsers windows open while the game is running?

Hi,
Hard to believe a 512mb card is able to run anything game wise besides tic-tac-toe or solitary :/

Yes 1gb will get you closer
2gb's would be better since your 32 bit system only allows 3gb of ram max to be seen.
Make note of the power supply minimal requirements for graphic's cards and try not to go too far over what ever you actually have.

Are you sure mate?
I managed to run Battlefield 3: 50fps (capped)/High settings (not all,sampling and that stuff disabled)/MP 64 players server on Caspian border map, on my GeForce 9600GT 512Mb.

And yeah,you'll get some fps boost on Windows 8.
But what do you mean by slow?Lag?Stutters?
