Windows 7: [7057]x32 Lag every 3 sec in Games

Like I said, you're confusing SLI with Hybrid SLI. SLI is two cards of the same chip and specs, Hybrid SLI is using the onboard with a compatible card (and does not use the SLI connector on the card, it is all handled by a setting in the bios).

If your card works you will probably see little to no performance increase. If used with a faster card (9800GT and up), there will be zero performance increase, and the benefit would come from running your monitor on the onboard to use less power.

but how does this confusing conversation help my lag?
As I said previously, start with uninstalling all Nvidia video drivers and run DriverSweeper (in safe mode) to get rid of the remnants, then try again.

Also what game(s)?

oooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooh so that's the difference between the 2. no matter what explanation i heard, it didn't make sense. but now i finally get it. funny you should mention 9800GT. the nvidia tech i talked to say it would work with Hybrid SLI with my motherboard and i've been considering buying one. and even if it doesn't work with hybrid SLI, it still has more power than what i already have. and i've tried uninstalling and reinstalling the drivers and it didn't work. as far as what games, it's nearly every game i have. Unreal Tournament 3, Halo 2 Vista, Bioshock, The Orange Box...i think the only one i've played that worked was Halo 1 (and there was still a little lag on it). just to throw this into the mix, all these games worked on my old hardware, with the exception of UT3 and Bioshock. UT3 because i didn't have enough memory to run it on 7 and Bioshock because i just got that and never tried it on my old stuff. here's what i used to have:

-AMD Athlon 64 2.4GHz
-1.5 DDR RAM
-EVGA GeForce 8600GT
-some microstar motherboard that i can't remember now

i find it odd that i'm getting this lag with the more powerful hardware and the only thing i can think of is lack of proper drivers for the new hardware (with the exception of graphics drivers because i've done nVidia updates numerous times and i have the latest drivers).
