So, I recently bought Civilization IV from steam for $12 because I fell in love with the demo. So I'm playing and I lag pretty bad when I go from one end of the world to the other (It also helps to know that I'm in the biggest world). I currently have a GTX 460 768mb video car in the rig, but I also own a Radeon HD 5770. So which one would be better for playing Civ IV?

My specs are:
CPU: AMD Athlon II x3 435
OS: Win7
Ram: 4GB

Now before you start saying upgrade your CPU first, I am going to upgrade it in the near future so don't give me that suggestion. What I want to know is which card would lagg less. Would the extra vram in my HD 5770 give the AMD card an advantage? Or should I just keep the GTX 460 in it? Oh and I have OC the GTX card with slightly better performance but barely noticeable. Or is the RAM my problem? Should I get more RAM? Any help would be appreciated.

CPU: Intel Core i7 2600k Motherboard: ASRock Z68 PRO3 GEN3 Ram: CORSAIR XMS3 16GB HDD: ADATA (Micro Center branded) 64GB SSD, WD Caviar Black WD7501AALS 750GB GPU: XFX HD-577A-ZNFC Radeon HD 5770 PSU: COOLER MASTER Silent Pro M600 RS-600-AMBA-D3 Case: COOLER MASTER RC-690

It depends on the resolution you play at which the vram comes into play. Also you might try to turn down some game settings to smooth out the gameplay.

1920x1080, and most settings are on low with no AA enabled...

I just had a look at the system requirements for the game and your computer should be able to play it easily.
