Possible Video Card Issue

I have been experiencing problems with graphics for some time with my pc. I believe they are video card related. (PC specs are below) Some issues are when I have two files open at the same time everything slows down to the point where I can't operate SW. Which is a real pain making drawing files seeing how you need the part file open to make the drawing. Also when I try to print anything in SW in a non-wire frame mode the print will come out very pixilated. The driver I have is the only one shown on the SW web site as being recommended. It is very frustrating to kill SW and restart every time I need to make a print. This has been happening with earlier versions of SW too not just the last one I updated too. I was wondering if anyone else is having the same troubles?
