it runs perfectly on osX but when i bootcamp it to windows it starts lagging even more during games that dont run on osX, the ram doesnt exceed 400mb, but the cpu usage just spikes up every once in a while. Nothing else goes up as high as system idle process for the cpu either.

its not just games using internet explorer lags. simply playing a music file on windows media player lags and the music repeats itself for 3 seconds lol xD its quite annoying. But the games i play are counterstrike, gunbound, etc. ive tried many games its the same.

if anyone else has the same problem, the solution is to disable the wireless network search because it kept failing to find network it lagged windows. thanks to apple discussions =]

I've noticed this when I play NWN2 in BootCamp ... my MBP has plenty of video and RAM to run it. Thanks for the solution!
