Hello,
Lag can be caused by a number of things. You've already tried lowering your video quality settings, playing in windowed mode can also help.
Game lag can be caused by processor intensive mods, do you have any?
Your card isn't exactly new, but that doesn't have to be a problem.

The most common cause for game lag is bad routing, large saves and sims that get stuck/invisible and abandoned cars. So which world are you playing, and how long have you had that save game? Does lag happen less frequently on a new game? Try opening the console and use resetsim to see if that makes a difference at all.

Hey what do you mean by resetsim the cosole I don't know?

I don't have any saved game in the sims 3 at the time beacuse I'am trying to update the game.

Also what is a processor intensive?

The lagg does occur in a new game and saved game.

//EDIT

I think I found my processor its intel prentium 631.

Hello,
Processor intensive means "using a lot of processor power". This applies to some mods particularly, which is why I asked if you have any mods.
Resetsim is a cheatcode that resets all sims in town to their home lot effectively solving any issues with stuck/invisible sims. To use this code, open the console with SHIFT+CTRL+C. A box appears at the top of your screen, type resetSim in it and to activate. You can also reset individual sims by using resetSim .
Have you tried different towns to see if the lag occurs everywhere? Bridgeport is known for this, but it can occur elsewhere too.

I'm wondering though if this is caused by your graphicscard, I don't know a whole lot about hardware though, but from what I can find on Google, it may be lacking. Have you tried this?

The towns that I use are tinbrook and bridgepoint those towns lagg. I went to the website and failed because my graphic card is not good other than that I'am good on everything else. I still need to try that trick you told me about SHIFT+CTRL+C I think this will make the game run faster but not good enough.

Hello,
Both these towns have routing issues, I think you'd be happier in a smaller, better organised world like Sunset Valley. Especially Bridgeport is notorious.
Other than that, you could try getting the most out of your card by putting all settings on low, and lowering the screen resolution.
Unfortunately I think the game lag is caused by your graphicscard in this case and "resetsim" wont help much, if at all.
You may want to consider upgrading to a better card, which doesn't have to be all that expensive, you don't need a top-of-the-line graphicscard to improve your game play. My old Nvidia geforce 7600GS is up to the job on all medium settings.
