see specs in sig.

i had the 680i TR version which wasnt good for overclocking so i RMAed it for the T1 version. Installed the e8400 now running at 3.6Ghz Prime95 solid for about 12 hours. Now, my games lag like crazy, especially CoD4. the TR board at least gave me an average of about 50-70fps depending on smoke/explosions. Now everything is running at 40fps or lower. if im inside or nothing is going on i get 60-100fps. ive tried forceware various versions of forceware drivers
such as 175.16 to 177.39 and .40. What the hell is going on here?

PSU specs and load temps on card?

I'm leaning towards the PSU though...

tagan 580W certified for single 8800gtx. card temps idle 53-56 load 70-72. I just realized that my AUX 12pin molex connector wasn't plugged in on the mobo. However, I plugged it in and it seems it made things worse. im in the process of looking through my bios and trying different drivers.
