I also tried overclocking the card and running 3d mark, and it seems to be running slower when overclocked. I clocked it to 450 core and 900 memory.
what could be wrong?

btw, should i be using asus drivers or nvidia drivers?

Use Rivatuner's Hardware monitor to observe GPU and Memory speeds when running games that appear to be running slow. Because, it may just be your card is throttling back at your overclocked speeds ??

Also, for drivers, you should be trying the latest Nvidia as they become available, if only because of bug fixes. Drivers from Manufactureres sites always lag a long way behind, and are therefore always out of date with what Nvidia has released !
The more I know, the more I know I don't know

Intel P4 3.2 @ 3.85GHz (ASUS P4C800E-Deluxe)
BFG 6800GS (16x1,6vp) @ 300/430/1200.

Driver, 82.12 :-
Aquamark3, 75039
