Default 6800 GT Memory problem??

Hey guys,

Hey I am curious if anyone has had this problem or something like it. Well the problem is my machine is not acting up to snuff in 3D games. What happens is when 3 or more monsters/characters are onscreen at once I get a lot of what looks like memory swapping/caching. I have looked at the LONG thread on Stuttering but I have a nforce2 board and it seems a lot of people have had problems with nforce3. The slowness/swapping has happened in Warcraft 3, FEAR, COD2, GUN, Path of NEO. I also believe my performance is taking a hit somewhere due to my 3dmark05 score of 3500. I have checked compariable rigs and they all hit mid 5000's.

I have tried to use nvidia ntune-nvperformance.exe to tune my memory for best performance, but when I try this I either get a lockup or my machine reboots. This is why I think the memory on the chip might be damaged...but could it be something else?? I am just seeing if anyone has an suggestions....not really wanting to spend a bunch of cash on a new videocard.

Lastly I have tried my roommates Geforce 4400 and Games like GUN, COD2 run a lot better on my machine with that card than my 6800. OTher games like FEAR and NEO don't run as well do to DirectX9 features and such.
