@ Thermaltake - I will give defrag a shot. I did just install vista though so I don't know if it will help much.

@ dstoler - I have 2 sticks of corsair ram. 4 GB each.

Shouldnt that core clock be more than 804? Or is that 804 x 4 cores? I ask cause my x2 shows the total clocks, not per core clock. Looks like the CPU is in safe mode?

He probably just has Cool N Quiet or whatever AMD calls it turned on.

De-frag and run MSCONFIG to check what programs are starting on boot up.

I've seen a few pple running Vista and their machines run horrible, so this may also be a problem.

The only other thing I can think of, is perhaps your HDD is on its way out. When your playing games most of the time the majority of files required are loaded in ram, hence even if your hdd is dead slow, fps usually isn't affected. Do you know what HDD you have? and how old is it?
My HD is a Western Digital Caviar Blue. I purchased it about 6 months ago brand new.

yes your phenomII has a 1333mhz memory controller. But you can overclock that. I had mine running 1700+. if you turn up your cpu/nb frequency to around 215 and multiplier to X16 it will give you a nice little boost to the system. and this is low enough where it doesnt need a voltage bump or anything. manually set your timings for dram to 8, 8, 8, 22, 30 and that will make them run a little faster. set your ram to 1333 and the overclock of the cpu/nb will raise it and your ratio might even change to 3:8. you will be running at 3.440 Ghz at this setting and you might wanna make the ht multiplier as close to 2000mhz as you can so you dont experience instability.

Yeah, he could do that once he gets his system stable @ stock settings. He shouldn't be experiencing the issues he is, so overclocking/tighter timings isn't really the answer.

OP, do you have another PSU, or maybe a friend's PSU you could borrow? I'm 90% sure that is your issue here. I'd send you my spare to borrow, but I don't feel like paying for shipping a PSU.

I don't have any extras that are not junk ones

dang. I could be wrong, but I believe that is your issue here. I'd just say you could just have my old one, but it was $80 when I bought it.

I just went back to the newegg link of your case/psu. I don't typically trust newegg reviews, but for this product they are scattered w/ users reporting the PSU is junk.

[edit]
Not to mention gigabyte require a minimum 500w PSU, and nvidia recommends a 550w PSU for gtx 560 ti's. Now those recommendations are typically overrated a bit by the manufacturer to make sure the consumer has more than enough power. I believe the TDP of your gtx560ti is probably around 175w or so, and your CPU another 125w, that's 300w right there, and that PSU they bundled w/ that case is 420W Max power, meaning probably around 320-350W continuous power, if that.
