I believe that motherboard (if it's like my 990FX Sabertooth) has a MemOK button on it.

Try using that and seeing if your RAM is causing a problem. Also, check in your BIOS what your RAM is set at. Sometimes it underclocks RAM automatically, my Saberkitten did it to me.

Like some other people said--make sure your GPU and RAM are seated correctly, make sure you have all of your drivers updated.

Other than that, you could have a defective part, or have damaged a GPU when removing it.


Good luck, and I hope you figure it out!

I clocked my cards up slightly, ill default them. I ran my old build with them at the same OC settings fine though.

Also i downloaded the original Bioshock (forgot to mention) and it ran flawlessly in eyefinity.. I know its an older game but it had some pretty sweet graphics for the time. If it was a GPU issue that game would have been experiencing similar issues. I dont think the GPU hardware would be the issue. : /

On the board i have a button thats called "Bios Flashback" below it is the USB port you place the stick to load the BIOS... from here im assuming i can flash the new bios.. i Just watched a video on youtube of somebody flashing a bios that way. I assume flashing a bios means updating? sorry im still a newb after 8 years of managing my own builds and PCS.

Not just "default them". Uninstall every GPU related driver and programs ( AB/Kombuster included,don't save any profiles), and reinstall drivers,
preferably those that you knew to be working with your old PC.

I believe so, but I'm at work right now and I haven't had to use that yet. I'll take a look when I go home.

Okay, so i may have found my issue, i haven't gotten home yet so ill test this when im home. Currently my RAM is in DIMMS A1/ A2, my motherboard recommends i use A2/B2. Could this be why im having a strange performance decrease?
