Alright well it all started about two weeks ago when I went to play BF2 and my frame rates went from 20-50 to 0-15. So I tried all the basics, restart, virus scan, spyware, de frag, clean up temp files and what not but nothing helped. So since I had an X800 pro I figured I would upgrade to a 7900 GT. Got the GT and nothing changed... So I did a mem test with my AMD 3700Sandiego @ 2.4 and got 116 errors. So I put it back to 2.2 and did a mem test and it was all good, no errors, tried bf2 but no relief. So I bought 2 gigs of OCZ Platinum hoping that was the answer, apparently it wasn't.
I tried Tomb Raider Legend which I got with the 7900 GT and it sucks too so I guess this isn't just a BF2 issue. I'm not sure what else to check I did all these scans in safe mode also but it didn't help. I tested the voltage on my 430W Thermaltake PSU and its fine. Tested my CPU and it appears just fine. Could my motherboard or my PCI-Express 16x slot be fried? Any help would be greatly appreciated, thanks in advance.
