Not to be rude, but I have absolutely no idea what you are talking about. Please give your current system specs. Then someone may be able to help you.

Specifically, What:

CPU
RAM
Video Card
Power Supply
OS version
Games you are trying to play

What game?

Hard drives are measured in Gb not Ghz. Please restate the question as it makes no sence whatsoever...

I don't want to be mean either but,

this first is not a graphic's card problem, so why is it in the graphic's card category?

We cannot help you if you dont relax and give us specific information and what exactly your problem is.

We need this info really: (The stuff i starred and explained what is missing)

Processor: AMD 3200+ (*) Which core is it?
Video Card: nVidia 7800GTX (*) Which Manufacture is it?
Motherboard: Gigabyte K8 Trition
Power Supply: 450 Watt's (*) Which Manufacture is it?
Sound Card: Creative Soundblaster Audigy 2 ZS
Memory: 1Gb RAM (*) Which Manufacture is it?
Operating System: Windows XP Professional
Harddrive (*) Everything, size, manufacture, buffer, RPM, interface

Now onto the rest of my post, what exactly seems to be the problem?
i have interpreted it as your system must be running slow/sluggish even with all these higher end parts that have been used.

So you tried to reformat, but it's still sluggish.
Well did you scan for spyware, viruses, malware, adware, and other forms of malicious coding?
have you tired running chkdisk?
have you tried using a different harddrive?
is your harddrive in a raid array?
have you tried running your computer through a memtest86 scan? or prime 95 torcher test?

Edit:

Okay, so you play games with advanced scenery and other things, well at what resolution, what AA or AF, how detailed is it?

Edit again:

When you tell us your pc spec's could you put them into a list, so we don't have to decyphr through the typo's?

Your best bet before doing any kind of upgrading would be to do what i said.

- Restart your computer in safe mode.
- Run your Anti-Virus, Although norton sucks it might find something.
- Run a second Anti-Virus, like trend micro housecall or panda active scan.
Panda Active Scan
Trend Micro Housecall
- Next Run some spyware, adware, malware scanners.
Spybot Search And Destroy
Ad-Aware
- Restart your computer normally.

- Provide us with this info in which i ask for, if you don't know how to do what it is i'm asking just ask here or PM me..

- Hijackthis Log: HiJackThis
- A Screenshot of each of the following: Window's task manager process tab, Msconfig Service's tab, Msconfig Startup tab.

Once all that is don'e we should be able to make everything abit faster.

Edit: Once we get this thing up and running right, i have some advice for you.

I cant help if I cant decipher what you are saying. Some punctuation and a layout would help.

It would help if you followed the advice that people give, and try the programs people suggest. The more you do to help everyone figure out the problem, the quicker you'll potentially get an answer! I've only been here a while, read some other peoples problems and they got their answers quickest when they followed some advice and people could read what they write.

I hate to repost everything that has already been said, but you have to do this stuff otherwise people cant help.

If you dont understand one of these procedures, just ask. They dont bite here.

I think maybe you are in the wrong section. I didn't think you were impatient or that hard to understand at all. more the opposite in fact.

if you are patient with this site you will get the help you need. maybe you should repost this as a graphics question, as it seems to me that is more what your problem is. you might have a spyware problem but since you just reformatted your HD it's more likely you have your graphics turned up too high. maybe just try turning off some of your features and/or turning down your resolution.

good luck

Did you install the motherboards chipset drivers when you first installed the OS?
