XFX 790i ultra p07 bios problem

Okay, so I've got a big problem since I bought this computer that I thought was going to be pretty awesome and still give me room to upgrade later but now won't do crap. Let me first tell you what i got then I'll explain the problem.

>xfx 790i ultra
>intel q6600
>Patriot PC3 10666 DDR3 (7-7-7-20 1333)
>Two xfx 8600gt XXX

Everything was running good. It would only freeze every once in a while. However, it would always freeze if I tried to benchmark. Nforce tools would never let me overclock or underclock. All this was before I tried to update the bios.

I figured updating would fix these problems. So i burnt a CD and updated to p07 basically from the original bios. Immediately after that when windows would get to the desktop it would freeze. It has freezed everytime since then. I have adjusted the voltages, no change. I even flashed back to the original bois. Still freezes.

XFX told me I should reload windows and see if that fixes the problem. But I hate to loose everything I got and also I can't just go spend 80 bucks on a new hard drive just to see if that's the problem. Someone please shine some light on this situation.
