My money is on the 9600 being the bottleneck, AMD RoX!

isnt the 9600 a video card? Not for graphics rendering but hd video right?

Is that a quality PSU or a cheapo? Could be the signs of a PSU closing in on death.

I agree with Calinkula, It sounds like it may be your power supply. I say this because when you are opening up a game or doing something that is intensive on your graphics card, it puts more load onto your psu to power the gpu. If this is the case, I'd change your psu right away to avaid potental damage to your mobo/graphics card. I learned the hard way about this btw, just this past week. Good luck!
