Pny 9600 GT Graphic card problems

Hi everyone, few months now i upgraded from a 7600 gs graphic card to 9600 gt graphic card, on my old card i could play Counterstrike Source on highest graphics, without any fps drops or lagg, i could play any RPG games with same thing, no fps drop or lag.

But since i got my new card, I really cant play any new games at all... And i feel like even old games are not working.
Some guy told me that if the card is too hot it could drop fps, soo i got Rivatune and almost maxed the Fan speed and i still got the same FPS drops.

My specs are

AMD 64, 4800+ single core
PNY 9600 gt
3.5gb Ram
250 gb hard drive.

Thank you for the help.

PS could overclocking it improve fps?
