I upgraded my custom built pc that I haven't touched in a while due to burned out parts.
Before I could run the game OBLIVION without any glitches or lagging, but it seems that now that it lags a bit even when I lower the graphics and effects about half way. Not that this glitching is only in that game, I dont play much games, but It's the most noticeable lag.
I feel that taking the parts I have into consideration it shouldn't be lagging at all.
(btw I'm new to this site).

Specs:
Foxconn A78AX-S Motherboard.
GeForce GTX 260 Graphics Card.
G.SKILL 4GB (2 x 2GB).
AMD Phenom II X4 965 Black Edition Deneb 3.4GHz 4 x 512KB L2 Cache 6MB L3 Cache Socket AM3 125W Quad-Core Processor .
500gb seagate harddrive.

my old pc was
Foxconn A78AX-S Motherboard.
GeForce GTX 260 Graphics Card.
different G.Skill 4GB (2 x 2GB)
and an AMD 3.1 GHz dual core processor
500gb seagate harddrive.

Is that a completely new build with fresh OS installation.? Also, which PSU are you running.? Are you sure its providing the required power neatly to all of your components.?

Try testing your RAM with memest for 4-8hrs and see if it reports any errors
