Nvidia drivers problem

Hey,

I just got my Asus GTX 470 and i already have a problem. First i install the highest nvidia driver, then i wanted to play GTA IV. But that lags really hard at the begin (later it gets better but still lagy). So i re-installed the drivers and that fix the problem. But not for long. When i shut down the computer and start it later back up, im back from where i started. So i hve to re-install the driver everyday when i want to game. It also gets lagy with Crysis, but games like Call of Duty don't lag at all. Is this maybe a sign from bottleneck?

PC Specs:
Os: Windows 7 Home Premium (64-Bit)
Motherboard: Asrock M3A785GXH
Processor: AMD Phenom(tm) II X3 720 Processor (3 CPUs), ~3.6GHz
Power Suply: 850 watt
Video Card: Asus GeForce GTX470
Second Video Card: XFX Geforce 9800 GT (PhysX)

Hope you guys can help me with this. :) 

Sorry for my bad English.

Well, it's not your PSU, I doubt your Phenom II X3 720 is bottlenecking it, especially overclocked...

Have you tried these steps:

1. Uninstalling nVidia GeForce GTX 470 graphics drivers.
2. Shut down, then bootup into Safe Mode.
3. Run Driver Sweeper (download it first before running into safe mode) and remove all leftover files.
4. Install newest nVidia drivers.

i don't wanna say this, but do you think you need a registry cleaner? or may be temporary glitch in the newest drivers. who knows?
