ok guyz im stuck, ive been posting about on toms to find a solution to my problem but nothings come to work yet.
My pc lags like it thinks its a master system running crysis on max. Its now doing it on every game new or old. I built the pc my self only knowing
how to put the parts together and a little other knowlage. So i think its time to reformat and start from scratch and find out how to setup my pc properly this time.
Can any one help me from start to finish on what drivers etc i must have and bios settings for my hardware. Im willing to pay if any one could set my pc up perfectly and
make it run as it should. I belive i should still beable to run any game on med and atm im running on very low and still lagging bad.
any info you need please let me know. once ive fixed it who ever helped me ill surly pay them for the kind help

1. Clear CMOS and load defaults. Make no other changes to BIOS.
2. Disconnect all HDs except the one to be used as "C"
3. Re-install Win7 reformatting (clearing) the entire HD.
4. Boot into Windows.
5. Load the chipset drivers provided on the CD that came with the mobo, rebooting after each install.
6. If you have a wired connection, you now should have Internet access. If you are using wireless, do whatever you have to do to enable it and connect.
7. Download Prime95, Furmark, and CPUID's Hardware Monitor.
8. Run Prime95 (with "Detect Rounding Errors" checked) on all cores, watching temperatures with Hardware Monitor. If it crashes for other than heat reasons, its likely a memory problem.
9. Go to nVidia's web site and use auto-detect to let them suggest the driver to download. Download and install the drivers. Reboot.
10. Run Furmark, same rules as in #8.
11. Run Prime95 and Furmark together if you can, watching heat carefully.
Load a game you know your FPS for, and see if your FPS is restored.
After you are satisfied things are better or no different, you can think about hooking aup other drives (virus?), or installing the latest mobo drivers from the web site.
Do so one at a time, and re-verify your FPS is maintained.

is this all the drivers i need?
Well well. some ones just told me to run malwarebytes in safemode and it found a good few infections, so i deleted them and now i can play games 10x less lag as before.
Its still not as it should be but a dam sight better. But time to format. will reply once done
Well, you found some viri - and by far the best way to get rid of them for sure is to reformat as suggested on an isolated "C" drive.
Scroll back and see JSC's comment if you haven't - since you've been burned once, at some point you need to install firewall and antivirus. Personally, I prefer to do this after the basic drivers are loaded, but BEFORE you go to ANY other sites. OTOH, its hard to argue with doing them before connecting to any network or going on line . . . if you can.
