Try for a BIOS update... Your GPU isn't great, and the original Phenoms were known to be a bit problematic...

yeah this was just a small and inexpensive project i did about a year ago for an entertainment system. i should have went with a phenom II 3.2ghz and regret it greatly lol. thanks for the suggestion though, i'll update on how it works out.
