All righty!
Damn, I've been tweaking all day.... The actual problem in short, is that my Asus HD 7970 DC II doesn't give 500fps in css anymore, but 100-150.... I'll give you the prehistoric details:

I have got a completely new build now: i5 3570k, GGBT GA-Z77X-UD5H, Asus HD 7970 DC II, 8Gb Corsair XMS3 1600mhz, Corsair HX650w.

I set up my build yesterday, installed all programs and every driver. Then i played skyrim, installed loads of mods for better graphics, still running at 60fps v/sync on. Early today I tried Counter-Strike: Source, everything at max 400-500 fps. I ran Crysis 1, 40-60 fps.

Then at some point... I tried Skyrim again, where I got these fucked up lines... I made a topic asking for help.

Now everything I do becomes rather unclear, as loads of stuff happen. I think i first installed latest W7 updates. Went ***.
It didn't install the updates, and when I tried CS:S again my fps weren't right. like 80-100... yes, i forgot to mention (which i mentioned in the nexus-topic i linked) that I had tried overclocking CPU and GPU. But all that was set back to default settings through all this ... stuff... Sorry for being unclear D:

Now, I figured I'd try everything to get the W7 updates installed. It showed to be a hell of a problem. It was the SP1 pack that wouldn't install. But after using some MS hotfixes, I actually managed to install the SP1!! :D  BUT -still same problem in CS:S....

So I have now reinstalled Direct X, AMD CCC, Gigabyte drivers and so on. I have overclocked and underclocked CPU and GPU, but I can't get the same performance as I had at an earlier point! It really annoys me.

Now, I must say about Skyrim; the black lines are removed! So the Skyrim problem isn't a problem anymore. (Without any graphics mods installed in skyrim atm, i run at 60fps... Don't know how it will be with more mods)

and OH HOLY ***! Tested Crysis again. 7-8 fps. Now that is bad, right?

Asus 7970 clock settings:
GPU Clock 950mhz
Memory 5600mhz (with Asus GPU Tweak)
"High performance memory clock settings" 1375 in AMD CCC. These were all default i think.

CPU 3570k clocks:
~4ghz BCLK 102mhz.

Now PLEASE HELP ME!! I'm not an expert, I've just used google... and I am clueless of what to do!
I can restore to an earlier system point, but I'm not sure what ill miss. Actually... My earliest restore point (as i can see) is when the SP1 got installed :o  and (in my theory) that wouldn't change anything!

Please admins, smart folk, somebody help me out. I don't want to reinstall whole Windows :p  (btw, if this is wrong thread place, I'm sorry!)
