make sure mb runnng the newest bios f10a. in the nvidia control panel there two setings one for 2 monitors and one for performace/power. make sure if your using one monitor the card set to one monitor and performace. also make sure all the power plugs on the video card are on tight. if the card is starving for power it going to declock it self.
