Horrible drop in performance

  1. I am currently running:

    ASRock 939 Dual SATAII
    Athlon 64 3700+ San Diego
    2 x 512 pc3200
    120GB WD SATA II
    40GB IDE
    GeForce 6800

    I just purchased the 120 GB hard drive a few days ago and decided to do a complete wipe of my old hard drive and instal the OS on the new one. I did this and everything works great. I have all the current drivers and such but I have one huge problem. The system can barely play games at the level I could on the old HDD. I got a 939 in PCMark 06!!!. It is riduculous. I found a link to a thread with people having problems with this board and AGP cards. However I followed their instructions but to no avail. After looking at my PCMark 06 test results I saw that it listed my videocards core clock speed at 10mhz, yet the actual clock speed listed in the nVidia tab is 325mhz. I'm wondering what could be wrong...

    did you check to see what AGP speed your card is operating at? also if the board has had alot of problmes then it is very likely there are bios updates available that address those problems.
