Re: PC Gamer help
Two things to consider: power and cooling.
What wattage is your power supply? Is it "just enough" or do you think you have power to spare? Many boards come with auxillary power inputs that you can run from the PSU to the board to give things like GPU's more juice.
If any gear is running hot, that could easily be leading to less than optimal performance as well (especially GPU & CPU).
Also - can you check RAM voltages, clock speeds and temp via the BIOS on your board?
