Shouldn't matter which PCIe x16 slot i use should it? And shouldn't matter if my MOBO is PCIe 2.0 and the new card is version 3.0 should it? Should be backwards compatible.

I'll keep the board updated to hopefully help other users as well, and any other tricks to try are appreciated.
Check if you got any new mobo drivers
Get Nvidia Geforce Experience. It will give you the latest drivers
The Pci-e 2.0 is more than enough bandwith in to take care of that card but if you have an PCI-E 3.0 use that instead.
BUT BE SURE! That the PCI-E port is 16x! Very important! check your mobo manual if you got one. Otherwise check the internet or look if the mobo has text next to the pci port. it usally says PCI-E 16x or PCI-E 1x etc..

Thanks for reply sisrace, my chipset drivers and BIOS are updated to most recent versions. Actually, did that before clean installing windows the first go around. And as for the PCIe version, I only have 2.0 on this board. My question may have been confusing I'll try to elaborate a bit. My MOBO has (2) PCIe x16. One called PCIe x16_1 the other PCIe x16_2.

See attached link for manual page from motherboard...

If you note on the left side of above image, the VGA configuration seems to want my card in the second slot. And I have the supply VGA switch card in slot_1. Does that look right?

You are using the GTX 650Ti in the blue PCI-E 16x slot?
If not do so.
Also. All graphics cards are backwards compatible but some may not be able to be used to its full potential. But the PCI-e 2.0 is cabable of ~8Gb/s gpu's and a GTX 660 ( that i have ) is running ram speeds up to ~6Gb/S so you really dont need PCI-E 3.0 unless you run a crazy fast and high end gpu

Thanks again for your time, yes the card is in the blue PCIe x16 slot. Wasn't sure if it mattered or not but it is and has been there this whole time.

All in all, so far no massive CPU usage since reseating, fingers crossed that's all it needed.

So far so good, not had any hiccups. I'll give it another 24 hours and if no problems i'll mark this as solved.
