If you go cheap on your PS you get what you pay for.
The CPU stepping for the 965 is now 125w TDP, unless the OP has the original version. Update all your drivers with the guide in my sig, and use driver sweeper when necessary.
What I said still stands. He/she needs an adequate power supply.

Hi, if you read his specs he says he has a 1000w PSU. So I think he is ok with that one.

Sorry i dont know why it came out to say "1 00w" in my system specs ( i copied and pasted), i have a 750watt power supply. Downloading everything from the asus website as we speak. Do you think my power supply is not enough power?

It is if you only have one Video card installed. No, if you have two. Your CPU eats a lot of power by itself, then your DVD drives and HD drives, and MOBO, RAM, etc.... Main thing is to have a good quality power supply. It has to have not only the watts but the amps.
+3.3V@40A,+5V@40A,+12V1@18A,+12V2@18A,+12V3@28A,
+12V4@28A,+12V5@18A,+12V6@18A,-12V@0.8A,+5VSB@3. 5A

Plus make sure it is 80 Plus certified. I have done some more research on this, and many users that have a similar setup as yours, have an 850watt ps. I know that there are some that post here that will disagree, but it is because they either don't have the bucks or the experience or both. Never, ever skimp on your power supply.
