    I just helped my roommate build a budget gaming pc and this is what we got.

    Ram: G.SKILL Ripjaws Series 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR3 SDRAM DDR3 1600
    Proc: AMD Phenom II X4 955 Black Edition Deneb 3.2GHz Socket AM3 125W
    Video: ECS N9600GT-1GMS-F GeForce 9600 GT 1GB 128-bit GDDR2 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP
    OS: Win 7 ultimate 64

    After putting it together we ran the windows performance index and its getting good scores for everything but Aero Graphics.. its scoring a 4.4(i get 5.9 in vista on my 9600gt), it gets 6.4 for gaming graphics. We ran 3dmark vantage and the video card is scoring just over 1k and processor is getting 11k. I ran the 3dmark on my machine as comparison(q6600@3.0, 9600gt 512mb, 4gigs ddr800, abit p35 mobo, vista 64) and scored over 4k video and over 22k cpu. His 9600gt is a 1gb card and all in all his pc should be beating mine.

    I've tried installing the chipset drivers that came with the mobo, and the newest ones from the site. I've tried a few different nvidia drivers including the newest that came out yesterday and back to 8.5's.

    I've checked, his 9600gt has power connected and is running at 16x 2.0 pcie.

    I'm not really sure what else to do here, any ideas or help would be appriciated. We are just kinda disappointed it the results so far.

    I'm wondering if this is an issue with win7 and 9600gt or maybe the motherboard and the 9600gt

    You haven't mention how the performance is when you actually run the the games run fine? Check if there are performance issues in games..stuttering..low frame rate etc.

    What brand PSU and power output? having an underated PSU can cause your system to run well below standard.
