"it should have been 3200MHz x4 right??"

There's nothing wrong. The power saving feature (Cool-n-Quiet) is enabled & doing it's job. If you disable the feature, the CPU will run at full speed at all times, even at idle. Is that what you want? Would you want the engine in your car running at 5000 RPMs while waiting at a red light? And the CPU settings at full speed are 200MHz x16, not "3200MHz x 4"

"and a 9500 gt"

If you can afford it, replace the video card, especially if you're a gamer. The 9500GT is not a gaming card.

"why is this happening??"

More than likely you have a weak power supply. What is the make/model/wattage & amperage specs?

"its a foxin model:fsp450"

FSP is usually Fortron Source which is generally a reliable brand. I have my doubts about this unit though, especially if it came with the "cabin". Apparently it's a cheapie unit from India. The specs are not very good, especially for a modern system. It might be OK for an old P2 or P3 system, but not an AMD Phenom II system. There's not enough amperage on the +12v rail & too much for little used +5v & +3.3v rails.

+5v @ 32A
+3.3v @ 26A
+12v @ 16A

ok but can this cause majour problems like damage the cpu or anything i mean it runs perfectly fine after it switches on,because it may take me abt 8-9 days to change the smps.

I can't say that it will or won't cause problems. I can only tell you that I never would never have used it in a Phenom II system.
