glad u solved it,
overclocking requires more power from Ur power supply and the unit is under enough load with the current setup i would not risk overclocking especially since u have a powerful graphics card and a good CPU
I would rather find it weird that u have 4GB of ram but running on a 32-bit OS the OS will not use more than 3.25GB or a little bit less, if u want to take advantage of 4Gigs install a 64-bit OS

is this ur power supply ?
http://www.tigerdirect.com/applicat...
it appears it does not have SLI support, so probably its not giving enough juice for both 560's.
The next thing to consider is the temperature download gpu-z. Check ur temp at idle and when ur gaming,
I would like u to take out one of the 560's and let the pc run on one graphics card install the drivers for it and check if it happens again,
post back results

Hi thank you for replying, but I think I may have fixed the problem. I went through and checked everything and found out that I had one card overclocked and the other was still set at factory settings, so I set both cards back to factory settings and now both cards run smoothly. Im getting on average 80-100 % usage on both cards simultaneously.

what benefits would upgrading to 64-bit give me?
