Default LONG lockups while playing games on 6800Ultra

For some reason everytime I play a game I encounter frequent lockups which last for at least 8-10 seconds. They happen frequently. My setup is in my sig so you can see what I have and could be contributing. I tried to latest driver release and also the current beta drviers. Both have the same issue. I also went through 3 power supplies (on a side not my bad luck worked and somehow the one that was supposed to be the weakest PSU pushed the most on the 12v rail ). The temperatures on the card are also not high. I really do not know what to do. I really finally want to start using this computer for gaming. I didn't pay $1900 to surf the internet (could have used the crap I got in my basement for that)....
Thanks for any help.
