Sorry if I was rude before, I didn't mean to offend, it all just sounded too familiar.

Anyway, I'm not too familiar with ram, or the format of the read-out you have provided, but this definitely has ram-issue written all over it. I'm sure the experts will be here in no time...

It's alright, and if you really care, I am paying for it. The rig was 2000 dollars so my mom put it on her credit card and im paying 700 a month till it's paid for. If this RAM isn't 667MHZ like they said i'll just call em up and have them send me some.

Your ram is the correct speed. Its "quad pumped" because its ddr2. so its 166.x times 2 = 333.x times 2 = 667.

DDR2 SDRAM - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Then what could have possibly made such a drop in FPS and cause such choppy performance?

How often does it happen? You don't have something in the background running like a virus scan or something, do you?

Sorry I can't be of any help but you paid $2000 for that? You could get something that absolutely kicks it's *** for that much money.. Even for less then $1500. Pairing Value RAM with a GTX makes me sad .
