Default Lag while gaming?

Ok well I don't know if this is related to software or hardware, but I am stumped

All of the games that I have been playing lately (valve's orange box, bad comany 2, etc) have this nasty problem. They run fine for 10 or so seconds the freeze for a few seconds, followed by about 5 seconds of 1fps then back to normal for 10 seconds and rinse, lather, repeat.

Its a fresh install of windows 7 ultimate, newest nvidia drivers, cleaned heat-sinks, fully operational fans, new power supply, new sata cable, reseated video card and cpu, etc... I am lost... Is my hardware finally becoming outdated? I hope not

cpu: Athlon II x2 240
Ram: 2gb ocz gold ddr2-800
GPU xfx geforce 9800GT
hdd: seagate barracuda 320gb 16mb cache sata 3.0
550w corsair psu

btw im pushing these all at 1080p, no temp stuttering at 720p, or 1080p with low settings, moderate at med settings, bad at high settings. I hear my fan kicking on alot but no dust on it (gpu), all of my case fans work, so its not overheating, its not a power issue, so I believe it may be a software issue but i have no clue where to start.

Reinstalling forceware as I type.

what is the temp?

You are really pushing a 9800gt. The TIM could be drying up, despite all the fans.

full load, gpu 75, cpu 58, ambient temp is 80f. air cooled, looks like the new forceware fixed glitching... further testing will only tell

10min in, after intense firefight with many moving objects and scenes, no lag.

EDIT: fixed, it was my drivers XD
