Default Problem with A7v880 mobo

I'm having problems with games freezing when I play them with my new mobo. Here are my system specs.

Asus A7V880 Socket A motherboard
MSI Radeon 9800xt
768mb ram
80gb western digital hard drive
350 watt psu

Anyone else had this kind of problem with this motherboard?

Did you update the bios on your new board? I'm not real familiar with Asus mobo's but I have yet to find an MSI or DFI that dosen't need a bios flash when I set them up.
Barring that, how old is that PS? Is it a generic one that came with the case or what? Older power supplies can be a pain when used to power newer boards. Most of the newer boards require a very tightly controlled power supply, and will operate erraticlly if at all when hooked up to one of those generic PS's.
Anyway, hope it works out for you.
I\'m already visualizing the duct tape over your mouth...

I've done a little more research and found other people that had this problem. I guess that this mobo didnt provide enough VCORE power, so it needed to be raised from 1.6 to 1.7 volts. This seemed to have worked.
