Thanks for all your help and input, I decided to start troubleshooting
things piece by piece, and started with the simplest thing first. I found
out what the problem is/was..... While Antec is "supposed" to be a good
power supply, apparently I got a dud. I took the pwr supply out of my server
stuffed it into my system, and fire'd it up this morning @400mhz fsb 1.8v
Vcore. And Wala, system ran, CPU stayed about 114-125 < up to 125 when
playing BF2> Which, I was able to raise my rez up to 1280x960 <I think,
something like that> 2xaa and was getting 50-74 fps. Played again when I got
up, and ran Aquamark3d 49509, and 3dmark 03 17631. My voltages dont vary as
much as they did. So, I guess I'll be buying a new power supply, enough to
handle 2hd's, cdrom, DVD burner, my video card and all my fans. I think I'll
invest in a watercooler that way I can cut down on required power, and cool
it better, and that way when I do upgrade to my athlon 64 system I can just
change the waterblock on my CPU.
Thanks again for everyone who wrote.
