I have just got a new 8800GT to replace my 6600GT, and i cannot tell one difference.
my specs are

8800GT (its the OC2 one, from bfg. so its better than the normal one!"
3.6ghz Dualcore
2gb ram
380gb hdd
550w psu (the gfx card has its own 250w psu)
1cpu fan, 2 smaller fans circulating air.
1400x900 resolution
windows xp.
im just trying to list anything that would prevent it from running properly.

now i have all the updated drivers, clean install of xp. and i still get 20-30 fps on guildwars, lineage2, dont even go there with UT3 or crysis. cant even handle low-medium on both.

I'm assuming that you have no viruses since you just reinstalled your XP.

Since you stated that your performance after replacing your video card is the same, I think that the problem lies in the video card.

I'm not so sure your not correct. It may well be your temps- based on two small fans and one on with the cpu. Your running an awful lot of hardware for two small fans. open the side case and see what happens to the temps. Jazz
ps: some put a large fan on the open side to see if things get better.

the two fans are on the side of the case, if i take the cover of it removes the 2 fans, theres a vent on the side there attached to, one sucks cold air in, one blows warm air out and it feels cold inside
