Bad Motherboard?

Hello again,

Basically I've been facing a issue with BF2 where when there are a lot of players in a server. My frame lates go down to even 40 at a 1024x768 resolution. Same thing happens with LOW settings. Huh? Lowest possible settings, and same issue? What's up with that? This mostly happens when there are over 10 players, and some tanks, fire fights, etc infront of me. Not only online, but in single player too. I also get some BSODs (0x7F or something similar to that). I turned my overclock off, and it got rid of the BSOD.

Today I finished formating, and installing a brand new XP Home SP2 on my new 200GB SATA HD. I've tried almost every driver for my graphics card. I've also even RMAd my X1800XT (because I thought it was the graphics card), and got me a X1900XT - even though my X1800XT wasn't bad. I also ran MemTest86 on each module of RAM I have. I ran tests from 0-9, with 30 passes on each test without any errors. Ok, so it's not my RAM, nor my graphics card, not even my sound card (which I uninstalled, removed and tested without). I've come down to my motherboard, could it possibly be my motherboard? I'm going to a computer store and getting a new motherboard to test if I still get this issue. But for now, can anyone suggest what can be wrong?

PS. I've cleared CMOS plenty of times, and also updated my BIOS to 1014.

Thanks,
Matt

EDIT: Alright, well after a couple of hours of idleing I started up FireFox, and received a STOP 0x0000007F BSOD. I got this too while installing windows, but I removed the overclock and it fixed it. My overclock is off, but I received this error. Microsoft's site says I may have a bad motherboard, which is probably right. My RAM, as stated, are fine.

Not sure why when you change the settings it stays the same but I wouldn't be complaining about 40FPS. I only dream of 40 FPS in most online games and it's not that bad.

40 FPS is no where near my likings. I should'nt be even going below 70 FPS with such a low resoultion and lowest settings.
