A 8400GS is not really made for gaming. When you installed it, did you disable onboard video?
What mobo and cpu did you upgrade to?

And this is your card: http://www.newegg.co...N82E16814143177
And this is the game you are referring to: http://www.oblivionp...o/systemreq.php
When you use your 8400GS, does you entire system slow down, or is it just Oblivion giving you slower framerates? Remember to disable onboard video when using your 8400GS.
What are the framerates you get using onboard video compared with the framerates of your 8400GS when playing Oblivion?

Can you give me screenshots of your system page when you are using your onboard video, and when you are using your 8400Gs.
windows runs fine but all games are very slow and now under my system page it says i have AMD 800MHz instead of a 3.0GHz
You have updated you BIOS, right?

Now that makes sense... it is normal with most CPUs. They will underclock themselves to save power when they are not under load.
now it still says 800MHz but when the cpu is under load it jumps and stays at 3000MHz
If you feel that your onboard video is working better on games than your 8400GS use your onboard stuff for now.
If you are looking for a good gaming card for a low price... then consider a GeForce 9800 GTX+ or an ATI 4870. You could also try a GTS 250.

It's on the same tier as a 9600 GSO and a 8800GS. It looks like a good choice... hope this card does well for you! Let me know how it works out.
