That's unbelievable that they would underclock it like that! I would be PISSED if that was my computer
, of course I wouldn't send it in if it was but still
anyhow, try getting a utility like riva tuner, (actually, your nvidia drivers should do the trick, just open the control panel) and turning the memory clock back at 900mhz.
Also, the memory clock would really explain it. I have a crappy little compaq, it only had 512mb ram, so I put in 512 from another computer. Turns out the ram I got from the other computer was horrible, so every time I did ANYTHING with graphics (games, youtube, simply scrolling a page) it would handle it fine, then freeze for a fraction of a sec, then be fine, freeze, fine, freeze, etc. In games it was horrible, because the duration of the freeze would increase the entire time, absolutely ruining the game.
