          Have you tried using OCCT or similar applet to monitor the CPU frequency, CPU core temp, vcore voltage, etc. while gaming to see if there is an obvious hardware issue? If that looks good you might try removing one GPU card to see how your system performs.

              tried that as well swapped cards to make sure both cards are adequate to run these games same results tho on card in ccc max is 1500 on memory clock where as the other is 2000 memory clock. would my memory be a bottleneck? and forgot to mention my icons on my desktop are constantly moving around every time i power on or restart the computer. i read that on another forum and they said it may be a driver issue

              Is she using Windows 10 too, or 7 or 8.1?

                  yeah she is using win 10 as well

                      Nah, RAM speed isn't really a factor unless you're using an APU. Power supply isn't something I'd trust with $1000 worth of hardware but it seems adequate enough. Does GPUz say both cards are running at PCIe 2.x x16? What about disabling Windows 10's driver updates and using Display Driver Uninstaller to do a clean installation? What if you create another partition and install (but do NOT activate) Windows 7 or 8 and see if you get the same issue.

                          GpuZ when i tested them it said they were both in 16x mode i have done a clean install with my display drivers tho now fiddling around with swapping cards something has gone wrong if i put a card in the top pci e slot the screen glitches and has rainbow styled lines going across the screen when i play a game or move the mouse then the screen goes black after a few minuted and i have to reset the computer. now if i put a card in the lower slot everything is normal but if i exit a game the screen is black until i click the mouse button so im going to rma my board hopefully everything goes back to normal tho i will be posting back here after i get a new one
