Northq Giant Reactor Extreme 1000 Watt - isn't han

I just bought enough new pc parts for a homebuilt gamer pc.

Nvidia nForce 650i SLI
Intel Core 2 Quad 2,44GHz
2 Gigabytes of DDR2 RAM, 667 MHz
2x GeForce 8800GT
Northq Reactor Extreme 1000 Watt

So, me and a friend of mine built the thing. It all went fine, and Windows Vista Ultimate, 32-bit version, was successfully installed.

However, everything isn't as it should be. I installed Crysis, and had pretty high settings on, which should work. The result? It was lagging ever more than my old computer.

We tried to remove one of the cards, to see if it was better that way, but it wasn't. We reinstalled the card, and now this card is making a lot of noise.

I've installed the newest drivers for the cards and all the hotfixes for Vista I could find.

The power supply should be able to run this system perfectly, so I'm out of clues here. What's wrong?

I'll be grateful for answers, 'cause I'm pretty disappointed right now..
