To be honest I don't know what to blame anymore the card overclocks like a monster and plays games without crashing. I've never had a driver crash on me in game. But when it comes to random browsing and or watching videos with like vlc or just when it's idle that's where it comes into play. On another note sometimes this won't happen for a week or two and other times it'll happen too frequent.

There is a long thread on the nvidia forums about unstable GTX 560 Ti's

http://forums.nvidia.com/index.php?showtopic=193106

Some people have reported that the web browsing crashes (sometimes) also go away when gpu acceleration is disabled in FireFox. I tried to crash my GTX 580 (while on 280.26 drivers) in firefox (gpu acceleration enabled), while watching 1080p HD youtube videos and it did not crash.

Instead of blaming drivers ... instead, let's first consider that it could be a hardware problem. So far, I am the only person in this thread who is making any attempt to determine if it is a hardware problem.
We aren't guessing that it's drivers, we came to that conclusion based on the prior circumstances that point towards it being drivers, namely that it's been these drivers doing exactly this on these cards. You can continue your investigation into whatever you think it could be and I've got no interest in convincing you that I'm right, but if the OP wants to fix the problem, he will change his drivers.

What is your core voltage at 2D clocks (50MHz)?
Try to increase this voltage a little.
Maybe it will help.

I personally began getting sporadic TDRs with the 280.26 drivers in Firefox w/HW acceleration enabled (never in any games however), and rolled back to 275.33. I've had no driver crashes in the last month and a half.
