yo man, its the 5870M, my friend has one with 2 of those cards, and i hope nothing happens :/ but back to topic, i hope you can solve it out, but i dont think you should be giving sharp decisions such as buying a gpu.

A quick update.
I took my son's 5870m's out of his machine and popped them into mine. Everything worked fine, confirming it was in fact the video cards. I acquired a couple new 5870's of my own to replace the 4870's and everything is back to normal.
Thanks for the info.
