I appreciate the help! That's really cool of you. People on this site are always so helpful. I'm bringing the card to my brothers later in the week. If the issue isn't present there we can safely narrow it down to the PSU, and if it is the GPU...though i'm not sure his motherboard has anti-surge on it.

I just had my anti-surge kick in while I was playing Civ 5 today and wanted to get started on pin pointing the problem. I'm suspecting PSU myself, but i could be wrong. Anyway i'll rock some RL with the anti-surge off until it crashes and report back with my findings (May be tomorrow. Almost 2:30am here now, not sure I can stay up much longer lol)

No problem, happy to help. Even though he dosent haven't anti-surge you may be able to notice some fluctuation on the GPU if that's the problem, what's the rated efficiency on that particular PSU your using? I'm at work and can't really look it up atm haha.

Personally I would RMA the power supply - the motherboard is getting weird incoming voltages so I don't see how it could be the graphics card. I mean there's a possibility it's the motherboard. Could have a few capacitors go out. That seems likely as well. I would test the power supply in your friends computer too. I know it's a PITA but if he's not having problems with the power supply on his system my first assumption would be the motherboard

Thats a good point. Possibly the caps are only storing voltage for a certain amount of time before failure.
