Graphic Card Issue. (Gigabyte Geforce Gtx 470 Ud)

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey!
The recent few months since I got my GTX 470, it's been, to say, crashing and/or rebooting.

What happens is, while I'm playing a game, at random intervals the screen freezes and becomes filled with "random positioned distorted lumps of pixels", and then proceeds to drawing a black screen, then starting up again, going back to normal. (The whole procedure takes about 3-5 seconds.

Games that I have experienced the occurance:
Starcraft II
Fallout: New Vegas
Counter-Strike: Source
Darksiders (This game is where the crashes occur most frequent.)
Among others, but these are the main ones I've played/can remember.
(I played alot of WoW, and I had no crashing in it whatsoever, didn't have a single crash.)

I've been searching for a solution to this for quite a while, and this is not my first forum that I visit.
I've tried changing my RAM, aswell as my motherboard and processor. (And drivers are up to date)

The only associated problem I have had with getting my GPU card would be my soundcard, which crackled before, but isn't nearly as frequent since I changed some settings in the bus frequency (The videocard problem didn't noticeably change after this).

I really wish It doesn't have anything to do with the card itself malfunctioning, which would have me end up buying a new card.

My current specc:
Windows 7
GPU: GTX 470
CPU: Intel i7 Quad, 875K
Power Supply: Corsair HX 850W 80+
Motherboard: Gigabyte GA-P55A-UD4
RAM: Corsair DOMINATOR GT DHX+ (4GB)
Monitor: LG TFT E2240T-PN LED, using DVI.
Sound Card (Non-intergrated): Creative Sound Blaster X-Fi Titanium

(It's not an heat issue)
Any help is wildly appreciated!
