Well, have you changed all settings back to stock and tried to replicate the error? Hard for us to diagnose something without knowing what steps you have taken towards troubleshooting. How are your temps?

I had the same VC as you and had the same problem so I RMAed it. I still have'nt got it back so I can't confirm but I haven't had the problem since. Try switching out the VC and see if that help if not then try something else

Afew things I would try, test out your CPU with prime95, test the ram with memtest85, and use ATITOOL to stress your GPU, in order to rule that out. Best thing to do is single out the problem. Also, try watching your GPU temps. How are they under load?

</div>For reading GPU temp it will yes just not for overclocking. <br />

I would Test your RAM with Windows memory diagnostic here : <a href="http://www.softpedia.com/get/Tweak/Memory-Tweak/Microsoft-Windows-Memory-Diagnostic.shtml" target="_blank">http://www.softpedia.com/get/Tweak/M...agnostic.shtml</a><br />
<br />
Now usually with bad RAM you would get a BSOD error screen however that isnt the case all the time so deffinately check the Memory. If not reset your CMOS again by removing the little battery from your motherboard for around 2-5mins and then put it back in..This will now have performed a full BIOS reset. <br />
<br />
Now as it seems to be an issue with you G-card i would advise that you make sure any extra power is hoooked up to it from your PSU and that its fully secured into your motherboard AGP/PCI-E socket.<br />
<br />
Also another thing would be to do the below and reinstalll drivers. <br />
<br />
Installing Graphic card driver efficiently!!! When you Update your graphics cards drivers theres ways that you should go about it. Follow these simple steps below. <br />
<br />
1.Download and install ''Driver Cleaner'' Here:<br />
<a href="http://www.drivercleaner.net/professional.html" target="_blank">http://www.drivercleaner.net/professional.html</a><br />
2.Uninstall your Current Display drivers such as your ''ATI'' or ''Nvidia'' drivers. <br />
3.Now run ''Driver cleaner'' and depending on the Drivers you have you will have to select either ''ATI'' or ''Nvidia'' from the drop down menu. Only select the main title of the driver in the drop down such as just ''ATI'' or ''Nvidia''<br />
4.Once you have selected Your driver click on the ''Start'' button and this will now start the driver cleaning process. ( Do this twice to be sure ) <br />
5.Now reboot your system and Download the latest Nvidia or ATI and go ahead and install them. <br />
<br />
Doing this avoids driver corruption and conflicts so you can now enjoy smooth gameplay.

ATI Tool can overclock Nvidia cards, I prefer it over coolbits and rivatuner since it has artifact and stress testing + temp reading all in one.

No you cant test memory when in a Windows environment as the memory is being used and there would be conflicts in the test. But dont worry you can put that program on a bootable CD.
