I had it working, then I decided to try my overclockign settings once again, and for soem reason my settings that worked before, would not work no more... and when I tried to run my game (Counterstrike) it locked up after I started a game. I ended up hitting ctrl-alt-delete and my computer restarted?
now I reset back down to defaults, and now when I run games, lots of things are NOT drawing properly while in game... (desktop is fine)
can someone tell me if this could be the cause of possible overheating my gpu from o/c'ing to aggressively? (I was going a bit nuts) :S:S
I know the extremeG drivers said it was more design for the 6600 and 6800 or osemthing.. but it also said it should work with all fx series i thought...

Tearing and artifacts are main signs of heat but this sounds close to heat and also corruption.
Anyways I say try some older drivers or the official nVidia drivers and see what happens. This time run at stock speeds and when you update/downgrade your drivers have your GPU at stock speeds if they were not already.
