    The extra heat from your cpu @1gig might be causing your graphics card to overheat...

    What's cpu temp when your proc is at 1gig and full load? As I said before I'd try running with the case side off, if this solves your problem you know there's too much heat somewhere, and if your cpu 'aint too hot (less then 50*C) it's probably your graphics card...
