I haven't tried streaming video from a different web browser (just in case that makes a difference) or by playing a DVD; I'll see if those also cause the crash, just out of curiosity if nothing else.
I had HWINFO recording during the last crash, the log is attached. I was running Dead Island while streaming youtube videos to reproduce the error. Attachment 193042
EDIT: Tried using a different browser for video playback. Same old thing, got the crash.
It definitely appears to be display card related for the crashes, and it may very well be hardware related. When the crash occurred, the GPU sensors gave very strange readings. The fan's RPMs dropped to 0, yet the GPU sent that the fan was running at 100%. The memory clock changed from 1000.0 MHz to 3196.9 MHz, the GPU clock changed from 775 MHz to 13.7 MHz, and the GPU utilization dropped from 100% to 0%. Temperatures and Voltages look good.
It could be a faulty power supply (though as I said, Voltages look good, so I don't think this is the case), a bad motherboard slot, or the graphics card itself was damaged during transfer. The only way to really test these is to find another graphics card, another power supply, or use a multimeter on the power supply to rule them out.
