If its wireless, match your device from here:
ATHEROS Wireless drivers for Windows

If its not a wireless, match your device from here:
ATHEROS Network drivers for Windows

Re furmark:

6) Watch for artifacts on the screen, and keep an eye on the temperature log.
If you see artifacts, or the temperature levels out, stop the test.

GPU usage at 99% .... that's crash prone.
It's definitely crash if high graphics rich games are played with it.

thats the problem though, it crashes while on desktop. also the fact that this graphics card works perfectly fin in other computers makes me wonder if it is the MB failing?

UPDATE: it could also be the fact that my CPU is older model possibly causing a bottleneck situation with my GPU?
