I'm getting System Interrupts consistently when my GTX580 has to render 3d video while gaming. I traced the offending drivers with Latency Monitor and they are: nvlddmkm.sys, dxgkrnl.sys, usbport.sys, ataport.sys, hal.dll. There may be one or two others but those are the main culprits.
This occurs on a clean install of Windows 7 Ultimate 64 bit. I've updated all drivers for every hardware component and peripheral. Updated the Bios/chipsets. I've also tried every supposed "fix" I could find online. Nothing works.
I can get through 1 or 2 matches in Battlefield 3 with no hiccups, then at the start of the next match, system interrupts maxes one of my cores and I get severe framerate drops and audio stuttering. I can also play through one level of Crysis 2 on maxed settings, however, when the next level loads, system interrupts make the game unplayable. The GTX580 I have works GREAT, when it's working, but the fact that it works fine until a new map is loaded has me stumped.
The ONLY ways to fix the issue is to reboot or go into Device Manager and Disable the Gtx 580. This is NOT a solution. It only confirms that the card is the issue. I tried moving the card to another slot, thinking that it was a possible IRQ conflict, this did not solve the problem. I have the latest Nvidia drivers. Reverting to older drivers does not rectify the issue either.
I'm at my wits end here, somebody help! Do I need to RMA the card or is this a software/driver issue?
The card passes a stress test with OC Scanner with no artifacts and works great when there's no system interrupts so I'm leaning torwards it being a software issue.

I have attached my DxDiag. Please look through it and help me fix this issue.
You'll probably notice that I'm running low on HD space. This has nothing to do with the issue, I'll be buying a new HD soon for more space. I've been having the system interrupts problem for about 6 months now and have since filled up my HDs.
THANK YOU FOR TAKING THE TIME TO HELP ME FIGURE THIS OUT!
GET BACK TO ME ASAP AND I CAN PROVIDE ALL OF THE INFO MIGHT NEED TO HELP ME FIX THIS PROBLEM!
Every thread I've seen online regarding System Interrupts just fizzles out with no REAL fix. It's frustrating, to say the least.
