Windows 7: DNF turns off monitor - gfx issue?

DNF turns off monitor - gfx issue?

I am aware of the fact that my current gfx cards may be low end for DNF (Radeon 5750x2) but what is happening is that the game shuts down the monitor ingame. Like shutting down the signal (?). This occurs anytime from 5 minutes in to the game up to 30 minutes or so.
Only solution to get signal back is a hard reset. AFAIK.

I have set up a GPU monitoring software (AMD Overdrive) to measure temps and will post logs here later, my intention with this post is to figure out any other verification measure I might take to verify that this is indeed this game overloading gfx cards?

Issue as found at Take2 forums.

Yeah, sounds like overheating. Could be that your gpu just needs a fresh layer of thermal paste. This is assuming that you can't Alt-tab or CTRL-ALT-DEL out of the game? The screen goes black, but the PC is still running?

Exactly. No way out.

I will be switching the GPUs within a couple of days. Will check the old ones before reusing, which I will.

Update the GPU to the latest drivers: ATI Radeon

Also update DirectX: Download Details - Microsoft Download Center - DirectX End-User Runtime

Not sure. Need to check that up, but I havn't had time to switch them GPU's yet so it is low priority for the moment.
