Fingers crossed it was just software based.

Even though it's a new card, unfortunately that's not a guarantee that all is fine as some cards can be duds from day one.

(I'm not trying to be Mr. Doom and Gloom, I'm just presenting a potential worst case scenario )

That 50c temp, was that an idle temp or at load?

You can use GPU-Z to monitor and log your temps:

Normally the temp is 32 - 34 at idle, and 50 - 55c at load with games. Playing both CSS and the RPG it maybe hit 45c tops, but it could have gone higher due to my room being hotter than hell. GPU-z, I already have. I dont have a log created though. I already monitor with gpu-z. The last time it happened was last week I think, with CSS. I was mid game and it just lost it and went grey screen. That was on xp with 9.12 drivers.
