Windows 7: GTX 560 Ti Long Term Graphics Issues

GTX 560 Ti Long Term Graphics Issues

So, I just recently got myself setup with an Alienware Area 51 computer with a nVidia GTX 560 Ti card. Of course, it is an OEM specially made card, so obviously, there will be some issues with trying to use the nVidia drivers unless it comes from the OEM maker.

However, I ran into this unique problem I have never seen before. I ran my last computer, a Dell XPS 720 with 8 Gigs of Ram, Win 7x64 Ultimate, Core 2 Duo E6600 (2.4 GHz) with a nVidia GTS 250 card roughly 24/7. Never had graphical glitches, like textures being miscolored or stretched into weird angles.

With this rig, an Alienware Area 51 with 12 gigs of ram, Win 7x64 ultimate, i7 960 (Quad core, 3.2 GHz), nVidia GTX 560 Ti card, after about almost 2 days of running, I start to see only within 3D games textures issues (Miscolored, stretched, weird boxes).

If I shut down the computer, then restart it, it seems to go away. The desktop has no problems and there are no hard crashes. I am curious if anyone else has noticed similar problems?

Also, I know it isn't overheating, as I do monitor the temperature within the system and at most, the card doesn't go over 84C under a full load and the internal of the system has never registered over 35C.
