Windows 7: GSOD while playing games

GSOD while playing games

I have purchased a brand new Graphic Card. From the moment I have installed it into my PC, every time I play a game, it crashes - it does a "GSOD - Grey screen od death" - screen here: http://www.hardwarecanucks.com/wp-co...n-of-death.png

Depending on the game's performance, it crashes sometimes faster sometimes slower. It crashes ONLY during playing the game. At random times. I have tried almost anything, my old card works fine, I tried several drivers, I have the most up-to-date BIOS and DRIVERS, I did a RMA but they told me that the card is OK with no problems... I dont know what else to do - someone told me that it might be some kind of BIOS issue/failure. I also tried lowering the GPU's frequency.

Also, it is not always pure GSOD, sometimes the lines are green etc, sometimes the sound goes into LOOP.

Please help :-)

Thanks in advance,
Karlos

My GPU temp did not go over 80C. When I play, the temp can be around 45C and it crashes, so I dont think it is a overheating problem.

are all your drivers up to date?
are you overclocking anything?
if so stop and revert to stock settings.

My drivers are all up to date (it is in my first post), including MOBO and other stuff. My GPU is an OC version, so I even tried to put it down, did not help. I am not overclocking anything.
