Windows 7: New Graphics Card Crashing Game/Windows

New Graphics Card Crashing Game/Windows

Hello All,

Normally I can deduce enough information from Google and searching for the errors that I might get but right now I'm stumped. I just gotten a new MSI N560-GTX-Ti 1mb Graphics Card and replaced my old nvidia 8800GT (which had fan speed issues). I had a very stable system as I used MSI afterburner to up the fan speed to 100% which ran fine for a month or so, but I was a bit nervous at some of the heat readings I was getting so I opted to get another card.

Since putting this in 3 days ago I've been through all sorts of hell with it. I play Perfect World International and when playing the game I have had all sorts of bug reports (crashes) and 3 blue screens all pointing to different things. I've tried compatibility mode changes and everything I can think of but nothing has worked.

So far I have used memtest86+ overnight and memory is fine (as I said soon as I put in other graphics card it had these errors). I have also ran stress tests on the new graphics card and it's all passed with flying colors so I don't see bad memory or cpu on the graphics card. DI have monitored it's temps and it's not even broken 60 yet so I know it's not overheating. I am beginning to think it may have to do with the power supply. I will post up all the dmp files from minidump and system specs and see if we can agree it maybe be just buying a better power supply for the system, or if it may be something else I didn't think of checking.

See attached for the debugs and dxdiag for all system information.

Quick System Info:
Processor: AMD Athlon 64 X2 6400+ Windsor 3.2GHz 2 x 1MB L2 Cache Socket AM2 125W Dual-Core Processor ADX6400CZBOX
RAM: Patriot Extreme Performance 4GB (2 x 2GB) 240-Pin DDR2 SDRAM DDR2 800 (PC2 6400) Dual Channel Kit Desktop Memory Model PDC24G6400LLK
Motherboard: ASUS M2N-E AM2 NVIDIA nForce 570 Ultra MCP ATX AMD Motherboard
Power Supply: OCZ GameXStream OCZ700GXSSLI 700W ATX12V SLI Certified CrossFire Ready Active PFC Power Supply
GFX Card: MSI N560GTX-TI Twin Frozr II/OC GeForce GTX 560 Ti (Fermi) 1GB 256-bit GDDR5 PCI Express 2.0 x16 HDCP Ready SLI Support Video Card

This is Ampage for the power supply:

Any help or ideas are very much appreciated

Yes I have done a complete clean install (also running driver cleaner pro to make sure it was completely gone) then installed the new drivers for the card.
