Windows 7: Kernel power id41 issues while idling or browsing

Kernel power id41 issues while idling or browsing


I've been having a fairly common set of issues ever since I got my new rig.
Can't recall when I started noticing, but there's always been these weird graphical artifacts when browsing or playing games, not enough to break the game, but annoying miscolored color noises. So, I started cleaning my old drivers and using new ones, but nothing worked.
I also got some BSoD crashes, which after looking into them the ATI drivers were flagged, but the weird thing is that these crashes tend to occur when I?m not playing; either when I leave the computer idling, or when I'm browing a lot of web pages at once.
I'm this close to getting a new graphics card, since when I use my onboard one, the graphical glitches don't happen, but the weird power failure kernel event does.

I've attatched a dmg collector dump file that I did this morning, and I'm going to install some new drivers and see what happens
