Issue with HD 6850

So I have windows 7 64 bit home premium and I just got a new graphics card 2 days ago (Radeon HD 6850) and since then the device driver has "stopped responding" 4 times now while playing the game "world of warcraft" and twice it caused my system to shut down. Any idea whats causing this and how to fix it?

test your card with one stick of ram at a time to see if it runs could be ram related

I dont know if this is relevant in any way but the drive just stopped respoinding and recovered while browsing the web (no other programs open).

Also I have never played with my computer parts I dont want to damage or wreck my ram in any way.. I have had the tech guy to work on my computer I would not even know what to look for.
