I'm not trying to be an alarmist but it could be the card. But with that being said after surfing the net for the error file listed it doesn't seem limited to just that card but a bunch of different cards. With no real fix evident.
Yea fabe, I also found all the people with similar or the same problem and no fix. Many forums pointed towards your guys (sevenforums) so I thought I would give it a go. My last resort is RMAing and/or Trading up for a better BFG card

Watching that video with the artifacts suggests the card may be failing, especially when you mention the display stopped responding issue. Now the "Display driver stopped responding and has recovered" error is an issue in and of itself, but again, looking at your supplied video, it looks like a bad or over heating video card, which will also give you that error.

Are you in a position to swap video cards? If so, do that and see what happens.

I saw on the egg that their were only 5 reviews with 1 that died within a week. One good thing is with BFG I've never had any problems with them and RMA's as a matter of fact once they didn't have any of my cards in stock so they upgraded me. Like I have written before when if comes to graphics cards I only buy from XFX,Evga and BFG. Cause warranty and customer service with graphic cards is very important to me. Since they have a higher rate of failures or problems than other hardware, or it seems. Fabe

Yes I am in a position to RMA the card through BFG. However I don't want to do it unless I know that is the problem(since I would be without a vid card for maybe 2 weeks) given I do have ATI onboard vid card.....

I can't remember but does BFG cross ship? At least you can still use your onboard in the mean time.

You can call or e-mail BFG and see if they can send you a card before shipping your old one back to them, but I believe that will require a credit card payment first, then when you ship them your old one they reimburse your charges back to you credit card.

That might be a hassle but...

Try running with a room fan blowing on the open case. It could be a heat issue. This way, you'll know either way from testing.

Also, visit the maker of your RAM's site to see the correct Vdimm (RAM voltage) and timings. Adjust motherboard accordingly.
