    ok, first of all, sorry about my bad english!
    i know its a long post, sorry

    Couple weeks ago, i got an Asus GTX470 1280MB and im having some problems
    what i did before install the VGA

    1 - i reinstaled win 7 with new drivers
    2 - updated the MB bios version

    when i was playing Crysis, BFBC2 and Prototype the screen just freeze with some artifacts and i had to reboot but i could play WoW with all graphics on the max without any problems

    the prototype problem i solved turning off the AA so i could play without any freeze!

    so i decided to use Driver Sweeper n clean the video drivers n reinstall a version from the Asus Site (259.19)

    now i can play BF n Crysys without many problems, but there's something strange happening

    sometimes my VGA just seems to turn off for 2 or 3 seconds (the cooler stop) n then on again, the screen goes black (when it happens when im playing WoW it just turn on again n and i can keep playing without any problems but when it happen in other games just freeze)

    i have no idea what is the problem, low Core Voltage? (im using the default 1018 according to Afterburner any problems if i raise it to 1089?) memory problems on the VGA?

    pls i need some help with, if u guys need any other information tell me pls

    All temps are normal, no more than 80ºC for the GPU n 60ºC for PCB (while im playing)

    this is my config

    Core I7 2600 3,4 Gh
    Asus P8p67 Deluxe
    Corsair DDR3 2x2gb 1333
    Corsair Cmpsu-750tx 750w Atx

    artifact with AA on sounds like a memory issue. either your memory voltage regulator is buggered or your VRAM is corrupt if you are not seeing overheating.
    RMA tiem.

    I removed and reinstalled the VGA Driver, now i can play with AA on (in fact i played BF with 32x) without any problems, only the turning on and off issue sometimes (like 1 time a day). Can this is still be a memory or voltage regulator issue?
